Izzy’s Infantry, based in Bridgewater, was founded in 2016 to honor Isabel “Izzy Warrior Princess” Rita’s battle against a spinal cord tumor.

Rita was just 1 year old when she underwent a 10-hour spinal cord biopsy and began a 14-month long chemotherapy treatment.

Rita’s parents began the organization to help ensure that no child will have to endure what their daughter went through.

Rita is now 3 years old, and continues her fight to walk, run and play, after the surgery, tumor and chemotherapy left her with physical delays.

The organization’s goal is to fund research to lead to better treatment options and a cure for childhood cancer; fund programs and research that provide spinal cord injury rehabilitation for children; and help improve the quality of life for children in treatment and their families.
