Isabel

                                                 Isabel's Story

Isabel was diagnosed at 3 weeks old with Infantile Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia. 

She underwent round after round of chemotherapy treatment on the Piam Brown Ward in Southampton  General Hospital  until February when she was due to go to Bristol Childrens Hospital for a bone marrow transplant. 

At this point, Isabel relapsed. 

She then underwent another course of treatment but the cancer continued to progress through it. 

Without any other chemotherapy options availble, Isabels parents took her to  Sheffield Childrens Hospital for a month where she underwent a clinical trial. 

This also failed to work and Isabel started palliative treatment in May 2015 

Isabel passed away in Gullys Place in Poole Hospital on August 12th 2015 aged 1 year old with both of her parents by her side. 

The main reason this charity was set up is to  be able to financially support  bereaved parents in the months  after their child passes away. At the moment the government provides no support for bereaved parents and many face having to return to work 8 weeks after their childs death 

The second service we would like to  achieve as a charity is  to support oncology parents who face long stays in hospital with their child with food parcels should they need them.

Words can't express how sad I feel writing this, for the loss that Isabels parents have endured.
I only hope that in her memory, this charity and her page can help other children and their parents to conquer this horrible illness once and for all.
In her memory I have added these three songs.
Please think of a brave little girl when you play them.
God Bless you Isabel.
With Love
