Showing children battling cancer and their families that they are not alone in their fight, they have an army behind them
NORTH MIAMI BEACH, FL, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Despite the pandemic children continue to battle pediatric cancer and fight for their lives.
This Saturday September 18th during National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month the Mystic Force Foundation will once again join forces with Nicklaus Children’s Hospital, the North Miami Police Department and Police Agencies from across South Florida, as well as SuperHeroes vehicles, exotic cars, and families battling Childhood Cancer in a monumental show of support for the bravest little Heroes battling the #1 disease killer of children in this country.
The Gold Ribbon Parade will start at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital where over 45 Gold Ribbon adorned vehicles will cover the top floor of the parking garage in view of the patient rooms. Children and their families will be able to see the monumental show of love for them as they wave up to the children looking out of their hospital windows.
The caravan will depart with lights & sirens blaring in an unprecedented show of Hope, Love & Unity in the fight against Childhood Cancer. The Gold Ribbon Parade will depart Nicklaus and drive-by Holtz Children’s Hospital at Jackson Memorial and then on to Joe DiMaggio Children’s Hospital letting children and families know, they are not alone in their fight.
The Gold Ribbon Parade marks the Foundation’s 4th Annual Childhood Cancer Police Car Initiative which will be led by Chief Juriga and the North Miami Police Department’s dedicated Gold Childhood Cancer Police Vehicle. This vehicle joins the Mystic Force Foundation at events throughout the year to bring joy and happiness to kids battling cancer.
Although September is National Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, for Mystic Force and all families with a child battling cancer EVERY day is a day to raise awareness. September is the one month nationally recognized for children battling cancer and it is the Hope of the Foundation that we may one day see as much GOLD in September as we see Pink in October.

The Mystic Force Foundation was founded in 2008 by Dr. Steven & Silvia Vanni after their then 4-year-old son, Salvatore, was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma Cancer. Salvatore lost his battle with cancer in 2011 but his legacy continues to change the lives of all children battling this devastating disease. This year is the Foundation’s 13-year Anniversary of raising awareness and desperately needed funds for Childhood Cancer Research, as well as advocacy in Washington, DC, granting ‘Wishes’, delivering toys, holding in-patient hospital parties, and bringing Hope, Joy, Happiness and Smiles to the littlest Heroes battling Childhood Cancer. They are also celebrating the 3rd Anniversary of The Heroes Hangout, the country’s first and only Childhood Cancer Haven located in North Miami Beach that is sponsored by the Dante Law Firm and is 100% community supported.
