Izzy turned five on October 23rd. He was diagnosed last year just after his fourth birthday on November 14th with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). He is currently going in for treatment twice a week due to low counts but hoping to go back to once a month treatments once his counts get back up. Just like most five-year olds, Izzy loves trucks, tractors, construction and ninjas.
