In Honor of Scarlett Ornelas and Izzy Woodward

Meet Scarlett

Scarlett is three years old and battling stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Scarlett was diagnosed last year on November 27,2017.
 

So far she has completed 6 rounds of chemotherapy and two rounds of immune therapy before her surgery to remove the main tumor on her abdominal wall. July was her first bone marrow transplant and in August she completed her second. She received high dose of chemotherapy days before each transplant.

 

Because of the high doses of chemo she received she now has TMA, which is a condition that effects her kidneys. She just finished radiation treatments and is now going through immune therapy.  Scarlett is such a brave little fighter and is always so happy.

 

Meet Izzy

Izzy is four years old and battling stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Izzy was diagnosed on April 13, 2018 after 2 months of misdiagnosis. She only had the cancer in the bone marrow of her legs and some in the spine.

 

Since then, she has gone through 7 rounds of chemo, and 2 stem cell transparent. She since has been struggling to overcome stem cell transplants side effects including TMA.

 

She had to be intubated for over a week because of lung and kidney issues and is currently still on dialysis. She is such a fighter and continues to inspire everyone with her amazing smile. She is officially NED but still has the rest of her treatment protocol to finish.

because

emery inspired a rebellion

She was small but she was fierce.

Emery was only 2 years old when she was diagnosed with cancer, not just cancer but Stage 4 Neuroblastoma with the odds stacked against her from day one. 


She fought more bravely than any child ever should, but the available treatments failed her. 


Now we fight back. This foundation was created to save and support kids with Neuroblastoma - in memory of Emery. 


We must change this.
