Who are we?
Issabelle's Appeal is a small registered charity that is based in Sheffield, South Yorkshire. We were founded in September 2012 and are operated by a small group of trustees (Volunteers and parents). Our main purpose is to raise funds to grant small wishes for seriously ill children.

Issabelle was just four year old when we was told the devastating news that she has stage 4 Neuroblastoma, this meant that she had a 50/50 chance of survival!
Issabelle started treatment straight away, going to theatre to have Broviac lines fitted (known as wiggleys) and a lumber puncture to see if the cancer was in her bone marrow, which sadly it was.
They started her on intense Chemotherapy which lasted for three days and that was given every ten days, this would cause Issabelle to be extremely poorly which meant spending most of those 10 days in hospital. This went on for 4months.
Issabelle then had to have a large amount of Radiotherapy which meant going every day for two weeks.
