Born on October 31, 2009, Nelina was your typical 4-year-old girl. She loved the outdoors, swimming, jumping in puddles and running through the sprinkler on a hot summer day.  All that changed on July 25, 2014 when she was diagnosed with a rare form of brain cancer, DIPG (Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma).

Her journey was one of hope and now, her legacy.
