The Mystic Force Foundation was founded by Dr. Steven & Silvia Vanni in honor of their son, Salvatore, who at the age of 4 was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma Cancer.
Our main objective is to raise awareness of Childhood Cancer and desperately needed funds for research to bring less toxic, more effective treatments for these children. We also strive to enhance the lives of children battling Childhood Cancer through in-patient hospital parties and granting 'Wishes' whenever possible. Our ultimate goal is to find a cure for all the children afflicted with this very painful and aggressive disease.
100% of money donated to the Mystic Force Foundation goes directly to fund research at various institutions across the country including the Research Lab @ the University of Miami Miller School of Medicine under the direction of Dr. Regina Graham. Special fundraisers are held to help families in need of financial assistance during childhood cancer treatments. All updates on recent research at the University of Miami can be found on the Current Research Updates section of our site. All fundraising events can be found on the News & Events section.
Our Foundation has no paid employees. All Directors and fundraising committee members donate their time to the Mystic Force Foundation. All fundraising event & auction items are donated. Family Fun Night parties at Miami Children's Hospital, Joe DiMaggio Children's Hospital & others are made possible by the generosity of people and companies who donate their time, toys, resources and who sponsor the monthly dinners. Sponsors and volunteers are always needed and greatly appreciated.
Finding a cure will take millions of dollars in research, your contribution is greatly appreciated as it will bring us closer to our goal.
Please......Help Us Find A Cure!
