A Tribute to Noah Bella

$38,995 of $35,000 goal

Raised by 323 people in 29 months
If there was ever a soul who was here to save the world, it was Noah Bella. She was a super hero to everyone who knew her and a heart-hero to many who didn't.

A lover of tiny things, stuffies, Star Wars, board and video games, animals, hats, reading and all things living, Noah began Noah's Festival of Life as a way to celebrate and give back while recovering from her 4th open heart surgery. She was just 5 years old at the time.

As a child with complex congenital heart disease, also known as CHD, Noah has always been focused on helping others throughout all 4 of her open heart surgeries, several cath procedures, various hospital stays and just the daily challenges of being a 13 year old kid. To date, Noah Bella has raised over $100,000 through her Festival and numerous Lemonade stands, and is the Junior Ambassador for the Hopeful Hearts Foundation. Hopeful Hearts has used those funds to help heart families across the country by providing financial assistance and care packages.

As many of you know, their journey led the Michaelis family to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia in December, where Noah underwent a new cath procedure to treat a severe condition diagnosed just prior to this past Noah's Festival of Life in October. For nearly a month, both Keith and Cecile fought alongside  Noah in Philadelphia, until she passed away on January 3rd.

Celebrating both Christmas and New Year's at CHOP, they have incurred numerous hospital bills and living expenses while across the country during this very difficult time.

For all who have asked how to help and support the Michaelis family, we are joining together to establish a fund as a tribute to Noah to help Keith and Cecile during this time of grief.

Their love and support allowed Noah to fulfill her mission to give back, celebrate life, and always live it to the fullest. Their encouragment allowed Noah to fight with grace and, in the process, forever changing the lives of everyone she touched.

Thank you for all of the love and support for the Michaelis family during this very difficult time.

The generosity of friends, family, as well as people who’ve never met Noah Bella already helped to raise over $35,000.

A memorial for Noah will be held this Sunday, January 29 at 1:30pm at Paramount Ranch located in Agoura Hills.
