Childhood Cancer: Help Us Make a Wish Come True

Today’s blog post is far from “beachy” or involved with decorating in the least; however it’s extremely important. The topic of cancer is near and dear to our hearts at Sally Lee by the Sea.  Cancer in general, has affected many of our lives and childhood cancer just sucks, quite frankly. Please continue reading and we hope you are inclined to join us in supporting this beautiful wish that’s quickly blossoming into fruition.

Thank you, Elizabeth and Marie

Daniella Collazo

Daniella Collazo is a precious 2 year old girl from Miami Springs, Florida. She was diagnosed with Stage III Neuroblastoma on May 30, 2014, a very aggressive form of Childhood Cancer. Daniella has completed 7 cycles of chemotherapy and multiple surgeries this year. She was recently discharged after undergoing ultra-high dose chemotherapy and a stem cell transplant protocol.

Due to her immunocompromised condition, Daniella must avoid public places, including public playgrounds for up to a year.

Silvia Vanni, founder of Mystic Force Foundation, recently contacted Celebrity Landscaper, Ahmed Hassan (host/co-creator of DIY Network’s Yard Crashers) with a request that he build Daniella a backyard playground oasis that is free from the germs of the general public, where she is safe, and where she and her brother can have fun and enjoy being kids.

Daniella Collazo is ready to play outside under blue skies.

Hassan recently shared on his Facebook page, “Silvia’s request pierced my steel façade,” he continues “Daniella is two years old. She cannot do for this for herself, so I’ll do it for her.  I’m not trying to save the world. I’ve just got to create an outdoor space so that she can play outside like a two year old little girl should be able to do. Today is day two of sitting and writing with tears running down my face. I know what it feels like to be afraid, helpless and overwhelmed. I also know what it feels like to be strong for others and yourself, while standing up for positive change in the world.”

The celebrity has opened up his heart and is diligently moving forward to make Daniella’s life a bit easier by assisting in creating this outdoor living and play space that is conducive to Daniella being about to enjoy a bit more of life. Being able to see the blue of the sky will allow her to heal while building a strong and healthy immune system.

Ahmed Hassan Celebrity Landscaper Creating Outdoor Play Space for Daniella - Child with Cancer

Celebrity Landscaper, Ahmed Hassan, is truly more than a landscaper.

Hassan’s dedicated team continues to grow and get organized as all are deeply committed to making this little girl’s dream come true. “We are doing what we can towards further research and solution based, sustainable development for the project.”

Ahmed, and his designer Duane Draughon of Viz X Design Studios, will be flying to Florida in early March to visit with Daniella, her parents Dania and Jose as well as big brother Daniel. After a plan is drafted and designed the team will return sometime in April to turn this vision into reality.

We have nothing more than dreams and wishes.  But because we believe and because we know so many of you also believe, this project will happen and you’re about to show me just how fast.”

– Ahmed Hassan

With your assistance, wishes really can come true!  If you feel so inclined, please visit Thoughtful.org to donate. Thoughtful.org was selected because more of the funds will go directly towards Daniella’s play space, than using similar sites.
