Help Isabel

I found this site via Sweetney this morning, uggh.

Here's the info from the site:

I'm writing to you because of my friend Paulette and her daughter Isabel. I met Paulette on a message board a few months before my son was born. Despite many people saying otherwise, my online friend quickly became a real and true friend supporting me before and after becoming a mama. I am doing my best to help support her now.

What started out as Isabel’s flu-like symptoms last week quickly became every parents worst nightmare.

On September 3, doctors announced a preliminary diagnosis of Leukemia. Further tests are being done to determine if in fact Isabel is suffering from Leukemia, or worse, Severe Aplastic Anemia. Both are devastating diseases of the blood and bone marrow. And either way, she's going to need a bone marrow transplant. Her mother, father and brother have not left her side. Her diagnosis requires repeated testing and the search is currently on for a matching bone marrow donor.

Isabel and her parents can use all the help they can get right now. As you can imagine, their world has been turned upside down.

The site they set up is just getting going, and looks like it will be featuring auctions and stuff for sale as well as general updates.

Please do what you can for this family, if you can't donate, prayers will work too, I am sure.

I just can't even imagine what this feels like. Isabel and Isabel's mom,dad and brother, I'm praying for you guys and will be waiting for any news you choose to give us.
