The Family and Friends of Bella Rinier are uniting to raise funds to help Bella and her family with Bella's Battle against Childhood Cancer

My Name is Isabella but everyone calles me Bella. I am now 5 year old. On October 27th, 2009 after being admitted to Penn State Childrens Hospital the previous day, I was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma Stage 4. This is a form of Childhood cancer found mainly in the Bone Marrow. I went through 6 months of chemotherapy, Major surgery to remove the tumor that was found on my left kidney. In May of 2010 I had my Bone Marrow transplant.

I was doing wonderful till one day mommy and daddy noticed i was walking funny. On February 14th, 2011 my family found out that I had relapsed. This time the doctors found 6 major tumors on my brain.

The doctors told my mommy and daddy that i only had 3-6 months to live. I was placed in ICU to get the pressure off my brain and to start treatment right away.

They Placed me on a Chemotherapy drug that only worked for 6 months. Now at this time I am now under a new experimental treatment that is being conducted at Penn State Childrens Hospital Stem Cell Clinic.

We dont know what the out come is going to be and at this time we are not sure if this experimental treatment is going to work but, I am doing well and thanks to GOD, I only have 2 large Tumors that at this time show up on my MRI scans..
I'm winning this battle one day at a time.

This 2 year battle has drained their family both mentally and financially. Bella is in the battle of her life right now and the mounting medical bills and home bills are a worry we would like to take away from her family. Bella Travels to Hershey Medical Center almost every day of the month except weekends. They have been doing this for a very long time and need our help.

We can't change this disease, but we can change how they fight it!

Thank you all for your donations, support and most importantly prayers. We do believe in miracles and we pray for one each day.

** Isabella Has Relapsed Once again. She is inpatient now as I write this. This time her Cancer has spread to her Spine and Spinal column. Isabella will be starting radiation. which at this time is our only option. They are giving her the radiation to keep her comfortable and to keep her out of pain as they are hoping the radiation will shrink some of the cancer along her spine and relieve pressure.
