Help Gabriella kick cancer to the curb!

Gabi, who just turned 5 on February 17th, was recently diagnosed with a high grade brain tumor. This tenacious little lady needs our help!

Nick and Fabiana are dropping everything to seek the best treatment for this amazing little girl.  Gabi ijust finished a 6 week course of radiation at Cohen Children's Medical Center in New York. She will soon be participating  in clinical trials-likely farther from home. 

Give what you can; all proceeds will directly benefit Gabi, her little brother Antonio, and her parents Nick and Fabiana during this time.  Gabi's grandparents took their first airplane. trip ever from Brazil to help.  Any additional funds will benefit a brain tumor charity chosen by the Pellicanis. 

You can also follow Gabi in her Facebook group, called "Giving for Gabi."

Please keep Gabi and her family in your thoughts and prayers and share share share!

Please see below for a message from Gabi's family.

Dear family and friends,

It is with heavy hearts that we inform you that our beautiful daughter, granddaughter, sister, cousin and friend has joined the angels in heaven yesterday.

Gabi is the light of our lives and our little star that will shine on us as long as we live.

For those whom may not know, Gabi was diagnosed with an aggressive brain tumor last December. Since then we have been fighting with Gabi against this terrible disease.
These past 10 moths have been the most difficult but also the most precious time of our lives.

During these precious months Gabi had a lot of fun. Gabi went to Disney for the first time, we went on a beautiful family trip to Maine, she had lots of visitors, and as many ice creams that a five year old could wish for.

However, what Gabi valued the most was time spent with family and friends anywhere. She cherished her American and Brazilian families with all her heart. So in her last hours she was in her beautiful home surrounded but those she loved the most.

I know Gabi left an impression on each and everyone of you. She will always be a powerful force no matter where she is.

We love you forever Gabi.

Mama, Papa and Antonio
