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 our fight against the disease, we discovered an unknown reality: childhood cancer research was, and still, not advancing. We decided that we could not just sit back and do nothing, thus our foundation was born in February 2013.
During the development of the foundation, we decided not to be just another pediatric cancer foundation and only focus on fund research. We decided to have a disruptive approach that directly fights pediatric cancers as well as increase childhood cancer awareness and strengthening community.
