Please take a moment to learn about Elara:
Elara Rae Isagawa, born April 24th, 2018, is the apple of her family’s eye. From the day she was born, people who lay eyes on her routinely have commented on how amazing she is; there is just something about Elara. To her parents, Nico and Jessica Isagawa, there is no blessing that could compare with this small angel. Elara also has an incredible bond with her grandparents, Candace and Mike Chisholm. On Christmas Eve in the pediatric ward of KGH, the 4 of them were present when the stunning, heartbreaking news was given: little Elara has a tumor the size of an orange near her tailbone. The family was devastated to say the least. Elara was immediately set on a path to BC Children’s hospital, and there wasn’t even a question that her family would do anything to get her the best treatment possible. The ups and downs have been astounding; from the 7-hour surgery (the longest day of her family’s lives) removing the tumor, to finding out the tumor was, in fact, cancerous and to brace and adapt for multi-round chemotherapy treatment, Elara has been the bravest of them all. She still has that amazing glow about her, and even with all the pokes and prods, Elara is the light that keeps everyone from the darkness of fear and doubt. Her family will stay down in Vancouver until the treatment is done, and they all dream of the day all can return home to Kelowna announcing Elara is cured.
The entire family, who love being from Kelowna, are so grateful for the community coming together for them in their time of great need. Everyone there is Elara’s extended family.
