A message from the NELSON family,

Three year old Terrapin Nelson was recently diagnosed with cancer in her left kidney. She and her family are well known in Grateful Dead Music & Festival scene. She is the second child of Family is Forever’s Corinne Nelson and Joshua Nelson. She has an amazing older sister, Technic Nelson. Both love each other very much. Their daughters are the entire world for Corinne and Joshua. Terrapin is a strong spirit. Born on the winter solstice of 12/21/13. She and the Nelson Family need the help from our family now more than ever. It’s unbelievable to us that our baby is inflicted with such a terrible illness at such young age. We are angry, confused, sad and completely devastated as a family. We hold on to hope, faith, love and prayer. Terrapin is the sweetest little girl you could ever meet. We do not yet know the complete financial impact of her full treatment, we plan to set up another fundraiser to help with these costs in the future. Baby Terrapin has a huge road ahead of her. We are ready to fight cancer. We know the compass always points to Terrapin. Please if you can donate. Every little bit helps!
