Isabella was born with cystic fibrosis.
Her parents found out at 27 weeks pregnant that their daughter would be born with this illness.
In 2003 Isabella made her entrance into the world undergoing 12 hours of surgery to remove 2/3 of her short bowel. But Isabella proved to be a fighter and two days later her mother held her for the first time.
Isabella spent the first year of her life in Starship Hospital, getting her to a point that her family could care for her at home.
Isabella is always at high risk of becoming sick, which can be very isolating for her and her family.
Isabella has a huge heart and makes the most out of every situation. Isabella’s biggest supporters are her Mum, Alex, her sisters Maggie and Harriet, and her dad, John.
