Please support Kuila
A fund to support our beautiful and talented friend and student Kuila on her journey to conquer Leukaemia.
Kuila is in the second year of studying for a Bachelor of Performing Arts at PIPA. Three weeks ago she was on stage in her class production of Stage Door. Kuila blew the audience away with her shining talent- singing, dancing and wise-cracking her way through a stellar performance. Just three days later Kuila went to the doctors feeling unwell, she was admitted for tests and has been diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia.
Kuila has amazed us all with her bravery and positivity as she faces this challenge. We are all gathering around her to support her in any way we can, and have set up this page to raise funds to support her treatment and recovery. Please give whatever you can to support this remarkable young woman and her beautiful family at this difficult time.
Kuila's PIPA whanau's involvement (page creator)
Kuila is a treasured member of the PIPA Aiga and this page was established by PIPA staff to support her and her family. We have consulted with Kuila and her family, who have given us permission to set up this page.
Use of funds
The funds raised from this campaign will support Kuila and her family as they embark on this journey together. Funds will be paid directly to Kuila's mother, Ruve Petersen, and will be used for treatment options that become available, including vitamin C infusions and/or non-subsidised treatments. They are also to support the family in their care of Kuila, with transport and other unexpected costs.
Dear supporters of the beautiful Kuila Tuivoavoa and her family, we are so sorry to share that Kuila passed away on 2nd August 2018. Her life was celebrated yesterday, 6th August, in a large and moving service attended by Kuila's friends and family from all over New Zealand and Australia.
Kuila's mother, Ruve Petersen wrote on Facebook: "It is with a heavy heart that we must announce the peaceful passing of our dear girl Kuila Tuivoavoa. A loving daughter, caring sister and a friend to many. She was strong right through to the end, physically and spiritually. Her faith had no boundaries. We would like to thank all her friends and family who supported her during this fight."
Thank you all again for your love and support. Vinaka vinaka vaka levu.
The PIPA whanau
