A little girl's wish... #pray4izzy

You know when you're growing up you dream of so many things. Mainly you dream of the future. But there's one little girl who is fighting for hers right now.

Four year old Izabella has cancer. She was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma, a very aggressive childhood cancer in November 2009. She has been fighting it for about half of her little life. It wasn't too long ago her parents had to make the hard decision of whether or not to allow the doctors to preform an amputation of one of her legs. With the hope that it would help her, they allowed it. Recently, sweet Izzy and her family were informed the cancer had returned.

I'm not telling you this so you can feel pity for this family. Instead I'm asking for prayers. That is what they need most of all. This family is not to be pitied...they have had such an amazing strength and continued faith through it all. As stated on their Timmy's Fund page, Izzy was quoted as saying “If I smile, the devil will be mad… So I’m gonna keep smiling!”. If that doesn't show what an amazing little girl this is, I just don't know what else to say.

Isn't she beautiful? 
I swiped this picture from Facebook. It's been spreading so I didn't think the family would mind.
Also Izzy has a wish I want to share with you all. She wants Justin Bieber to come to WV. I know this is a long shot however I'm willing to tweet and share her wish as much as possible. She deserves to have this come true. From what I understand some Fayette County teens started this massive Twitter campaign in hopes that Izzy would have a dream come true.

We can help!
