B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
Currently Undergoing Treatment
Last July, Isabella complained of a sore throat and had been losing her color. For a little girl who is usually early to rise, her mom knew something was wrong when Isabella slept in. When she awoke, her skin-tone had lost all of its color and it was evident something was wrong. Within minutes after her pediatrician ran a blood test, they received the devastating news that Isabella had leukemia. She was life-flighted to Denver where she was diagnosed with B-Cell Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. After completing her initial rounds of chemotherapy in Denver, Isabella was cleared to return to Montana for treatment.
She currently takes multiple medications twice a day, and travels to Billings, MT weekly for chemotherapy. Her treatment regimen is scheduled to last through 2020. Because Isabella is immunodeficient due to her battle with cancer, she is not able to attend daycare and therefore, her mom is no longer able to work. The loss of income of a parent is one of many challenges that a family faces cancer diagnosis of a child. While the family continues to adjust to their new normal, Isabella continues to be a playful, kind-hearted, strong, and loving four-year old. She loves playing with her sisters and adores all-things Minnie Mouse
