Join The Association for Women in Communications South Florida Chapter for November Meetup honoring Silvia Dominguez Vanni, Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Mystic Force Foundation for Childhood Cancer.
As a Childhood Cancer advocate, Silvia spends a lot of time in Washington, DC educating members of Congress to the number one disease killer of children in our country and to plead for increased funding for Childhood Cancer Research. Another role Silvia has taken on is to bring joy and happiness to kids battling this devastating disease thru monthly inpatient hospital parties and the granting of ‘Wishes’ whenever possible. Silvia is on the Board of Directors for the Greater North Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce and a member of the National Association of Professional Women, having been named Woman of the Year in 2012. Silvia also has a blog, Waking Up With A Broken Heart, An Eternal Struggle To Survive where she writes her thoughts on Love & Grief.

About Silvia Dominguez Vanni:
Silvia Dominguez Vanni is the Co-Founder and Executive Director of the Mystic Force Foundation for Childhood Cancer. She is a native of Miami Beach, Florida. After graduating from McArthur High School, Silvia graduated from the Early Childhood Education program at Sheridan Technical College and went on to meet her husband and have 5 children. In 2007 her youngest son, Salvatore, was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma Cancer at the age of 4 & ½ and suffered through 3 & ½ years of painful and torturous treatments, he passed away one month shy of his eighth Birthday. This life altering diagnosis came with the mind-boggling realization that a large percentage of children diagnosed with cancer die due to a lack of treatment options which in turn is due to a lack of funding for Childhood Cancer Research. It is now Silvia’s mission in life to save every child from the same fate her own son faced and to make their lives while in treatment as happy as possible, whenever possible.
