The family was able to see a glimpse of our powerful baby Vi, take a look.

We are planning a 3 on 3 BBALL tournament coming soon in August. We will have a large level of community support and Portland Basketball.com will be assisting in making this a well run and enjoyable time.

Love family

We had the good fortune today to meet up with some Trailblazers with real class. Ben, Dez, Jordan and myself (daddy Joe) went out to Dick’s sporting goods for a signing by the players, it was a huge crowd with little chance of getting in to see the players before the time for signing was over, a huge turn out. Dez was able to get their attention with a basketball card and t shirt of the Vina’s - the kids were asked to come meet with the players personally after the signing. I unfortunately was in line buying basketballs to sign, the kids were lucky enough to have the opportunity, but I was not able to get pics of this part of the day. So I had the kids sum up the day on camera. We were leaving and saw the cars, so with a stroke of (Vina) luck we saw them heading toward Tigard so we took chase and Martell Webster was generous enough with his personal time to let us have a photo op. I have to say that, he is a real genuine and amicable fella for having so much popularity. He showed compassion, and was truly authentic with his concern and caring for our cause to help protect children in memory of Vina and her sacrifice.
So here are some pics of the day and the kids and myself were excited to share this opportunity.

Vina would have been just as excited as the cousins were today if she was here in physical form. We know she was here in spiritual form though. Just a side bar, we did perform a U turn under safe conditions. Some drama was perpetrated for the camera.

Then Martell was generous enough to sign a number of our VVV Foundation articles and a basketball. He said he would proudly wear Vina’s dogtag and live strong wrist band. We had an XLARGE VVV TSHIRT that we gave him to wear and he signed it as well. It sounds like the Team is going to sign a jersey for the cause, that is really fantastic! We in the family and her friends know that Basketball is and was her passion. She also excelled in the sport. She was to say the least, an extreme Trailblazer fan and I know the next fundraiser should be a basketball related event. The goal is to have a fun summer 3 on 3 basketball tournament to raise awareness and fundraise as well as simply have a fun family day of athletic competition.
Thanks so much guys, especially Martell for everything along with your support for such a needed resource for our community.

This is a personal moment. I would like to post this gif made by our uncle Jimmy. He worked with an actual picture of Vina and her best friend and cousin, Ben.

We have been researching the Bluemorpho shamanistic journey in Peru to attempt to understand why all of this has happened to us. Take a look at these pics of one person’s journey to the peruvian amazon.

Take a look at this link:

Please take a moment to look into these topics to expand ones notions of the present and now.
