Annika 2014 - She needs us

Raised by 100 people in 59 months
We get small moments of joy time to time, and when we stop to enjoy those moments, sometimes they fly right by. I can imagine everyone has their story and time when they need some help and right now Annika needs us, she is the joy in our lives and we don’t want this one to fly by.

Today she has been diagnosed once again with a Brain Tumor. Unlike last time this one is fairly large and aggressive, her surgery is scheduled for this month and possibly in 2 parts, the first being rather extensive. Her Parents are currently seeking any and all ways to make sure Annika is going to be in the best hands possible and at the same time live every moment to the fullest.

She was first diagnosed with cancer at 3 years of age in 2010, where they were able to remove the brain tumor, and she underwent radiation and chemotherapy. For the first few years everything was looking good. With her family and friends watching after her nutrition, health, and therapy while sending her lots of prayers, she was well on her way. Unfortunately, last week at her annual exam they found an emergence of another tumor this time on the other side of her brain and larger. The Doctors are going to try as much as possible to remove all of it, but this time Annika and her family will be seeking alternative therapy, clinical trials, and treatment types that her insurance likely will not cover.  That’s where you can help us. We are seeking a fund to offer Annika and her Family the best chance she can get to fight off this Tumor, and at the same time give this little girl the most joy possible while in this situation. Your money will go toward access to alternative treatments, clinical trials, transportation, accommodations, and helping her mind and body heal, but to a little girl of 7 years old, some of that healing is going to be with things she loves and laughs with, so pitch in towards some of the top Alternative medicines available or send her on a weekend trip to bring her a smile. Your love and support will shine through her smiles.

This little girl is not motivated by money, recognition, or by ego, she is simply a joy and a blessing to have in our lives, and reminds us every day we see her.

We all love Annika and want to be there for her when she needs us the most – thank you very much for your donation.



Please help Sarah and Adam, Annika’s Parents raise the support she needs to provide her family the best possible for this time in need.


feel free to cantact me with any other ways to help Annika if you want to help but cannot afford to donate. Everything and Anything can be the help this little girl needs right now.

Annika is well and thriving. She is back in school part time and is loving being with her classmates. We love her school and their willingness to accommodate her needs. She is also in horse back riding therapy every week. We are learning a lot about nutritional healing and alternative cancer treatments that are highly beneficial and do no harm. Ultimately we are standing on God's promises and His healing power. Her left field vision that she lost (permanently) from her surgery has been miraculously restored. Praise God! Thank you everyone for your prayers and donations.

Hi everyone...I wanted to give an update on Annika and her progress so far. She was discharged from CHLA on Monday and Annika has been recovering from surgery. Due to the extensiveness and size of the tumor she has lost left peripheral vision, experiences generalized blurry vision and still has headaches periodically. She is generally in good spirits when the pain is less and we are trusting God for her complete healing. As far as future treatments are concerned, there is nothing that the oncology team can offer with recurrent medulloblastoma. We are seeking out holistic integrative medical care and your generous donations are helping to make that possible. We plan on keeping her in the best of health and providing her with as normal a life as possible. New clinical trials are always being developed and we will of course consider any viable treatments. Once again I want to thank everyone for your kindness and my coworkers for giving of their time so that I may be available to care for Annika and our family as we navigate this difficult road. "I want to keep everyone encouraged by Annika's words herself, "Jesus told me I would be healed and if God says something you have to believe it." Keep up the prayers!

Wow Everyone! The network of supporters has grown so well we are now over 650, and getting about 200 visits a day, this is great news of the huge support that is here for Annika. Right now we need the support the most. Annika is going into surgery tomorrow and we need Everyone's prayers and thoughts to be with her in this very important time in need. Please take a moment tomorrow for Annika. And if you can, show your support through Facebook with the Team Annika ribbon.

I hope that you have truly weighed the option of cannabis oil. My very own mother in law was wracked with cancerous tumors. She had documented proof that after using the oil for only 2-1/2 weeks her tumors were gone. This is not a hoax and the is nothing for me to gain other than the possibility of a Beautiful little girls life becoming easier. PLEASE consider and look into the thousands of success stories like my mother in laws. This in my opinion is much more valuable than a monetary contribution.
