Fundraising to help support the Lictao family
Bay of Plenty
Dianne is a wonderful friend, sister, and a loving daughter. She is an 18 year old student at Kauri Academy taking up Diversional Therapy in the hopes of helping the elderly patients live a quality life.
Dianne has been living in an apartment away from her parents since early this year. On the 16th of July, she had a splitting headache and was fortunate enough to ring the ambulance before collapsing. Dianne was rushed to Auckland City hospital and was found to have suffered massive brain bleed on the back of her head.
Dianne is currently in coma in ICU. She is in a very critical condition, with having the bleed close to the brain stem (the part of the brain that controls the breathing and the heart). After having a series of CT scan, neurosurgeons have decided to perform a very delicate operation on Monday, the 19th of July.
Her parents, Elaine and Roldan Lictao live in Tauranga and will need to be in Auckland for the entire duration of hospitalization. Things are very challenging at the moment but their faith in God is strong and believe the Dianne will get through this.

Hello lovely people.
It has been a year since a debilitating brain aneurysm struck Dianne and changed her life forever.
Dianne is now at home in Tauranga recovering with her family including her sister Darlene who arrived from the Philippines a few months ago. Dianne has complete awareness of what is going around her. She demonstrates different emotions such as happiness and sadness. She goes out for a stroll in her wheelchair on a regular basis especially on a clear sunny weather.
There may be a long, painful road ahead of her but the family has strong faith in our Lord almighty that one day she will get up and walk.
Despite the challenges, sleepless nights, heartaches, the Lictao family is still fighting through your support and prayers. It is amazing how this page has touched a lot of people from all over the world. The outpouring love and support to the family continues. Words are not enough to show everyone how grateful they are.
Lictao family also received a great news today- their family residence visa application has been approved. God is so good!

We will continue to update you of her progress. Once again, thank you and God bless you all.
