Greg’s Daughter’s Fundrasing Program

Sensei Greg Vahanian Support

Gregory Vahanian is one of my first black belt students who followed me from NY to Colorado and was the head instructor at CU Boulder when he went to college there. On Monday, August 24th, 2009, the doctors diagnosed his 2-year-old daughter, Isabella, with leukemia. She has begun chemotherapy treatment and will require in-hospital care for close to a year. Greg and his wife Wendy have been at Isabella’s side 24 hours a day 7 days a week each taking 12 hour shifts. Insurance will not cover everything so I wanted to post this to help raise money for Greg and Wendy in this challenging time they are having. Whether or not you are able to offer financial assistance, I would greatly appreciate your keeping Isabella, big sister, Gabriela, Wendy and Gregory in your loving prayers. If you’d like to have a visual journal and updates on Isabella, please add Gregory Vahanian as a friend in FACEBOOK. (When doing so, please “add a message” mentioning my name, Kancho Ninomiya)

Checks can be made out to:

Please donate your valuable assistance by January 1, 2010



Gregory Vahanian (グレッグ)はニューヨークからコロラドまで私を追いかけて来てくれた最初の黒帯の1人で、ボルダー大学在籍中は同大学内の支部で筆頭指導員を務めてくれました。2009年8月24日、グレッグの次女、Isabella(イザベラ)2歳が白血病との診断を医師より受けました。化学療法が開始され、一年近くの入院が必要とされています。グレッグと妻のWendy (ウエンディー)はそれぞれが12時間交代でイザベラの病室に24時間体制で付き添っています。治療には保険が適用されない部分もありますので、このメッセージを通して広く皆様から募金を募り、大変困難な状況にあるグレッグ夫妻に助けの手を差し伸べたいと思います。金銭的な援助が出来る出来ないに拘わらず、皆様がイザベラ、姉のGabriela(ガブリエラ)、ウエンディー、そしてグレッグの幸福を私と共に祈ってくれることを願ってやみません。もしイザベラの写真や回復の状況を見たいと思われる場合は、FacebookでGregory Vahanianを友達に追加されることをお勧めします。(その際はKancho Ninomiyaの名前をメッセージに加えて下さい)
