Isabella Santos Foundation, 15 Year Anniversary (2022)
Meet our founder, Isabella Santos, and learn more about the heart behind our mission for pediatric cancer
Because of supporters and donors like you, we are celebrating 15 years of making a difference for kids with rare cancers. In honor of our 15th anniversary and Pediatric Cancer Awareness Month, we hope you will join us in creating more change for kids fighting cancer.
For 15 years our supporters have stood behind us in so many ways. From supporting the Santos family while Isabella was sick, to showing up at every event as the foundation gained momentum. Because of you, we have accomplished many wonderful things in our 15 years, from funding national research trials, building a state-of-the-art treatment facility (MIBG) to bringing one of the nation’s top oncologists to Charlotte to kick off the Isabella Rare & Solid Tumor Program.
Let’s keep the positive impact going, there are so many ways you can join us…
Join our Change the World Fundraising Challenge
Our mission started with a girl. A girl who was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma 15 years ago. A girl who when she said her prayers at night, wasn’t to heal herself, but to heal her friends fighting cancer just like she was. So that is what we continue to do with your help, to create positive change for pediatric cancer. Isabella changed the world, now you can too.

Our flagship event raises crucial funds for the ISF Rare & Solid Tumor Program at Levine Children’s, a global program for kids battling rare cancers.
