My Love and Thoughts go out to Tom and Family during this time. I can only imagine the strength and fortitude it would have taken in daily life but whenever I saw you Rina you were bright, friendly and smiling, always up for a chat and never letting your condition define you. Your beautiful energy and legacy of community, kindness, family and strength will go on through those who knew you. You will be so missed Rina Xx

Thank you Rina for your willingness to share your breast cancer experience in an effort to help others affected by the disease and create a greater awareness of what it meant to live with metastatic disease. I enjoyed our conversations over the years, the BCNA podcast, photo opportunities and even recently as a few weeks ago you were still wanting to help others in a very authentic way. My heartfelt condolences to Tom and your children all of whom you were intent on creating beautiful memories for. Farewell Rina x.

I only knew Rina for a short time at Cornell, but she was always a bright ray of sunshine bringing smiles to everyone wherever she showed hers. My heart goes out to her family during this time. I was blessed to have her as a friend.
