Bucket list with attitude By GEORGE GARDNER Ongoing treatment: Kavanna Jade, 12, has clocked up nearly 60 days at Starship hospital this year alone. Bucket list: Kavanna Jade is determined to do as many things on her bucket list as she can. A wishing well to help make this happen has been set up at Ostend Medical Centre. KAVANNA Jade has got something to celebrate. She's just about to turn 13 and has a big glow-in-the- dark themed birthday party planned. Kavanna has been in and out of Starship hospital since birth. At five weeks old she was diagnosed with bronchiolitis. At2 1G2 she was diagnosed with asthma. A seizure and turning blue when she was 3 saw Kavanna diagnosed with chronic suppurative lung disease and chronic obstructive asthma. She has a wheeze and a tight chest most days. She finds it difficult to keep up with her peers and often has a grey blue tinge around her lips. Even giggling can exacerbate her condition -- and Kavanna likes to giggle. Her condition can't be cured, it can only be con- trolled. Despite 145 admis- sions to Starship in the past four years, her mum Carolyn Ogg says Kavanna is "a delight every day". "She was born with atti- tude. Even at her worst moments she still has that sparkle. She's a fighter." Kavanna, supported by Auckland Central MP Nikki Kaye, is waiting for news on whether she will get govern- ment funding to become the first New Zealand child to trial a new medication called Zolair. The drug is for auto- immune diseases and although Kavanna's diag- nosis is respiratory, she has the markers of auto-immune disease because of her highly inflamed lungs. While she's waiting, she's working on her bucket list. Kavanna has a raft of things she'd like to achieve, including going on a family holiday to Australia and spending a day in a theme park with teen pop singer Reece Mastin. "She's a real adrenalin junky -- she loves speed and height," Carolyn says. Kavanna wants to learn how to make creme brulee and she wants to meet the men at Westpac helicopter who saved her life. She'd like to record a song, build a massive sandcastle and kayak to Rangitoto. She'd also like to do Relay 4 Life and be an asthma spokesperson. The Jassy Dean Trust is supporting the family and will dedicate a garden to Kavanna at its annual spring garden safari on November 10 and 11. The garden will contain a wishing well where people can donate to help Kavanna achieve her bucket list. Residents who can't wait to help her out can pop a coin in the wishing well's other home at the Ostend Medical Centre. Kavanna also has a Facebook page people can check. It's called Kavanna Jade. Help out: Donate to the Kavanna Jade trust account at ASB Waiheke or online. Account number: 12-3114-0155004-50.
