Cancer Sucks - Support BellaStrong

Childhood cancer is devastating for everyone involved. My family has been hit with the reality that no one is immune from or favored by the cancer bug. My niece Isabella Tani was recently diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma. It is a rare form of bone cancer that occurs in children up to the age of twenty years old. My sister Victoria, along with the help of her husband and Bella’s father have fortunately been able to put work obligations on hold and has been by Bella’s side for the majority of the treatments she has received. Bella receives chemotherapy treatments at Mott’s Children’s Hospital in Ann Arbor. They have been and will continue to spend most of their time at the hospital but they get to go home for a few days from time to time. Bella has two step sisters that are close to Bellas age and support Bella with love and company.
Bella is an honor roll student at Jackson High School, she plays soccer, and is the biggest Packers fan that you will ever meet. Bella turned 15 on October 4th 2017. She just recently lost her hair because of the chemotherapy that she will be getting for about 38 weeks. Bella is a homebound student for this school year. She may get to go back in the Spring if her treatments go well. She must use a wheelchair or crutches for fear that her bone will break in the area where the cancer was found. Bella is a very unselfish, loving, and happy child who deserves as much support and love this world will offer her.
These treatments have been a constant and unexpected life altering affair. It has been very difficult for Victoria, her Husband Joe and the family to fulfill they’re everyday obligations while caring for a sick child. The constant emotional rollercoaster does not leave many moments for peace and serenity. By donating, you are helping This family with surmounting medical bills. Your donations, big or small, will be helping to give the family peace of mind. My sister and her family deserve the opportunity to concentrate her worries on the health and wellbeing of her child; not the fear of medical bills they cannot pay.
