Join us for a heartfelt episode of the Ramos Law Difference Makers Podcast as we sit down with Rita Contreras, the compassionate founder and board member of Team Nathaniel, a non-profit organization dedicated to supporting children with cancer and their families. In this emotional conversation, Rita shares the inspiring story of her son Nathaniel, who was diagnosed with osteosarcoma shortly before his 6th birthday.

As Rita guides us through their challenging journey, she opens up about the profound loss of their son at the age of nine and how it motivated her and her husband to create something meaningful in his memory. Team Nathaniel was born out of their desire to honor Nathaniel’s legacy and make a positive impact on other children affected by childhood cancer.

Discover how Team Nathaniel fills the gap in the lives of these brave children and their families by providing vital financial assistance and support. Rita shares the incredible work they do, including their heartwarming initiative of donating Legos to children undergoing treatment, offering a source of comfort and distraction during challenging times.
