Meet Isyss

When Isyss was going through chemotherapy and radiation to treat her Leukemia, she was very worried about losing her hair and concerned that it would never grow back. Though she did experience hair loss during her many years of treatment since her diagnosis at age 3, Isyss and her family were happy that it grew back beautifully, as if nothing had happened to her hair. Isyss, who lives in Clayton, is currently in a maintenance phase of her treatment and is back in middle school, where her favorite subject is math. She just turned 13 and celebrated her birthday doing art with her friends using the art supplies she received as a holiday gift from ECF. Her mom Monica believes that when Isyss thinks of ECF she thinks of “hope,” because of the numerous ways ECF supported her family while they were struggling emotionally and financially during her cancer ordeal.
