Meet One of Our Heros

Isa Gonzalez
At thirty-six weeks pregnant, baby Isa was not moving as much as mom, Alisa thought she should be. Her mother's intuition hinted that something was not right. After going through several fetal tests, Alisa was informed that Isa had an isolated tumor on her adrenal gland. However, doctors suggested that she wait until Isa was born to see what should be done. Isa was born two weeks prematurely on April 9, but two weeks after, Alisa noticed that Isa's belly was hard, veiny, and distended. At this time, doctors discovered that Isa's tumors metastasized to her liver, diagnosing her with 4S Neuroblastoma. Neuroblastoma most commonly affects young infants and develops from the tissues that form the sympathetic nervous system. In its last stages, Neuroblastoma can spread to the liver, lymph nodes, bone marrow and/or skin. FULL STORY
