BC Mortgage Professionals Team is excited to be participating in Exile Island 2016 and fundraising to grant Lina's wish!
Lina is a funny and goofy 5-year-old. She LOVES sports, acrobatic dance, swimming, skiing and excels in ninja training and making everyone laugh.
When she was six weeks old, Lina was diagnosed with an intermediate-risk, stage 2, para-spinal Neuroblastoma tumor. Lina has spent countless days in the hospital undergoing chemotherapy sessions, steroid treatments, and even surgery.
During her visits, they discovered that her tumor had a rare chromosomal abnormality, which puts her in a very rare subgroup which there are no effective, clear treatment plans. Thankfully, with Lina's continued chemotherapy, the doctors were able to shrink the tumor.
Although Lina’s life still involves going for frequent scans and meeting with specialists regularly, we are so happy to hear that in 2013 Lina was reported as ‘N.E.D.’: No Evidence of Disease and still to this day is in the second remission.
This beautiful, Ninja Warrior has a wish; her wish is to go on a trip to New Zealand with her big sister, Frieda and their family. She wants to learn the traditional war dance know as -HAKA- and see Tane Mahuta, an ancient tree know as 'The God of the forest.' In preparation, she’s been mastering her Kiwi accent and war chant.
Please help us grant Lina's heartfelt wish! Every donation big or small will help her wish come true. As the Kiwi's would say
"Sincere THANK YOU!"
