My Story

Hello! We live in the beautiful island of Oahu, we are a military family that loves going to the beach and been outdoors. Our beautiful daughter Nalani 13 was diagnosed in February 2017 with lymphoma after a couple of months of doctors thinking her swollen lymph nodes were just a sign of her body fighting an infection. We went from thinking is just an infection to having a biopsy done and getting the news that it was cancer. She started chemotherapy on the same month and she's been fighting this disease ever since. She has showed us what a fighter she is with her strength and determination. She cannot wait to feel better and do the things she loves doing. Thank you for supporting us and let's keep the good work going so no child would suffer from this disease anymore.
