What We Do

We raise money and awareness for rare pediatric cancer research. The Isabella Santos Foundation was created in honor of Isabella Santos who fought Neuroblastoma for over 5 years.

In 2019, ISF made a 5 million dollar commitment to Levine Children's Hospital to build the first rare and solid tumor program. This program will help find cures for children who are effected by rare cancers such as Neuroblastoma, Osteosarcoma, Ewings Sarcoma and more.

IMPACT OF COVID-19 - SPECIFIC NEEDS:

We want to thank those of you who have already donated this month towards our many initiatives before life came to a stop. Over the next several days, we had planned on these events bringing in a significant percentage towards our annual fundraising goal and have been stunned at the turn of events. If you are able to and feel compelled to donate, we would appreciate your support. Now more than ever. Together we can help kids fighting.... beat cancer, grow hair and live their dreams.

Other Ways to Support:

Virtual JERSEY MIKE’S Lunch: Yes we know, Jersey Mike’s Day of Giving was technically canceled. But not for ISF! Let’s show our local Jersey Mike’s franchise owners that we still have their back and support by ordering take out! Invite your co-worker, team or friend and plan on lunch together tomorrow… virtual style! Order for pickup or delivery through the Jersey Mike’s mobile app to make it simple! We are fortunate that ISF will benefit from all donations made by customers through March 31st... donations can be made through the app or at pickup.

Donate Blood: If you are healthy and able, drop into your local OneBlood donor center to help replenish the quickly depleting blood supply in your community.

Interesting Info

Childhood Cancer only receives 4% of Federal Funding for Research, leaving the responsiblity of funding to private and smaller non profit organizations.
To date, The Isabella Santos Foundation has raised over Three Million Dollars to help fund research and help other local charities.
There are over 15 rare pediatric cancer that receive little to no funding because their disease isn't "profitable" to be make drugs for.
