An Update on Imaqtz from her Daughter Post Reply with Quote Edit/Delete Post Report Post to a Moderator        IP Information Go to the top of this page

I just received this update from Imaqtz's daughter.

For those who do not know Imaqtz, she was around when the site first opened and was an avid poster, roleplayer, fic reader and writer, and huge Condor fan.

Hi Katse,

I'm sending you this message about a month or two late, and apologizing for not having gotten back to you sooner with information about my mum Tina.

Fact is, I've been struggling to find the right way to sum up all of the life changing events that have taken place over the last two years and in turn changed my mother permanently from the woman you all knew to the woman she is now.

Mum suffered a severe sub-arachnoid brain hemorrhage in 2008, followed by anywhere between 6-9 strokes in the weeks after her initial brain surgery. Amazingly however, she survived all of this and now resides at St Basil's nursing home in Lakemba, Sydney. She will never be able to walk again, and the doctors also said we'd have little luck with her speech, but she continues to surprise her speech pathologists everyday with her incredible progress. Despite these two vital qualities, she is FULLY RESPONSIVE, AWARE and most importantly has retained her sense of humour and enigmatic personality. She can also read so feel free to send letters!!

Mum would talk constantly about all of her Gatch friends back in the day and I knew how much you all meant to her (especially during such trying times of her life). I loved reading (and re-reading!) some of her old fanfic and the gifts we'd receive from her friends were amazing (i'll never forget the drawing we were sent from Eva - stunning!).

I hope you can accept my apology and understand why it's been difficult to explain without much painful thought. I also work three jobs now, so I barely get time to do much but sleep, eat and pay rent (ha!).

Feel free to contact me about further information, and please pass on the message (possibly in a post?) so that all of her other friends understand why she's been missing in action for so long.

My email is ezancan@ymail.com - you're all welcome to email. And I check my email more regularly Smile

Era Zancanaro
(Mini-Immi)


I urge all Gatchamaniacs, new and old, to write this amazing woman and Gatch fan--let's make sure she has so much mail to read they have to deliver it in canvas bags!

Only a couple of weeks ago, SJ and I were wondering what had happened to Imi!!

Sounds like she's had a dreadful time - but it's great to hear that she's bouncing back.

Wow, what an amazing and strong woman to survive and recover as much as she has. She sounds like a very special person. I wish she and her family all the best in the days to come.

My best wishes to Imaqtz, and I'm glad to hear she's doing so well!

Era Zancanaro, it can be so hard to be where you are. My best wishes are with you too, and I'm glad your mother has someone like you to care for her. And please, don't forget to take care of yourself!

I'm so sorry to hear about this, but glad to know that Imi's wonderful personality and strong spirit have survived. Lots of love to you, Imi! Huggles

I am sorry to hear this news. I know through the years I have wondered where Imi got to. She was the first person I conversed with when I joined the board.

I am glad to hear even after all these horrid events her fun personality and strong spirit remain intact.

Her daughter's email is in the message--I'd recommend emailing her and getting a mailing address--I completely forgot to ask! *slaps forehead* I was so shocked by the news it slipped my mind. Whoever receives it first, let the others know--Imi needs us and I, for one, am not going to let her down!

Oh my!! My poor IMI .. but what a survivor!!

I will, for sure, write a message to my crazy little Condor Gal!! Thank you so much for sharing this ... I wonder if buffy and Yuki know?! I'll direct them here ...

Wow... I was only reading through some of her wild little PMs to me on Friday and wondering where my Imi was...

Buffy and Yuki are both on Facebook - we can copy and paste the message in a message to them as well.

Berg - I'll recommend them both to you as friends.

Imaqtz's time here predates me but I've long been aware of her reputation as a uniquely charismatic and creative person and her legacy that lives on here in her many posts. This is very sad news but also inspiring as she is clearly a Condor through-and-through in the face of adversity.

My best wishes to Imi and to her daughter.

Thanks, Maddy. Got the sad news, still trying to make peace with it.

And thanks Katse for posting it so that we know. Our prayers and best wishes are with her and her family.

Folks. Imi love reading our fanfics, Mini-Imi said Imi is now living in St. Basil's Nursing Home. If we can confirm the addy there with Mini-Imi, maybe you can all send her some fanfics so that she can read them?

Anyhow, gotta go now. TC every1...

I too have never had the pleasure to converse personally with such a strong woman, both in body, soul, and character. Right now, I'm feeling so fortunate to come to know her story through her likewise strong and loving daughter. I wish them both all the best life can offer. Love isn't missing for sure, as it's clear how such a sentiment has given them both the strength to keep on going, even through the toughest of adversities. Huggles

What an awful thing to have happened to her, and her family. Imi is an unforgettable person, who contributed hugely to the open and encouraging atmosphere of this forum. I'm not sure I've ever met anyone so focussed on making everyone else feel so confident in themselves, she has such warmth and generosity of spirit.

Anyway, I think this link is to the nursing home. I imagine there's more to the address than this.

Imi was very active here when I first joined, I think we wondered for ages why she disappeared...

Thank you for letting us all know what happened to Imi, how aweful to have gone through all that in the last 2yrs. I can understand why her daughter couldn't say anything sooner, her mum comes first.

She has an amazing fighting spirit...

Edit; Lakemba is in Sydney.... about 45mins drive from me.

Thank you Katse for giving us the information. I had wondered why she had disappeared.


After the initial pounce by her, she was a wonderful person to converse with here... will get something to her soon. Please let us know when her address has been confirmed.
