9-year-old welcomed home to Vacaville after brain cancer treatment

A third-grader at Wakaville received a huge welcome home after many months in Southern California. Isabelle Hill was being treated for brain cancer and her school community wanted to make her return home special. Her family, friends and classmates from Cooper Elementary gathered on Friday night for what the organizers called an artistic exaggeration, baking sale and fundraiser. All donations and proceeds from vendors at the event will go directly to the Hill family to assist with Isabelle’s medical treatments, organizers said. “It’s really amazing,” said Isabelle’s mother, Courtney Hill, at the school’s school event, which attracted dozens of families. “I know Isabelle is very excited to be here.” The last eight months, however, have not been easy for 9-year-old Isabelle and her family. In August 2021, Isabelle was returning home sick from school with headaches. Her mom told KCRA 3. A first trip to the doctor, however, did not lead to relief or answers. “She was up in our bed at about three or four in the morning, just crying uncontrollably and hearing screams in her ears,” recalls Isabelle’s father, James Hill. These headaches caused her parents to become increasingly concerned, so they took Isabelle to the emergency room where doctors did an MRI scan – they found a tumor the size of a wiffle ball, her mom explained. even more devastating news came. “We were told it was cancerous,” Courtney Hill said. “If we waited longer, he could not walk in a week because the volume was so large.” After the tumor removal operation, Isabelle spent almost the entire school year receiving treatment for her cancer in San Diego. , and re-learning how to talk, eat and walk was part of her healing journey. Her parents expressed gratitude for the community support they received along the way, while being inspired by their daughter’s strength. “I was able to keep my mood in good shape,” said Isabelle’s mom. “He’s just kicking his ass.” The family knows that they still have a difficult road ahead of them, but they are convinced that Isabel will succeed. “But, my girl, you are so dirty that you can do anything!” Isabelle will have an MRI at the end of her treatment next Thursday. He will then need to have an MRI every three months for two years. Doctors will consider it “cancer-free” after five years.

A third-grader at Wakaville received a huge welcome home after many months in Southern California. Isabelle Hill was being treated for brain cancer and her school community wanted to make her return home special.

Family, friends and schoolmates from Cooper Elementary gathered on Friday night for what the organizers called an artistic exaggeration, a baking sale and a fundraiser.

All donations and proceeds from the sellers at the event will go directly to the Hill family help with Isabelle’s medical treatmentssaid the organizers.

“It’s really amazing,” Isabelle’s mother, Courtney Hill, said of the school’s gathering of dozens of families. “I know Isabelle is very excited to be here.”

The last eight months, however, have not been easy for 9-year-old Isabelle and her family.

In August 2021, Isabelle was returning home sick from school with headaches, her mom told KCRA 3.

A first trip to the doctor, however, did not lead to relief or answers.

“She was up in our bed at about three or four in the morning, just crying uncontrollably and hearing a ringing in her ears,” recalls Isabelle’s father, James Hill.

These headaches started to worry her parents more and more, so they took Isabelle to the emergency room where the doctors did an MRI scan – finding a tumor the size of a wiffle ball, her mom explained.

Then came even more devastating news.

“We were told it was cancerous,” Courtney Hill said. “If we waited longer, he could not walk in a week because the volume was so large.”

After the tumor removal operation, Isabelle spent almost the entire school year receiving treatment for her cancer in San Diego.

Radiation, chemotherapy and re-learning how to talk, eat and walk were part of her healing journey.

Her parents expressed their gratitude for the community support they received along the way, while being inspired by their daughter’s strength.

“That’s really why I managed to stay in the mood,” said Isabelle’s mom. “It just kicks the butt.”

The family knows that they still have a difficult road ahead of them, but they are sure that Isabel will succeed.

“Yes, my girl, you are so strong that you can do anything!”

Isabelle will have an MRI at the end of her treatment next Thursday. He will then need to have an MRI every three months for two years.

Doctors will consider her “cancer-free” after five years.
