After a long, brave fight with ovarian cancer our dear friend Kira left her earthly body last evening on November 14 in her home surrounding by love, light and well wishes of so many loved ones across the globe. The outpouring of love has been a comfort to all who loved her, please keep the well wishes and stories coming.
Along with leaving her body behind she also left behind her beloved young son Quincy just shy of his 8th birthday. Her wish for Quincy has been that her memory and love for him stay alive through all of us as well as knowing that he has monetary support throughout.
Whether you personally know Kira, Quincy or Fitz please make a donation on behalf of every child who has lost their mother too soon, for every mother that had to say goodbye to their child, for every grand baby that will never know their grandmother, for every life that ovarian cancer has affected. It is a horrible disease that takes too many, too many women, too many mothers, too many grandmother, aunts, sisters and friends. Please make a donation on their behalf and most of all for Quincy who's mothers legacy will live on in all of us, in all that is beautiful and in all the butterflies that visit your garden.
I also ask you to share this post far and wide in hopes of bringing awareness to this cruel disease and it horrors of taking all the mothers all too soon.
With Thanks and Gratitude,

Today we have received a sad update from Kira that her cancer has progressed more and now it's in her lymph tissue, liver and spleen. She has been surviving the last 4 years with stage 4 ovarian cancer like a warrior and now in this place and time hospice is her reality.
As a mother her heart, mind, body and spirit are pushed onward for her sweet boy, Quincy. One of her many wishes is to see her young boy turn 8 in January and that he continues to be supported by their community once she passes on and leaves her body. I have listened to Kira and heard her wish that all money raised on this platform be used for Quincy's future. This campaign is linked directly to Quincy's bank account and it will bring his mother Kira some comfort during this trying time.
Please make this donation for every child who has lost their mother too soon, for every mother who has had to say goodbye when all she wanted was to stay and watch her child grow and bloom. For every grand baby that will never know their grandmother, for every life that ovarian cancer has effected and most of all for Quincy.
I also ask you to share this post far and wide in hopes of bringing awareness to this cruel disease and its horrors of taking mothers all too soon.
With Thanks and gratitude,
A note from Kira- 12:25 PM 9/23/18 Cancer has progressed significantly, current treatment is not working. I have a urinary tract infection, cancerous fluid called ascites which will be drained. I have more cancer in lymph, on liver and now on spleen. This is really bad news bares. I'm not long for this world, please be kind at least.
1:25 PM 9/23/18 ~ Looks like I'm going on Hospice. End of my life, gonna try to make it to Jamaica to say goodbye to my family. I hope I can make it to my sons 8th birthday. This is so surreal, I can't believe I'm actually dying.
August 20th, 2018 Kira has always had a raw honesty when it comes to her fight with this wicked and debilitating ovarian cancer. It has claimed organs, time and her ability to function "regularly". In her vulnerability Kira has remained humble in regards to her financial needs and they are ever present. Kira is in desperate need for emotional support as well as financial support to assist in medication, healthy foods and regular expenses. This is an ongoing but urgent fundraising effort and if you have the time, means and empathy to support if even just a small amount monthly you will be greatly appreciated. If you are unable to donate financial please consider a visit, a phone call, a meal, a playdate with Quincy, bring a plant to contribute to her garden, bodywork, prayers, send a card, donate a gift card ~ with gratitude~ Malia
A note from Kira~ Hey guys I need some love, some visits, anything at all. Everyday I suffer in severe pain and my insurance won’t cover the medication that helps me function. I really need visits, phone calls and general outreach. I was not able to leave my bed yesterday. I don’t know how to survive this suffering all I know is presence helps.
