Joel Colima's Funeral

Joel Colima aka Big Happy was the most resilient person ever. He began his journey August 2013 when he was first diagnosed with Hemophagocytic Lymphohistiocytosis (HLH). He went through many rounds of chemotherapy, a bone marrow transplant, photopheresis, dialysis, endless days in hospital. Although Joel was very ill, he was the happiest kid alive and never stopped smiling. Joel was a warrior who fought till the end when his heart gave out at 2:04pm on April 25,2016.

All funds will go to Joel Colima's funeral expenses a great person that fought every battle with his all. Every donation is truly appreciated Thank You.
