You’ll want the volume up for this one! Happy Transplant Day, Isaac! 💪 #StrongAgainstCancer ・・・
Today is a day Isaac’s family will never forget. It’s transplant day! Thanks to surprise musical guests @Ciara and @DangeRussWilson, his “Happy Transplant Day” song is the best one yet. #Repost @seattlechildrens

Hooray! #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Jose just celebrated his last #chemotherapy treatment at @seattlechildrens and can go back to enjoying what he loves - magic tricks and building Legos. A loving and energetic boy, Jose was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic #leukemia 2 weeks after his 8th birthday. He underwent surgery and 38 months of chemotherapy, losing his hair 3 times. His mom tells us, "For me, the hardest part of chemotherapy was the side effects: seeing him in pain and throwing up, not being able to touch him. This journey has made me a very strong mother for my son. Cancer will never be stronger than us. We can beat that or any other obstacle." Join us in celebrating Jose's final chemotherapy! #childhoodcancer #beatcancer #childhoodcancerawareness #seattlechildrens

UPDATE: It is with a heavy heart that we learned of Vicente's passing today. His mom says, "Vicente left a huge mark on this world. His kindness, love for his family, friends and comics will always be remembered. His courageous 5 year fight against osteosarcoma will remind us that we can all over come great obstacles and to keep moving forward, no matter what. I am so proud of my son. I miss him so much, but he's no longer suffering and is forever young and now my blessed Angel." ❤️ Eighteen-year-old #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Vicente has battled osteosarcoma since 2012 and continues to fight hard every day. Despite enduring numerous rounds of chemotherapy, radiation therapy, proton treatment and surgeries, his mom says he is "such a goofy dude" who stays positive and brings joy to others everywhere he goes. We also hear he is a passionate foodie, and we can't wait to visit his future restaurant one day. We're rooting STRONG for you, Vicente!

After being treated for leukemia since 2015, 4-year-old #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Grayson will finally have his last chemotherapy at @seattlechildrens next week! His mom Sammantha tells us, "Grayson's basically known as the little boy who never cries. He doesn't let you sit with him when it's time to get his port accessed. He doesn't cry when the needle gets put in. He takes the chemo like a boss and rolls his eyes when there's something everyone thinks he can't do. He continually fights like a superhero! So proud of our little man!" Join us in celebrating Grayson's last chemotherapy treatment!

#StrongAgainstCancer VIP Olive Magnolia was diagnosed with a brain tumor that she named “The Monster” when she was 22 months old. After a year of chemotherapy at @seattlechildrens, we are thrilled to say the feisty 4-year-old is doing well! Olive's mom Trista tells us, "We have to keep an eye on the Monster, but Olive feels pretty great! She enjoys singing @taylorswift songs, going to preschool and above all else... eating bacon! She's a fierce little one with an army behind her that wants to see better treatments for kids with cancer." You are awesome, Olive!

After fracturing his leg during a lacrosse game last summer, #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Gavin was diagnosed with leukemia. He's currently 3.5 months into his 3.5 year treatment, which includes chemotherapy and participating in a clinical trial at @seattlechildrens. He'll miss his fifth grade year. We hear that Gavin is quite the joker, loving laughter and all things comedy. His mom Jessica says, "Through this we hope that we can help someone else someday have a much easier time with treatment or, even better, not have to hear the word cancer at all!!" We have the same hope and wish Gavin and his family all the best during his clinical trial.

Today we celebrate #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Mary! Mary is battling brain cancer while studying as a part-time 9th-grader at Garfield High School. She is smart and crafty, loving to read, knit and sew when she's not spending time with her orange tabby cats, brother and sister. Her mom tells us, "Mary misses school so much. She has persevered with bits of school despite great fatigue, weakness and vision problems." We are inspired by Mary's resilience and hope she is able to return to school full-time soon. Join us in sending well wishes to this brave girl and her family!

Today we’re letting #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Isaac’s mom Kelli do the talking. This is her son’s story in her words: “Isaac is a feisty, headstrong superhero. He will be two years old next month and has done things that most people never have to endure in their lifetime. He was diagnosed with high-risk Neuroblastoma in April of 2017 and since then has gone through five rounds of chemotherapy, a resection surgery and is currently finishing his first of two stem cell transplants. Through it all he has shown not only us, but his entire team of oncologists, that he is resilient. The name Isaac means, “he who laughs” and we sure can see that despite the intensity of this treatment protocol his body is fighting. He continues to be joyful despite his circumstances. He loves cars, stacking blocks, and dominos. Whenever he gets to spend time with his older brother, Isaiah, he is the happiest we have ever seen him be. Our little man is absolutely strong against cancer.” We’re rooting for you, Isaac! 💪
