The Little Kernel Mini Popcorn, owned by Cristian Rivera Foundation Board of Director Andy Epstein, Chris Laurita and The Cristian Rivera Foundation have teamed up to help a Minnesota DIPG boy´s
wish come true.
Cristian Rivera Foundation Founder John Rivera learned about the boy´s wish through Barbara Anderson, who lost her daughter Lily Larue to DIPG.
John immediately contacted Allen´s mother.
John then called The Cristian Rivera Foundation Board of Directors
Andy Epstein, Darlene Rodriguez & Craig Serra and they all agreed
we need to help.
Please help by making a tax deductible donation to the Cristian Rivera Foundation, so we can help Allen and so many children like him.
The mission of the Cristian Rivera Foundation is to help find the cure for the Pontine Glioma brain stem tumor.
What is DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma)?
Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma or
DIPG, is a Rare, Inoperable Brain Stem Tumor that predominantly affects children between the ages of 2 and 10. Only 200-300 cases are discovered in the United States each year and because there is no cure, it’s young victims only have an average of 3-18 months to live, after they’ve been diagnosed. There are NO SURVIVORS.
Who is The Cristian Rivera Foundation?
The Cristian Rivera Foundation is a 501 (c)(3) Non-Profit Organization that works tirelessly, in order to raise awareness and funds to one day put a STOP to this disease. The Cristian Rivera Foundation funds the work of Dr. Mark Souweidane of Weill Cornell Medical Center – Memorial Sloane (Kettering) Cancer Center and Dr. Oren Becher of Duke University. Both Doctors are conducting promising research and trails that have shown promising results. We are CLOSE to a CURE!
