The Isabella Santos Foundation (ISF) is dedicated to improving rare pediatric cancer treatment options in an effort to increase survival rates of kids with cancer so they can live dreams.
In 2009, ISF was established through Isabella’s parents to raise awareness and research funds for Neuroblastoma and received it’s 501(c)(3) status in 2010. At the time, Isabella’s parents were in hopes that ISF could help fund research projects potentially to save Isabella’s life. Although Isabella is no longer with us, we hope another child can be saved and will continue to raise money and awareness for the awful disease that stole her life.
“Erin Santos and the Isabella Santos Foundation have forever changed treatment of neuroblastoma in Charlotte. But they’re not content to stop there.” –The Charlotte Observer Editorial Board, 2018
Through Isabella’s legacy, we work to help impact other kids fighting cancer in her name. ISF has donated over $3.5 Million to date to expand the scope of pediatric cancer research and treatment, and to fill various needs surrounding childhood cancers. Learn more about where ISF funds have gone to and the impact on pediatric cancer research.
We are grateful for our supporters near and far. With every year out from Isabella’s life, less of our supporters knew her. But you still believe in us and support kids fighting cancer in her honor. From financial donations of any amount to attending an ISF event. From fundraising with Isabella’s Run Team to becoming an MIBG ambassador. From simply sharing our social media content to telling your neighbor about Isabella or ISF. It all matters… every single bit of it brings awareness and inspires change.
