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
December 27, 2015
Isabella and our family have been enjoying a mellow few days of quiet relaxation. Hope wherever you are, there is joy and warmth in and around you. In recent months, your generous support has made it possible for Isabella to resume both her Speech and Occupational Therapies. In the New Year, we intend to add to that her prescribed Physical Therapy as well. Thank You! In previous years, we've had to either forgo or interrupt Isabella's services due to funding challenges. We're hopeful now as we complete 2015 and approach 2016 to meet her needs in the coming year more fully than ever before.
When we began our fundraising campaign at the end of August it was with an annual goal of the $42,000. It's been a successful quarter with both fundraising and the meaningful care now available.
As you can imagine her needs continue. Anticipating funding of the upcoming quarter we welcome your "end of year" tax deductible contributions in any amount that support Isabella and our goals for her ongoing care. Either way, please know how much your interest, care and kindness nourishes and encourages us all. Blessings for a most fun, fulfilling and flourishing completion of 2015 and for the New Year... Love & Light, The Vahanian Family
