I was lucky enough to get to know Greta while she has been in remission, she was diagnosed with retinoblastoma stage 4 at a very young age. She is a bright, loving, sweet, brave girl and brought light to many while she was in the hospital. After being her nanny for many years and becoming close family friends with her family, I knew I wanted to help other families that have children going through cancer. While going to school to become a child life specialist, I have had the opportunity to volunteer on a pediatric unit. Through this experience, I have seen the impact cancer has on children and the stress families go through. I hope to bring families a piece of ease while traveling long distances for treatment.
Vision: To help families with travel expenses to and from the hospital while traveling long distances for chemotherapy in rural Washington where resources are not as plentiful.
