On January 25, 2009, the world lost a smart, brave and all-around remarkable 6-year-old boy named Cristian Rivera as his two-year battle with DIPG came to an end. Three years later, we remember Cristian on the anniversary of the day he earned his wings and went to Heaven. Cristian is loved and missed dearly by his father John “Gungie” Rivera, his mother Jenelle Asencio, his big brother JC, his sister Brittnee Hudson, the rest of his friends and family and everyone at The Cristian Rivera Foundation. Throughout his illness, Cristian remained positive and never let the cancer get the best of him. Though his life was cut tragically short, Cristian made an everlasting impression with his affection, loyalty and good sense of humor. His legacy will never be forgotten as we work tirelessly in his name to find a cure for the disease that took his young life.
