Hello my name is Lisa, I am a good friend of Katja and her daughter Hoku. As many of you may already know, Hoku's father, Curtis Panoke, was involved in a serious accident while undergoing treatment at a medical institution in Colimbia, South Carolina, that has resulted in him being in a coma since June 9, 2016, with severe head injuries. Katja and Hoku were already on their way back to Hawaii after being away for 6 1/2 years and were finally going to be reunited with him (he was supposed to return home towards the end of the summer) when the news about this came to them. They were devastated. Being so far away from Curtis at this time hasn’t been easy for them. We are praying and hoping God would make a way for them to visit him in South Carolina, so Hoku could be with her daddy. They have been communicating with him by speaking on the phone into his ear regularly, and each time he is responding more (opening eyes, increased heart rate etc.). We believe that Katja and Hoku being there at this time would help his recovery. The total cost for them to visit him would be around $5000. Any monetary amount to reach their goal would greatly help. We thank you with all our hearts for your generosity and your prayers. God Bless you all. With love, Lisa Shaw, Katja and Hoku
