Our story


WHY DO WE EXIST?


On November 29th, 2011, Richi was diagnosed with high-risk medulloblastoma, one of the most aggressive childhood brain tumors in existence. He had just turned 6 years old. One year later, Richi finished his treatment after having endured 18 surgeries, radiation and chemotherapy.

Richi is now considered a cancer survivor and continues his fight daily while living with a long list of side effects. 

In their fight against the disease, Richi's parents discovered an unknown reality and decided that they could not just sit back and do nothing.

Patients and their families suffer social isolation

It affects them from the time of diagnosis and accompanies many of them for the rest of their lives. 

Childhood cancer research is NOT advancing

Few funds are allocated
to research because
it is considered
low-incidence.

The lack of
expertise limits
the prognosis

Not all patients have
the same opportunities
to access the highest levels
of expertise.

Thus our foundation was born
in February 2013.
