Laulima: Family of infant with spinal muscular atrophy receives generous donation


It was a beautiful day for Nawai’s Family Fun Day fundraiser in Hilo on Saturday.

In April, KHON introduced you to 7-month-old Nawai Irie and her family.

Doctors say Nawai has spinal muscular atrophy and her life expectancy is probably two years.

Nawai is home now in Keaau, along with all of her medical equipment.

Your donations to the family through our Laulima Giving program, allowed KHON to give Nawai’s parents a check for $6,000 during the fundraiser.

KHON thanks you for being a part of caring for this beautiful baby and her family.
