Angiels funeral/ Medical exp funds

“14-year-old Angiel Moasa once said in a public service announcement for St. Jude hospital that she had a list of things she hoped to accomplish after beating cancer. One goal was to pursue a career in medicine. "I want to be a doctor because I get to help other kids and adults," she said This was a dream that Angiel had but unfortunately it was not fulfilled as her dreams were cut short as she passed away in December 29th 2015.

The fight began in May 19th 2011 when 9-year old Angiel Maosa woke up screaming in the night from a throbbing ache in her leg. Her mother, Damaris Ondieki knew the explanation of growing pains couldn’t possibly be true. She took her daughter Angiel to see a doctor the next day. The news wasn’t good. An X-ray revealed a bone tumor to her knees. After seeing a specialist, Angiel was eventually referred to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital in Memphis. So instead of a planned summer vacation to visit Kenya, Angiel and her family left Mobile and headed to Tennessee in search of life-saving treatments for her oldest child.  Angiel was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma which is a type of bone cancer. Her treatment included multiple sessions of chemotherapy, radiation, limb salvaging surgery to her bilateral knees to name but a few.

Angiel’s demise leaves family and friends in great sorrow and pain, she was known to many as the most loving, selfless individual who always had a contagious smile on her face. Even though she went through so much pain, she was the one who was quick to comfort many. Her disease did not put her down but instead Angiel learnt to deal with her situation and she fought till the last minute when her cancer metastasized to her brain a few weeks ago. She won this fight and our goal is to not let her down. She would have wanted us to celebrate her life and make sure that her Mum and little brother Marcus were taken care of by friends and family members who cared about her. Our goal is to raise funds to support her funeral arrangements and medical expenses she incurred. Your generous contributions will be highly appreciated and we thank you for your support in advance.
