Her laugh was contagious. Her energy, boundless. Her fierce love for her family, breathtaking. All who met Lina Nessouli came away with the same impression; what a vibrant and beautiful woman. 

Lina Nessouli was born May 20, 1955 in Beirut Lebanon. She moved to the United States with her new husband, Taref, in 1975. Early in their marriage, Lina was diagnosed with essential thrombocythemia, a myeloproliferative disorder that causes the bone marrow to overproduce platelets and for which there is no known cure.  Lina was not given any medication for her condition, nor did she suffer any symptoms.

They raised three children, Maya, Dania and Fouty and lived a charmed life in Atlanta for over two decades.  In that time, Lina received her bachelor’s degree in interior design, became a much loved member of her community and nurtured her children into adulthood.  In March 2007, just two months after her first grandchild was born, Lina was diagnosed with a rare disease called myelofibrosis.
