Christina was a student of the Tibetan Buddhist Society. The Foundation established in her name is a care and awareness charity that provides non-denominational spiritual and emotional wellbeing support to young people living with or recovering from cancer.
The foundation works to promote a broader recognition of the connection between mental and physical wellbeing and its importance during the healing process
The Foundation was established in 2016 in loving memory of Christina Ghobadi, a young woman whose spiritual clarity and emotional strength marked her battle with the blood cancer leukaemia. Though losing her fight, it was this holistic approach to healing that allowed her to accept treatment and, ultimately, to pass calmly and in peace. The Foundation seeks to ensure that this support is available to all young people in their own battles with cancer.
