ALL in for Kora Lin

The ALL in for Kora Lin Fundraiser is on behalf of our friends Melia Lee and Wayne Weeks’ daughter, Kora Lin.

On May 10, 2020, Mother’s Day, our dear friend’s daughter, Kora Lin, was airlifted to Riley Children's Hospital in Indianapolis, Indiana. What at first was an ear infection at IU urgent care, turned into something much more sinister. After 24 hours in the ER at Riley Children's Hospital, 4 IVs, 3 blood and platelet transfusions, a spinal tap, and a heartbreaking bone marrow biopsy, almost 2 years old Kora Lin was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). 

Melia Lee and Wayne Weeks, Kora’s parents, and other family members will be painfully watching their sweet, precious girl go on the path towards defeating ALL for many months to come. Doctors, pharmacists, and nurses have been wholeheartedly combating Kora’s diagnosis ever since she was airlifted to Riley’s Children Hospital. Instead of chasing dragonflies and spending time with her sister, Kimber, Kora will be going through various treatments to defeat ALL. Though the journey towards ending Kora’s cancer will be prolonged and fraught, all of us are overly optimistic about her treatment! 

Kora Lin is so much more than her cancer. This remarkable little girl loves spending as much time with her big sister, Kimber, as she can. Ever since she was born, Kora has been laughing and smiling as much as possible, especially around her big sister and grandmother. When not laughing, she loves spending as much outdoor time with her father, Wayne, as possible, as well as endless singing and dancing with her mom! All of the love for Kora will help her through this journey! 

The ALL in for Kora Lin Fundraiser has been organized by Melia Lee’s friends in order to ease any financial impacts that may be brought on Melia Lee and family through Kora’s tragic cancer diagnosis. Any contribution, no matter the amount, will graciously help Kora’s family with any medical treatment and healing processes. Donations will help go toward medical-related payments and any travel expenses endured. The purpose of this fundraiser will also help Kora’s family spend the necessary effort and energy towards Kora as much as possible during these trying times. 

Thank you for any and all support given to Kora Lin! 


With the utmost sympathy and thanks, 

Nico Hoon, Morgan Hunter, Eric Davis, Chris Knipp, Edgar Llamas, Abbie Shockley, and Blaine Holderbaum
