Isaac's story

Meet Isaac

Isaac was just four-months-old when he was diagnosed with a large, inoperable brain tumour, devastating his first-time parents.

His proud mum Luarna says her son, who will turn three in May, “hardly ever cried” through more than a year of chemotherapy, which shrunk his tumour by half.

“He’s a beautiful boy. He made the hard times a lot easier to get through.”

Although the tumour – a juvenile pilocytic astrocytoma – has stopped growing, Luarna says Isaac’s future is uncertain.

He is one of about 60 children diagnosed with brain tumours at the Queensland Children’s Hospital each year.
