The Rafa Foundation was founded in 2013 by Rafael Etessami, the son of Liz Etessami and the nephew of Lawrence, Moossa and Eddie LeVian. The a non-profit charity was created to help cancer patients and their families cope with the everyday struggles of cancer through the creation of a multi-tiered support system. As a three-time cancer survivor who succumbed to the disease in 2018, Rafael had discovered that when cancer strikes, it attacked not only the body but also attacked one’s social and emotional well-being. In 2013, Etessami stated, “Through my battles with cancer, I learned that one of the most effective tools in coping and recovery was a multi-tiered support system which allowed me to heal both emotionally and physically.” Inform the LeVian family of your donation by clicking the "Make a Pledge" button, and a matching donation will be made.
