Rina’s inspired message to “Love Life”

Rina Goldberg

Rina learned the hardships of life through first-hand experiences at a very young age. Through the endless support of loved ones and friends, she also learned the value of unconditional love. When the day came that Rina understood what it meant to have mitochondrial disease, she had an important message to share. What she learned and taught the world was truly important in living and loving life, always pushing her illness to the side and seeing the good in each day, Rina loved life. Her heart and spirit beamed a light like no other that shines on in her memory.  —
