Devastated by the loss of my best friend Daniella Saveski, I found a way to transform my grief into a means of helping others. In 2007, after numerous misdiagnoses from doctors, my best friend was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer. While she was given less than a year to live, Daniella fought through with a smile and an infectious sense of grace for 2 1/2 years. When she passed away in November 2009 at the age of 21, I couldn’t bear to let her go. Her passion for life and her giving spirit is a legacy that she left in my heart and motivates me, to not only see a hurting world and wonder what can I do, but to feel it and move into action. When I discovered Angel House Rescue Orphanage, I knew this was the opportunity I had been looking for to carry on her legacy.

In March 2011, my family and I began planning. We invited 300 plus guests into our home and celebrated Daniella’s life while raising money to build an orphanage in her memory. Together, because of the inspiration of one life, we are making a difference in the lives of 12 children.

We have raised the funds for the orphanage and now comes the next part - traveling to India to welcome 12 beautiful children into Daniella's Angel House.

I will be forever thankful for the friendship that brought me here and for the legacy of love that will go on in my heart and the hearts of many, especially the children in India.
