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, Ricardo and Ketty, discovered an unknown reality and decided that they could not just sit back and do nothing . Thus, the Richi Childhood Cancer Foundation was born in February 2013 with the mission to ensure that all children and adolescents who suffer from cancer have the best prognosis and quality of life.


Through our initatives, Richi Entrepreneurs and Richi Innovation Camp, we can build awareness for the Richi Foundation and provide an opportunity for our community to engage with us directly. Both initiatives focus on cultivation change makers while adding value to society beyond our cause and building empathy for our mission. All the proceeds from Richi Initiatives go to support the Richi Foundation’s mission.
