Kahuena was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer when he was 4 years old. He won the battle two times but the cancer has come back and is in his lung and liver for round 3. He is now 6 and will be 7 in May. Living up to his last name, he is a true warrior. His family has had to move from Maui to Oahu, then from Maui to Reno, to be closer to the pediatric oncologists in Oakland. They have exhausted all options and at this point unless there is a miracle he is terminal and won't be here much longer.
His family wanted to celebrate Christmas early so Maleree went shopping for Kahuena in time for the family’s heaven-is-beautiful themed celebration complete with angel wings and halos.
Kahuena passed on December 11, 2017.
