Voices Against Brain Cancer Commends Mother for the Way She Honors Her Daughter’s Death
Date:5/17/2013

New York, NY (PRWEB) May 17, 2013

On May 17, 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. She mentioned that her surrounding community was very supportive of the Klein family during their rough times.

Micki went on to create Riah’s Rainbow, a nonprofit organization that was “established to enrich the lives of children who have to endure any length of stay in the hospital.”

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, current patients and family members of loved ones who suffered from brain cancer to come together. “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. It is important that everyone who has been affected by brain cancer can come together to support each other.”

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.
