My Story

Isabella was diagnosed with an Optic Nerve Glioma while in Kindergarten. She has been in treatment since November of 2007. Next month she will complete her clinical trial of low dose chemotherapy at UCSF. After 4 1/2 years on chemotherapy, Isabella remains as bright, spirited and funny as ever. She has endured weekly blood draws, IV treatments, transfusions, neutropenia and several hospital stays for side effects. She loves music, singing, drawing and playing with her little sisters. When she grows up she wants to win "The Voice" and be a fashion designer. She is a fighter and vows to conquer this brain tumor!
