Description

About us:
The mission of the Cristian Rivera Foundation is to help find the cure for the Pontine Glioma brain stem tumor that ultimately claimed Cristian’s young life. The Cristian Rivera Foundation is a 501(c)(3) tax-exempt non-profit organization that donates all monies raised to hospitals and foundations actively researching cures for Pontine Glioma through medical trials and scientific research. The foundation has already contributed $700,000 to the research of Dr. Mark Souweidane of Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and the Director of the Weill Cornell Medical College Pediatric Brain and Spine Center. Dr. Souweidane, inspired by his patient Cristian Rivera and other children and their families affected by devastating childhood cancers, launched a pioneering FDA-approved clinical trial in 2012 that introduced a surgical component to the treatment of children with Pontine Glioma for the first time. The innovative use of convection-enhanced delivery (CED) is the first of its kind to administer radio immunotherapy to children with an otherwise incurable tumor.

The Position:
The Cristian Rivera Foundation is looking for interns to assist in planning the annual gala in late November. There will be data entry and some administrative work. Social media savvy is necessary. Internship to begin immediately in Edgewater NJ. There is a small stipend.

Requirements

Self-starter attitude, ambitious and hardworking.
