This is TEAM GIA'S fund to unite in raising money to help in winning her battle against Embryonic Botryoid Rhabdomyosarcoma.

Our tiny love, Gianna has been diagnosed with a rare form of childhood cancer called Embryonic Botryoid Rhabdomyosarcoma. It is a tumor of the vaginal area near her urethra and bladder. Gia has been diagnosed at stage 3. We are currently in the process of seeking a second opinion as our love was just diagnosed on 11/16/2011. We have to find the very best treatment to cure our daughter. Gia just turned 18 months old and is a happy, fun loving, bright blue eyed, intelligent, kind, toddler who just loves Elmo and Winnie the Pooh and playing with her big sister and big brother, dog and cat. She has a fierce spirit and has so much to do in her life and I am certain she will do great things to help this world. We are asking to begin collecting donations in the event that we will need to take drastic measures to save our daughter's life. This could mean traveling, paying for procedures (especially out of state), or anything that it will take to save our baby. There are so many uncertainties with cancer and what I do know is that we need to be prepared for this fight. My biggest hope is to never need to touch this donation fund and in the event that we are so blessed whatever has accumulated in this account in Gia's name will be donated to helping other children of cancer still fighting their battle. Please follow Gia's journey at, password giasmith. Thank you all for your prayers and help.

Love, Prayers & gratitude,

Derek, Erica, Samantha, Derek Jr. & Gianna Smith
