Global Dance Initiative HERO, The Andréa Rizzo Foundation provided tickets to Radio City’s production of the Spring Spectacular with the Rockettes and Derek Hough of Dancing With The Stars … for a young Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center (MSKCC) patient. Below is a mother’s note to the foundation that we wanted to share with you so that you can see how the power of dance is benefiting many at MSKCC in New York City. What a beautiful gift … to such a beautiful child!
Dear Ms. Susan Rizzo Vincent and everybody at The Andrea Rizzo Foundation,
I am writing this email to say THANK YOU VERY MUCH for the tickets that you gave to my daughter to see the The Rockettes, Spring Spectacular. She enjoyed it so much and still talks about it with excitement.
We came to know The Andréa Rizzo Foundation when she was in intensive treatments at Memorial Sloan Kettering hospital in 2013. She was so happy that day when the dance therapists came and danced with the kids. She forgot every pain, nausea and everything from the everyday chemo. Now, she is still in maintenance chemotherapy.
Thanks to the Team Doctors, everybody at the hospital, every volunteer, and every dance therapist that has come and supported us. Hope she’ll grow up healthy and help the kids who suffer too.
Thank you and may God bless your kind hearts.
A mother of a child who is being treated at MSKCC
