Isabella Perez was only 11 years old when she passed away.

The young girl was diagnosed with cancer when she was four. She was undergoing treatment at the time we first introduced you to her back in June. She and her family were one of the families we profiled during our fans for friends drive.

Isabella caught the flu last week, was hospitalized, and passed away. The family was in need of help to pay for funeral services. Many of you donated to the Perez family. Christina, Isabella's mother says they've managed to gather about half of what they need....she says it's amazing to think that strangers were so eager to help.

If you'd like to do so, an account has been set up at Kleberg National Bank under the name "Isabella Perez."
