Tina Rahi passed away after bravely fighting a 21 year battle with cancer.

On October 2, 2019, Tina Rahi passed away after bravely fighting a 21 year battle with cancer.


Her fight began on her husband Ramsey‘s birthday, the day before their five year wedding anniversary, while she was 20 weeks pregnant with their second daughter, Kayla. They received a phone call from their doctor to report to his office immediately. Upon arrival, they were handed a package of x-rays and told to take them directly to Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. There, she was diagnosed with non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and her battle began. Although given the option to terminate the pregnancy in order to fight the cancer more aggressively, Tina was adamant that the pregnancy be saved with no regard to her health. In her words, “It’s not the baby’s fault.“ After undergoing chemotherapy through the remainder of her pregnancy, at 36 weeks, Tina delivered a beautiful, healthy Kayla.


After the birth, Tina received intense rounds of chemotherapy and radiation. A year later, the cancer returned and she underwent a bone marrow transplant and developed multiple complications resulting in numerous hospital stays. Over the span of a 21 year fight, she has endured endless medical treatments and complications, such as frequent bouts of pneumonia, multiple infections, and untold amounts of illnesses due to her weakened immune system, all resulting in multiple, lengthy, and costly hospital stays. Yet she faced them all with bravery and one goal in mind: to live long enough to raise her two beautiful daughters and to work to financially contribute to the overwhelming medical bills.


She did indeed live long enough to see her daughter Kylie receive her nursing degree and to see Kayla reach adulthood, passing away the day after Kayla‘s 21st birthday.
Her final battle began in December, 2018, when the cancer returned in her esophagus, leading to an inability to swallow and eat, resulting in a feeding tube. The deterioration of her health continued, ultimately requiring her to be life-flighted to Allegheny General Hospital in the early morning of October 2, 2019, where she passed away surrounded by her family.


Please consider making a contribution to help Tina's family with expenses for her long fight with cancer. No donation is too small, and Tina's family greatly appreciates the support of their community.
