About The Dragonfly Foundation
The Dragonfly Foundation, jointly founded in 2010 by Cincinnatians Ria Davidson and Christine Neitzke, helps pediatric cancer patients and their families find strength, courage and joy by providing emotional, relational, and practical support. The fight for excellence in pediatric cancer treatment is important, but no less important is the commitment The Dragonfly Foundation is making to support families striving for fulfilling and complete lives during and after treatment. Though treatment may end, and, illness be cured or managed, the long-term effects of internal group tension, familial isolation, post-traumatic stress, anxiety of recurrence as well as the emotional, physical and financial tolls on families often linger for years. While the importance of quality healthcare is a commonly shared value, The Dragonfly Foundation’s urgent, passionate mission is to offer families a holistic, uncompromising, fighting chance at well-being.
