Mahlina on the Mend
Organized by: Rachel Rear
Mahlina is a spirited, energetic, funny, and courageous 3-year-old who happens to be the younger daughter of my best friend and fellow middle school teacher Felicia. At the end of June, she was suddenly diagnosed with AML, a treatable form of leukemia. She is in the beginning stages of fighting cancer, and she is in bright spirits even if a little tired. Felicia and her family are going to need a lot of love and support. Your donation will go directly to Felicia for Mahlina's medical costs, general living expenses like rent and such (Felicia will have to take an FMLA leave from our school for at least a half a year, if not more), hospital expenses like parking, and sibling care for Mahlina's brave big sister Kailani. Please give whatever you can so that life can go on as smoothly and comfortably as possible for Mahlina and her loved ones as she valiantly faces her illness so that she can be playing and swimming again by next summer! PS You just have to scroll through the photos on the left to see how sweet and fun Mahlina is!
