Princess Belle's Friends team at last year's CureSearch Walk. | Provided

It’s been almost two years since we lost our sweet Isabelle Jones to brain cancer. She would be 12 years old now, attending Brooks Middle School in Oak Park with all her friends. She was a fifth-grade student at Lincoln Elementary School in Oak Park when she was taken from us. She started at Lincoln as a kindergarten student, and she dearly loved school and her teachers, classmates, and all the staff. Thanks again to everyone there for the compassion and love you showed her.

One of the most important things to Isabelle was the CureSearch Walk. She loved walking and raising money to help find a cure for children fighting pediatric cancer. Her friends walked in her memory last year and raised over $7,500 to help fund research for pediatric cancer patients like Isabelle. They are preparing to walk again this year on Sunday, Sept. 25 at Boomers Stadium in Schaumburg.

We need your help to make this year’s CureSearch Walk a success! Please support the Princess Belle’s Friends team by registering to walk with us or by making a donation. 

On Sept. 10, her friends will be at the Oak Park Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and at 903 S. Oak Park Ave. from 1 to 4 p.m. handing out information, signing up walkers, and accepting donations. You can also go online to register or make a donation at:

For all those who knew her, and those who didn’t, please join us to help all the wonderful and courageous children who are fighting for their lives every day and waiting for a cure. CureSearch fights for the future every parent dreams of and every child deserves.

For more information, you can also call 708-383-3525.
