Join me and the Isaiah 71 Strong team to Walk and Play for CHLA kids!
Since my son’s severe aplstic anaemia diagnosis (SAA), research into aplastic anaemia has become something close to our Ellender/Lord family's hearts.
Isaiah began immunosuppressive therapy in March 2018 then spent the next six months in semi-isolation, at home, with me and slowly over many months his bone marrow began to recover. Isaiah returned to school in September 2018, he returned to ice hockey in November 2018 and he went snowboarding for the first time since his diagnosis in February 2019. Whilst he is doing well, the journey ahead is still long and uncertain with the hope being he can get off medication and his blood numbers hold. If not, he will require a bone marrow transplant.
CHLA told us at the very outset “We Got This” and that has proven to be true. We hope you can help us raise vital funds so that CHLA’s haematology department can continue their research into aplastic anaemia and allied bone marrow failure diseases and in doing so improve treatments and treatment outcomes for Isaiah and children like him.
Jane (on behalf of David, Jude and Isaiah)
