Welcome to the Fundraising Page of Isabella Vahanian
Our Little Champion, Isabella, is now celebrating 7 years in remission following 8 months of in-hospital chemotherapy to treat for AML Leukemia. Many of you know Isabella also has Down's Syndrome and had a successful open-heart surgery at 4 1/2 months old. At the beginning of 2016, our Little Champion was hospitalized for viral pneumonia for 12 days.
This year, we've happily been back to the hospital only for follow-up exams which have all gone great. While viruses have kept Isabella home for about 90% of rpast school years, we've seen change since the 2016/2017 school year. On a medically recommended modified school day of about 2-2 1/2 hours per day, Isabella set new attendance records. This year she's nearly doubled her time in school with consistent 3 1/2 to 4 hour days. She’s learning, she’s having fun and thriving in her school experience more than ever.
Our hope is to keep you up-to-date with her life moments, challenges and celebrations. Remember, you can even help by just sharing these posts with your circle of influence.
Please know that your Prayers and sending of Love & Light for Isabella and our family's wellbeing is always treasured and makes a meaningful difference!
Heartfelt Gratitude ~

My Personal Web Log
September 4, 2015
Isabella was able to attend 1 1/2 days of school this week. As she wasn't feeling well, we needed to keep her home the rest of the week. She's been running a fever on and off and we're trusting the Holiday Weekend will allow her an opportunity to recharge and feel better. A significant win; this week we've had a great launch to the Raising Hope Matching Funds Campaign to help Isabella meet her needs! We're well on our way to meeting our initial goal which covers one month of care. Thanks to everyone who has so generously contributed on every level in money, prayer, and getting the word out via social media and more. As Isabella's previous and treasured Occupational Therapist has moved, we're anticipating starting with a new OT soon. Wendy and I met over the phone this week with someone from the school district as we've been advocating for more therapeutic support. While we didn't receive what we'd hoped for, they did offer some additional hours of speech therapy at school which we anticipate will be helpful. Meanwhile, we plan on beginning Speech Therapy again with Isabella's regular therapist as funding has begun coming in. Heartfelt Gratitude.
