The Isabelle Hoodie is named in honour of POGO ambassador, Isabelle. Isabelle was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL) when she was three years old. Although prognosis for kids with ALL is typically very good and the survival rate is high, treatment can last up to three years.

Model is wearing size medium.

Checkout the entire story below: 

One morning, Stephanie sent her son off to kindergarten, put her twin boys in daycare and brought her three-year-old daughter, Isabelle, to the hospital for what she thought was likely a urinary tract infection. Little did she know she would be leaving her Northern Ontario town on a plane later that day and would not return home for close to two months.   

Isabelle was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL). Stephanie’s husband, Joel, took a month off work and the three of them stayed in Toronto while their other three boys stayed at home with their grandparents. But when the family could not handle that financially anymore, Joel returned to his job and Stephanie stayed in Toronto to care for Isabelle by herself.

Isabelle is four years old now and in follow-up care. Luckily, most of her care takes place an hour away at the POGO Satellite Clinic at the Northeastern Cancer Centre in Sudbury. This saves Stephanie the gruelling six-hour drive and means the family has more time together.

The POGO Financial Assistance Program helps families pay for unexpected out-of-pocket costs associated with their child’s treatment, including accommodation costs when families need to travel for treatment.
