Emilio Nares Foundation
Official Coin Up Partner
The Emilio Nares Foundation (ENF) helps families navigate their child's journey with cancer, and helps give children the best chance of surviving cancer by getting them to treatment on time, every time. Richard and Diane Nares founded ENF in 2003 after their son, Emilio lost his brave battle with cancer at five years old. Emilio's years of treatment included a clinical trial bone marrow transplant with his father, Richard as donor. Diane and Richard turned their loss into a legacy to help other children survive cancer. All services are free to the very low-income families ENF serves. Often parents of these children are mono-lingual Spanish speakers, which makes it even more difficult for them to understand medical treatment plans and support their child’s best chance of survivability.
