Isla woke up in August 2017 unable to walk, after many horrible treatments, surgery and radiotherapy, Isla was in January 2018 diagnosed as having Difuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) – and there were no further treatment options for her, Isla sadly passed away in July 2018, aged just 7 years old.

Since Isla’s death on the 10th July 2018, we have been contacted many times about fundraising in Isla’s name. We have decided that we would like to focus any fundraising on research into DIPG and childhood cancers and will target all Fundraising for an Isla Smiler Researcher. We need to raise £73,000 to cover this position for 2 years & with your help we can do it! 


Your kind donation will help them to do this and is much appreciated. Please

About DIPG:

DIPG has a 0% survival rate, only 10% of children survive 2 years following their diagnosis and less than 1% survive for 5 years. The average survival is 9 months from diagnosis. These children show such bravery but they shouldn't have to, so this needs to change and with your help maybe we can make a difference for other children in the future.

According to statistics ONE IN TWO of us will be affected at some part of our lives.
