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 8, 2016
Well, earlier this school year, Isabella set a personal best attendance of 22 consecutive days of school. The combination of doctor recommended modified school days where she's in class just a couple of hours per day plus a significantly smaller group of kids in her class seems to be supporting her greater wellbeing. There have been some cold viruses but they've been much less severe and her recovery time has been much quicker then previous years. Isabella's speech therapist, Leeya, continues to come to our home which is wonderful as our girl begins to articulate her words more clearly in support of getting her needs met. Step by step. Her innocence and great sweetness of spirit continues to delight and inspire us all. Happy Holidays, Everyone!!! Blessings, All. ~ The Vahanian Family
