Waxhaw, NC -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/27/2017 -- Erin Santos, the mother of Isabella Santos and one of the founders of the Isabella Santos Foundation, has recently been named a February FACE of Charlotte by the women's magazine StyleBlueprint. This courageous woman was selected as a FACE of Charlotte because she was able to take the heartbreaking loss of her daughter and turn it into something positive, by creating a foundation for children with cancer, to help other children with the disease.
Mrs. Santos and her husband started the foundation back in 2007 when their daughter Isabella was diagnosed with stage 4 Neuroblastoma. The young girl immediately began treatment to contain the disease, while Mr. and Mrs. Santos researched treatment options. They determined her primary care would be transferred to Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in New York City, a hospital that specializes in neuroblastoma. Although she bravely battled for five years, Isabella succumbed to the disease in 2012.
Over the last decade, the Isabella Santos Foundation has been able to raise over $1.5 million to aid research in the battle against neuroblastoma. Their primary focus is to find a cure for the debilitating disease, which is why they're doing everything they can to speed up the progress that will help find the cure for children everywhere. This children's cancer foundation holds multiple fundraising events throughout the year to not only raise money but to also bring joy to those involved.
