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.

I swiped this picture from Facebook. It's been spreading so I didn't think the family would mind.
