Eliana Sophia Georges is a living miracle by anyone’s standard. This seven year old has been battling cancer since she was four months old, and in that time has undergone four surgeries and countless tests and procedures. While Eliana’s life with cancer has been like that of a roller coaster with many days spent in grim circumstances, this Warrior Princess as many know her, has defied the odds every time. With her major first milestones of crawling, walking and talking all taking place within the walls of the Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, Eliana is confidently adapting to her new “normal” life of going to school at Washington Elementary and exploring the beaches near the mesa.

Eliana loves to read, draw and is an avid Raiders fan like her dad. She has been attending the Zermeno Dance Academy where she is learning to flamenco dance, and in her down time enjoys being surrounded by her friends and family. It has been said that Eliana’s smile can light up a room, and we have no doubt that this will hold true during the Keiki Paddle.
