The best thing about Shavini is she did not just give up to get ready to leave her life. She used to wear a smile always, since school days when I got to know her, and even at this point she has that sweet smile on her face. Her life is on our hands now,we are all gathered to help her. So if you could also join us that would definitely be a great help!

Shavini has actively volunteered and fundraised to promote youth education in Sri Lanka with the Educate Lanka Foundation. She has also strived to create equal opportunities and rights to youth to participate in education regardless of age, color, national origin, citizenship status, physical or mental disability, race, religion, creed, gender, ****** orientation, gender identity and/or expression, genetic information, marital status, status with regard to public assistance, veteran status. If she had devoted her time and energy to raise money for a good cause influencing different communities thus making a difference in this world, Ellen, I think she deserves an opportunity here. Thank you.

I met Shavini Fernando as one of my first lecturers when I was completing my diploma back in 2010. She was a helpful teacher for me since then. I am sure everyone is in a big shock to hear her story unexpectedly.  She is blessed to have such a big family, friends, colleagues and neighbours around her especially in this difficult situation.  Shavini is precious to many people out there. This enormous gathering within days reflects how grateful we are to a lady like her.  She was able to stand on her own feet so far and this is the time she needs help.  This world need more people like Shavini. We are not ready to give up on her this early. Don’t you think it’s little early? As we all know, Ellen you are a generous person who lend hand for many people in need. We all believe that Shavini deserves a chance. I assure you that she will stand stronger if you are willing to help her. Please Ellen be kind enough to support Shavini to celebrate her 36th birthday with all of us. Shavini Ma’am we all wish you a speedy recovery and thank you for everything you have done. We love you. Stay strong.

You are really lucky and blessed to be at least being able to move to USA for further medical treatments from a country where lots of heart patients who can be treated just die due to lack of health facilities and poverty. And my prayers are definitely with you in this cause and I'm pretty sure you will get through this!  So Ellen please give her a chance to tell the world how much effort that people put just to live their lives!

She is an angel. Knowing Shavini, she has worked remarkably hard to raise funds for charities such as Educate Lanka that is changing the young generation of Sri Lanka. Being a lecturer by profession, shes passionately helped so many students to succeed in Life. Its a shame people like her get treated unfairly by life.

Look at that positive energy she has.. I don't think he even has tears now.. My heart just melted seeing her. we always love ur show and ur empathy. we know it's a long shot... but we are trying to help and support her as much as we can.

Sometimes we are not given that chance and if this is one of those moments I want you to give her blessings and pray for her!

Dear Ellen, You probably get many requests asking for 'hand-out'; if the reasons and criteria given by the good folks on this thread prove inadequate to convince you to help this worthy person, know that this would only be partially reciprocating the magnanimous deeds Shavini has done for society less privileged. Make us believe, believe in the power of human compassion and American empathy, for someone who epitomises the American dream! We remain the audaciously hopeful...

Shavini is a wonderful person and the best colleague to work with. Quite a joyful person who has done maximum to the tasks entrusted to her. Within a short period after leaving the company only she found out the misery she was going through. In fact I was the first person to be informed and what a pain it had caused me, specially when she told me not to tell any one. I remember we used to tease her for panting after climbing stairs. I feel sinned for doing so now. From what I know of her she is NOT a girl who will give up easily. We all are eagerly counting days to walk together with Shavini again and already working towards it. Hope you will join with us too, for world needs people like Shavini to make it beautiful.

Its great to see Shivani progressing and have not decided to give up despite the circumstances. I have noticed that she had come along way with financial and emotional help from a lot of people. But it makes me think of those people who are suffering from the same disease but they are not privileged as Shivani. It makes me think of those people who have died because they didn't have the financial help like Shivani does right now. I am sure Shivani is very lucky but my heart goes to those people who are less fortunate and does not have the media's or world's attention to help them out.
