Fundraiser Sunday for Sacred Heart student

By Juan Soto

Family and friends are hosting a fund-raiser for a 7-year-old Bayside girl who is in the fight of her life.

Izzy, a second-grade student at Sacred Heart School, is battling a brain tumor and her family needs to raise donations to pay for medical expenses.

She underwent surgery in August, when doctors discovered the tumor. Unfortunately, doctors were not able to remove the entire tumor.

The people closest to her said she is recovering more and more everyday, but they continue to ask for neighbors and supporters to pray for her.

The fund-raiser is scheduled for Sunday, Nov. 16, from 1-4 p.m., at Tequila Sunrise, 34-37 Bell Blvd.

The girl has to undergo surgery once again so doctors can remove whatever is left of the tumor.

Donations can also be made at the website GoFundMe (gofun‌dme.com/‌eqn78‌g).
