St. Jude national 
charity code #10560

In June 2012, Izarah was found to suffer from acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common form of childhood cancer. Her parents, Nohelia and Isaac, turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital for her treatment, which includes two-and-a-half years of chemotherapy.

Isaac is a Chief Warrant Officer 3 in the United States Army, where he is a Black Hawk instructor pilot. Knowing that members of the U.S. military help support St. Jude through the Combined Federal Campaign makes him proud. 

“It’s like family helping family,” Isaac said. “For the past 15 years, the U.S. Army has been part of my family. I’m honored to be a member of this great family, and very thankful for their donations to St. Jude.”

Nohelia admits it was difficult to step into St. Jude for the first time. “Seeing so many sick children was very heartbreaking,” she said. “But after a few hours, you see what the hospital is really all about. It’s a magical place full of happiness.”

Treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since it opened 50 years ago. 

“St. Jude is more than a hospital where my daughter receives specialized cancer treatment,” Isaac said. “We have shared the worst moments of our lives and also the best ones. St. Jude is a place where miracles happen every day.”

Izarah is responding well to treatment and her cancer is in remission. She’s a creative little girl who likes to paint and play dress-up. She’s the apple of her parents’ eyes. “St. Jude is and always will be part of our family,” said Isaac.

You can help support the care for patients such as Izarah and the research that could save children just like her by giving through the Community Health Charities of America (CHCA) or the Combined Federal Campaign (CFC) programs.

By designating St. Jude as your charity of choice, you will ensure that St. Jude has the necessary funds to continue its lifesaving mission of finding cures and saving children and giving hope to families in their darkest hour.
