The family and friends of 4 year old Isaiah Mullen are uniting to raise money to help him battle against cancer. Please show your support!

My sweet nephew Isaiah was a typical energetic little boy who loved to run around and play with his 6 year old brother, Romero. Now, he wishes he had those carefree days back. Isaiah was diagnosed with cancer on his 4th birthday.

Just a few days before he turned 4, a very large testicular tumor was discovered on Isaiah. His mother, Susan Thomas, immediately took him to the doctor. Within hours, Isaiah was having surgery to have the tumor removed. Our entire family was shocked to find out that Isaiah has stage 1 embryonal paratesticular rhabdomyosarcoma (muscle cancer). He had his left testicle removed. Because this type of cancer occurs in the muscle, it is very rare and must be treated aggressively with chemotherapy. We found out that this cancer occurs in less than 1 in 500,000 children.

Isaiah has spent the last 4 months enduring grueling weekly chemotherapy sessions that must continue until at least November. It has been hard on my sister, Susan, to see her son so sick. She is a positive, optimistic person who looks forward to Isaiah's recovery.

Susan is a single mother who is struggling financially. She can't afford all of the medical bills to pay for Isaiah's cancer treatments. She has to miss a lot of work to be with Isaiah during his chemotherapy, and she doesn't get paid for the days she doesn't work. Money is so tight that she often doesn't have enough money for food, gas, rent, utilities, or other bills. Medical bills are her biggest worry though.

Any donation that you could make could make would be greatly appreciated.

Please share Isaiah's fundraiser with your family and friends. Thank you!
