Isaiah was 3 1/2 years old when he was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Isaiah and his parents drive approximately 6 to 7 hours to the hospital where he receives his treatment. He is such a happy boy even when he is getting those treatments. He loves school and playing Mario on his DS. Isaiah is the fifth child in his family. He has a 15-year-old brother named Michael, a 12-year-old brother named Robert, a 10-year-old brother named Nathan, a 9-year-old sister named Victoria, and a 14-month-old brother named Rider.
