The Andrea Rizzo Foundation I want to give back some of what I have been fortunate enough to receive

Welcome to Dréa's Dream             

The Andréa Rizzo Foundation was established in memory of Andréa Rizzo, a beautiful young woman who survived childhood cancer and was tragically killed at the age of 24 by a drunk driver.  Her dream was to become a dance therapist and give children with cancer and disabilities the gift of dance.  With the support of many, her dream has become a reality. Our goal is to foster Andréa’s dream of helping children with cancer and special needs through the power of dance.
