Biography

Isabelle started school at age 5. Within a few month we noticed she had developed blisters on her finger joints and she had become very weak. Walking up the hill to school would take twice as long and she would feel exhausted. We eventually got a diagnosis, 3 months later at Great Ormond Street Hospital, where they told us she had a very rare muscle disease known as juvenile dermatomyositis. So rare in fact that it only affects 3 in 1 million children.
Isabelle has an injection every week in her upper leg, she has constant blood tests and tablets every day to keep the disease controlled. She is due to start blood infusions at GOSH which she'll have once a month. She is incredibly brave and we are all so proud of the way she deals with all of this at such a young age. She doesn't let it stop her and remains a very happy girl.
