I am Olivia's mom, or as she calls me "Ema". I am raising funds to make it possible for me to stay with her at her bedside while we fight this battle we have been presented.  No one wants to have to chose between being by your child's side day in/day out vs. continuing to try and function in the working world.  Olivia is our first born - and a shining beam of sunshine. She is a protector of others, caring and loving to all those who surround her.  Help us keep her light shining!!

The money will be used to ensure we can continue to provide for her, her brothers and our home as we charge ahead on this journey to beat this cancer. 

As a parent - you can imagine the devastation in our world right now as we are trying to navigate covering all the expenses for her treatment. 

I was reluctant to put this together - but am honestly very desperate to be able to care for our daughter that I am prepared to ask for help. 

Love & Light from the Malka Family

Hello Team,

It has taken me several days to process what we had known and feared to be the outcome of our brave child's battle.

Friday evening Olivia passed peacefully with her father, great aunt and myself by her side. She was so gracious in her departure waiting for each of us to be distracted for a moment to take her final breath. No fanfare - just a sweet step out and on her own terms.

Her service will be held on Sunday 1/29/17 at 12:30 pm at Mount Sinai in Simi Valley, CA. In lieu of flowers - please make a donation in her honor to childhood lymphoma research or Chailifeline.org

It has been a long road for O to travel "home". We are all at ease to know she rests peacefully in G-ds hands. She is no longer in pain and can run free.

Without the support of all of you and our family here on the front lines - I'm not quite sure how we would have made it through. Each and every gift made here contributed greatly to giving me peace of mind to cover finances while we battled this awful disease. Your support allowed me to spend as much time humanely possible with O and her brothers which is priceless.

Rest In Peace ✌ my sweet angel Olivia.
Eternally grateful to my Team Ollie Oxen,
Kristin

Webcast of the service will be on their site, follow the link.. password is malka2002

Hello Team,

The past several days O has slept more hours than not - and seems to be comfortable from what I can tell. She has had fevers spike as well the last week - and the team cannot seem to get on top of these fevers with the antibiotics they have selected.

O's breathing last night began to be irregular and she was difficult to rouse. Her father and I came in the middle of the night to try and wake her but she could merely smile, kiss and open her eyes with much struggle.

She also had some vomiting which surprised us all - and with how weak she is - she had trouble to get it out.

Doing everything I can to ensure her comfort. Thank you all for your continued support and prayer for our girl. We appreciate every ounce of love sent our way.

With Gratitude,
Kristin

Tomorrow is a big day, we will finally have O's Make A Wish to meet Harry Styles from One Direction!! It will be via face time as he's in the U.K. already for the holidays but - we are thrilled for her all the same!!

I am also excited to share that my amazing employer has agreed to grant me a unpaid hardship leave to be with O. While balancing work and Os care has been hard over the last 6 weeks - you can imagine the recent news as of last week has had me in a tailspin. Time to re-center and be back by her side daily as we charge through expecting an extraordinary miracle to happen for HER.

My mom is also back on deck to assist me with filling the gaps of overnights and when I am needed to tend to the boys. Sadly we both have this experience from before - but I'm confident we will give this all we have.

I am so grateful that our family has had each and every persons support both her and on our FB page. #teamollieoxen Continues the FIGHT! Pray for a miracle for our girl!!

With gratitude,
Kristin

The rollercoaster of emotions are incredible.

We met with the team today, 3 o'clock.
The drive there was surreal. Haim and I traveled through all of what was to come. I knew the news would be difficult. It's only so much O could take.

We had some time before the docs were ready for us -
and O was alert and interacting with us both. Smiles, giggles, hugs. Stood with OT help. Dad held her in his
arms for a bed weight reset. Mamas tears.

We were called to meet and before a thing was said - I knew. We have put up a tremendous fight.. her body isn't cooperating. It is fatigued. She's mentally SO there. This is so hard.

Docs say we have reached further chemo as being futile. Stopping chemo means we surrender to cancer. We admit we are no longer in control of this disease.

Painful. Heartbreaking.

We are in a position to make her as comfortable as we can.

It hurts. It is all so surreal. Bring on a MIRACLE. We have limited time.
Xoxo,
Kristin

Hi Olivia and Kristin. I'm your cousin in Dallas. We're sending love and prayers. I do have several questions. 1) What type of lung cancer is this exactly? 2) When were you diagnosed? 3) What chemo options are being offered? 4) At which hospital are you?
