Izzy and cancer

Izzy was ten. She spent fully half of her young life battling cancer, and once we really thought she'd beaten it. But cancer is stubborn, and insidious, and it really, really likes killing people.

There are some fund raisers going on for the family, and they really need it. (She has two younger brothers.) Overall there's a Prayers for Izzy FB group here:

And also a Paypal fund raising account:

And some creative people selling stuff to help:

And that's about all I have to say, because ... what can you say? Nothing covers this. There's no inspirational comment or encouraging word you can give anyone in the face of this. Honestly, I have trouble even looking at those last few photos.

I have two daughters of my own.

So sad when a life is over before it's even begun. RIP Izzy.

I saw the posts you shared about this on Facebook and it's so sad :( Poor little girl and her poor family. I can't believe they not only had to suffer through their child being so sick and passing away but also are suffering financially from it. That just is so senseless. :(

Agreed, it's horribly sad.
