Natasha Gould has been fighting DIPG Brain Cancer since May 2015. This last stage of her illness brings many challenges to her family. She cannot speak or walk. They are not able to work as they care for her and support her. Please donate.

Dear Friends,

May 1st 2015, Natasha (at that time 11 yrs old) was diagnosed with DIPG, a rare and agressive form of brain cancer.  Despite there being no known cure, and a post-diagnosis life-expectancy of 12-18 months, Natasha and her family (Saskia, Bill and Liam (15yrs)) have faced this illness with courage, grace and tremendous hope.

Natasha has been an incredible inspiration to many around the world. During this past year, she has dedicated her time to give a voice to how it truly feels to be a child with cancer. Through her blogs, vlogs, TEDx Talk and many public appearances she has created a community of awareness for this rare form of childhood cancer.

In the past month, Natasha's health has taken a sudden and dramatic turn for the worse. She is no longer able to speak or walk and struggles with life's simplest functions such as swallowing. Her parents and brother dedicate their time to helping her with daily tasks and care - and are not able to work at their self-employed jobs.

Our hearts and prayers are with them in this difficult time - and we ask that if you can help them, please make a donation to assist with cost-of-living expenses.

In addition, Natasha and her family are considering how funds raised can help battle childhood cancer. Natasha took on an advocacy role and her family wants to continue that momentum. We will share more information as this develops.
