Gabriella is very blessed to have a strong, close, and suppportive family behind her to support her in this journey!
The Tournament Coordinators are her parents, Steve and Krsitin Basaraba, and are available to answer any and all questions you may have.
Everytime I am asked the story behind the reason for this fundraiser, it is difficult to not get teary. The Stollery Children's Hospital has done so much for my family, and the men and women who worked to save my daughters life that horrible day at the end of September, I will never have the right words to properly thank them. There is truly nothing that can explain the sickness you feel in your gut when a medical team pushes you away from the most precious thing in your life to try and save her. For two months, we watched our little girl battle the odds and fight for her life. She has shown us how much of a fighter she is and she is our little heart warrior. Although we are organizing this fundraiser to support the Stollery Children's Hospital Foundation, we will work to help other families affected by this terrible thing called Congenital Heart Disesase in any way that we can. Thank you so much for visiting our website and appreciate any support you could possibly provide us with.
Love, Steve & Kristin Basaraba
