Highland's Sparrow

It is with a broken heart that we are letting you know that Highland's Sparrow, Remi, passed away Thursday, March 10, 2011.  It is comforting to know that Remi was at home and with her family for the last week and not in a hospital.

 Our support of the Robinson family will continue.  We thank Remi for the invaluable lessons she has taught our Highland community over the past six months.

 Donations can be made to the Highland PTO and will be deposited in the Robinson Sparrow Account.  A donation box can be found in the Highland front office.

Highland’s Sparrow News

Remi Robinson is a beauti
ful 2 year old little girl. At 18 months of age, Remi’s parents noticed that she was falling 
down when walking. Remi’s doctor referred her to a neurologist and on January 28th it was discovered that Remi 
had a brain tumor.

The family was referred to Doernbecher Children’s Hospital in Portland for treatment. She underwent surgery to 
remove the tumor that sat between her spine and cerebellum. It was then that they were told that Remi had cancer, 
a brain tumor known as medulloblastoma.

Remi has undergone chemotherapy and radiation, with several serious set backs due to common viruses attacking
her immunosuppressed system. At one point, Remi spent 82 days in the hospital. But, this little fighter has battled 
back against the odds.

Today, Remi is suffering from the effects of infections and radiation. She has many medications to take and will
return to Portland on November 3 for an MRI to check her status. Her battle is far from over. But, for the next 
few weeks, she is happy to be home with her parents and brothers Preston, 12, Ky,4, Jackson, 4, and Bronson, 3 
months.

Sparrow funds will help this family with their ongoing medical bills as well as prescriptions and transportation costs
resulting from many trips to Portland.

The Delgado family will be sponsoring Highland’s Sparrow once again this year.
