Organized by: Manu Raam

THE STORY:

Aisha Ramirez was a wonderful, vivacious 14 year old girl with osteogenesis imperfecta, a condition in which her bones were extremely fragile and prone to fractures.

Her life was tragically cut short on June 11, 2016, and we ask for your help in raising funds to help her family afford a memorial service for her.

We have been following Aisha at Shriners Hospitals for Children since she was a tiny baby, and she has been an absolute joy at each of her visits in our clinic.

Aisha received regular, tiring infusions of a medicine to help fortify her bones, but she would always bargain with us in her hilarious, feisty way.

After her IV line was started each time, without fail, she would immediately send her mother to the cafeteria to bring her back a full, hearty breakfast.

Following breakfast, she would constantly spend the next three hours chatting away on the phone, despite telling us that she didn't have too many friends.

When Aisha turned eight years old, she received a new baby sister, whom she did not hesitate to boss around in the clinic room.  "I'm the older one, and you have to respect your older sister!"

Aisha didn't get to attend school for a long time, because of the accommodations she needed.  But when she finally started school, she was a fantastic, bilingual student and received excellent grades.

Because of Aisha's frequent fractures, she often had to wear splints with padding on her arms and legs.  This amused her to no end, because now she could pretend to be a burrito.

Aisha's feisty spirit extended to how she dealt with her chronic condition.  She was tough in her own way, and loved to live in the moment.  We will miss her dearly.

Please help Aisha's family by contributing whatever amount you can, large or small.  Thank you!
