Monday January, 9 2012 was a sad day for the entire DIPG community as Heaven gained another DIPG Angel. Eleven-year-old Samuel Tyler Kidd lost his battle with DIPG at 9:30 that morning. His parents, Mark and Mindy, will always remember him as vibrant, fun-loving, caring little boy. He had a huge heart of pure gold and always smiled no matter what. Tyler put up a brave fight against DIPG and was an example of incredible courage and strength. The Cristian Rivera Foundation extends our sincerest sympathy and condolences at what is surely an unimaginably difficult time for Tyler’s family and friends. Samuel Tyler Kidd will always stay in our thoughts and prayers.
