CHAITANYA "TANYA" LILA DASI NICHOLSCHAITANYA TANYA LILA DASI NICHOLS Chaitanya "Tanya" Lila Dasi Nichols passed away on August 2, 2014. She was born on February 8, 1989, in Malibu, California, and lived on Kaua`i, Maui, Hawai`i Island, and finally resided for her last eleven years on `Oahu. Tanya accomplished much in her twenty-five years, but still had much to do. Education was important to Tanya. She graduated from La Pietra- Hawaii School for Girls in 2008. She attended Whittier College, California, and was currently an honor student at Hawaii Pacific University. Along with school, she was a patient ambassador for Shire Pharmaceuticals and the Hereditary Angioedema Association (HAEA), speaking at meetings and in hospitals to promote greater awareness of her rare genetic condition. Tanya was kind, compassionate, loving, very smart, and had style. She made friends easily and reached out to all. She touched many lives, and they in turn touched hers. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her and helped to raise her. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Chaitanya Nichols to the U.S. Hereditary Angioedema Association (HAEA) on-line at www.haea.org. HAE is a rare, potentially life threatening inherited disorder with symptoms of severe, painful, and recurring attacks of edema (swelling).
Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of the deceased
