Voices Against Brain Cancer Applauds Mother For Starting Riah’s Rainbow Organization
Date:5/15/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 15, 2013

On May 15, Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy praises Micki Klein for creating the organization, Riah’s Rainbow, in honor of her daughter Mariah, who lost her battle with brain cancer.

According to a Green Bay Press Gazette article, two-year-old Mariah Klein was diagnosed with a rare and aggressive brain tumor called Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma back in 2007. Unfortunately, Mariah lost her battle with brain cancer after just 15 months.

While undergoing harrowing treatment, Mariah enjoyed coloring and arts and crafts. After she passed, Micki wanted to do something that would really help those who were still battling with the disease. In her daughter’s memory, she created Riah’s Rainbow, a nonprofit organization that created to alleviate some of the hardships that come from lengthy stays at a hospital. She wanted to create an organization that could give back to the community and help other children suffering from other illnesses. According to the article, Riah’s Rainbow provides things like “coloring books and craft items to children in similar treatment situations as Mariah.”

Michael Klipper, chairman of Voices Against Brain Cancer, an organization dedicated to brain cancer research and advocacy, believes that it is important for survivors to come together with current patients and family members. “Even though Mariah sadly lost her battle with brain cancer, Riah’s Rainbow is a beautiful outcome of this otherwise unfortunate situation and it will bring color and light to young cancer patients for years to come,” he says. “This organization gives children a chance to have fun doing what they love. It’s also important for everyone who has been affected by brain cancer to come together to support each other and this organization definitely promotes that.”

VABC has a wide variety of initiatives in place for brain cancer research, awareness and support. The organization’s research grants fund cutting-edge research programs that will have a monumental impact on the diagnosis and treatment of brain cancer. VABC currently funds research at several esteemed institutions such as Brookhaven National Laboratory, Cleveland Clinic, Columbia, Cornell, Duke, Harvard, John Hopkins, Memorial Sloan-Kettering and Yale, to name a few.

VABC's mission is to find a cure for brain cancer by advancing scientific research, increasing awareness within the medical community and supporting patients, their families and caregivers afflicted with this devastating disease.
