Isaac
16 years old
Oklahoma
medulloblastoma

As a young man, Isaac wasn’t the tallest basketball player on his team, but he had agility and balance. But in January 2011, Isaac was found to suffer from a brain tumor.

 His parents turned to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, where his treatment included seven brain surgeries, 31 radiation therapy treatments to his brain and spine, and four rounds of chemotherapy. 

Isaac is now finished with treatment and visits St. Jude for regular checkups. His latest set of scans was good. Isaac is sophomore in high school. 

While he’s unable to play competitive sports like he could before treatment, Isaac is still very much a part of his high school basketball team. 

He’s the team manager and participates in practices and drills. Isaac likes video games, traveling and, of course, watching basketball. He’s a huge NBA fan and follows every aspect of the game.
