Dear JEM Project: Thank You for Your Contribution To Our Goal of Finding a Cure

It’s hard to put into words how grateful we are for the impact The JEM Project’s $250,000 donation to ISF is creating for kids fighting rare pediatric cancer and for our community.  Follow along this week as we share ‘Thank You’ letters from many of those who feel the incredible significance of their gift.

Thank you to Madison’s Dad, Mickey, for sharing is thanks…

Dear JEM Foundation,

I first want to send my sincerest thanks for your generous giving to a cause that is so important to my family.

Madison was to so many people, different things. To me she was the best part of me. She was the person, at seven, that I wish I could be: kind, full of life, and never knew a stranger. She lived life to the fullest……

That was cut short and it is devastating to my family. Through research and grants my family hope and pray that others will not have to go through what we have. Some day families will have better outcomes. Those days are coming sooner with generous gifts to research and we truly appreciate your contribution to our goal of finding a cure.

Thank you again,

MIchael, Madison’s Dad

A Lasting Presence

David Lieberman, ISF MIBG Ambassador

Isabella’s presence is POWERFUL.  In David Lieberman’s case, his nieces went to Calvary with Isabella.  David’s sister-in-law shared Isabella’s story with him, and he has been involved with ISF ever since.  

First it started off that his family participated in the annual ISF 5K every year.  “It felt tremendously good to be a part of something bigger than me.”  As David’s passion grew stronger and stronger, he continued to give back to ISF on a much larger level.  Giving back to ISF is “an opportunity to play a small role in the lives of people that are dealing with pediatric cancer.”

Even though David’s family has not been affected by cancer, he has known people who have battled it during their lifetime.  “It is highly probable that cancer will take someone that I love so I am choosing to be proactive in the fight to find a cure.”

David became an ISF MIBG Ambassador, with a goal to raise $5,000 for ISF.  You can help David reach his goal by participating in his raffle.  For $20, you receive 2 raffle tickets where you have a chance to win great prizes and gift cards.  Winners are announced on November 3rd.  For more details, visit www.JoinDavidFightCancer.com.  

That’s ACTION, David, thank you for representing ISF as a MIBG Ambassador.  Isabella thanks you!

MIBG Ambassador

Levine Children’s Hospital will now be 1 of 20 hospitals (and the first in the region) to have a MIBG Treatment room in the U.S.  The two-room MIBG suite, which will include a lead-lined patient room and an anteroom for parents and caregivers, will provide targeted radiation to pediatric neuroblastoma patients and other rare pediatric cancers with minimal side effects.  As the new MIBG treatment suite continues to progress under construction, we want to ensure that we are preparing for the kids and families who will be entering this program.  New in 2018, we have developed a fundraising program focused on MIBG Therapy – the MIBG Ambassador.  Our goal for 2018 is to have 20 members collectively raising $100,000 for this initiative.  If you are interested in becoming an MIBG Ambassador, please email info@isabellasantosfoundation.org.
