Isabella Reilly a Cancer Survivor – Gives unselfishly – And receives a night to remember forever!

Landing \ Roxbury News

As reported earlier this month in the article “Children Working to Conquer Cancer,” Isabella Reilly was the brains behind the Eisenhower Middle School Toy Drive and Dance for Goryeb Children's Oncology Unit as a way to help other children with cancer.

This unselfish act, caused the students and teachers of Eisenhower Middle School to work together to give Isabella a night that she will remember forever.

While Isabella only thought that she would help decorate the gym and wait for the dance on Friday. Everyone behind the scenes was planning for Limo’s, Professional Hair Stylings, Manicure and Pedicure’s, and special dresses.

Photos from this Major Event:

Let's Rewind to the Beginning of the Story:

Heather Roddy and Shannon RodasIn speaking to Heather Roddy and Shannon Rodas, both teachers at Eisenhower Middle School.

“Isabella Reilly came up with the idea last year in our Civics class. She created the project and did a formal presentation for holding a toy collection drive for the Goryeb Children's Oncology Unit, and then holding a dance in honor of the unit.”

“From there it was our job (the teachers) to help bring the project to light, as a way to create a fun experience for the kids and to make a difference in the community. So over the last year, we worked both with Isabella, the school staff, and the students to make sure her project was successful.”

Fast Forward to Friday:

“After the very successful Toy Drive was complete, everyone wanted to do something special for Isabella, so we teamed together on the idea of the Limo, Hair Styling, Manicure, Pedicure and selecting one of two special dresses that Dressed to the Nines in Morristown donated.”

Isabella Reilly a Night to Remember:

Hopatcong Lake Regional News had a brief opportunity to interview Isabella Reilly as she was surrounded by her friends and was getting into the Limo to start her adventure of a lifetime.

Treasure Chest“When I was little, what I remember about my cancer treatment at Goryeb Children's Oncology Unit, was the Treasure Chest and being able to get a toy after my treatment. I always looked forward to that opportunity, so I just wanted to make sure other children had the same positive experience that I did, so that’s what inspired me to launch the project, as I wanted to give back.”

When asked, “So what do you think about what everyone has done for you?” Isabella quickly replied “I’m so happy that so many people came together to do this for me… This is Outstanding… I just want to give everyone a big hug!”

After the short Limo ride to Santana’s Salon, Isabella chooses to have half-up and half-down and styling for the dance. During her time at the salon, both owners were on-hand to make sure everything was perfect.

Later that night, the dance to honor Goryeb Children's Oncology Unit went off as planned, with Isabella Reilly, the planner, coordinator, and honoree, was the star attraction. Which adds up to a night that she will remember forever, thanks to a “Job well done by Family, Eisenhower Middle School students and teachers.”

Principal and TeachersCredit where Credit is due:

Principal Dominick Miller who knows each student by their first name – Backed the project from the start
