Izzy's Angels

The day after Christmas, 13-year-old Isabel Kirby woke up in her bed, unable to move her legs. Her family rushed her to the hospital Dec. 26. After testing, the Cloverleaf Middle School seventh-grader was diagnosed with transverse myelitis, an inflammation of the spinal cord that has caused her to be paralyzed from the waist down. She has been undergoing treatment and has many weeks or possibly months of rehab in front of her.  She has an older brother and twin sister at home. We would like to help her parents cover out-of-pocket medical expenses they are incurring.  At this point, the family will, at minimum, have to pay 2019 and 2020 deductibles and out-of-pocket maximums, plus daily travel to and from the hospital. They are overwhelmed by the sudden impact on their family, and grateful for any support we can give.
