Izzy loves parties, but not pity parties.

If you want to feel sorry for someone, please don't feel sorry for her or our family.

This blog is for family and friends to keep up with Izzy and to document what a tough little girl she really is...

Don't worry - - she will kick cancers butt!

Benefit at W Lounge and Zumba Fundraiser

My friend from eBay put together a great benefit show for Miss Sassy Pants at W Lounge in Salt Lake City. We were so appreciative of those of you who were so willing to donate items for the raffle. Those of you who won prizes were really lucky because there was some awesome stuff. I wanted to give a huge thanks to Victor for putting some much hard work into the event. This is a picture of him below at the event where he was manning the donation table.

Then Saturday my dear friend Lesina held a Zumba fundraiser at One Nightclub/Lounge. Thanks to the owner Aj for letting us shake it there. We had the very talented Alice Lopez, Natalie Montoya, and Miss Sassy Pants very own Auntie Vanessa instruct us through 2 hours of Zumba. It was a lot of fun. I was interviewed by one of the producers of KSL Octavia Palepoi who is Lesina's sister in law. She was so sweet and helped me to feel a little less nervous for the interview. There was clips shown on the 6pm and 10pm news that day. Izzy was able to see her pictures on the 10pm news and thought it was really cool that she was on t.v. Click on the link below to see it. Sina and I go way back to Elementary/Jr. High days. I have some great memories of hanging out with the Palepoi girls playing night games and church ball.


These are the ones who made the funderaiser possible. Minus Octavia, who I wish I had a picture with because she was so awesome to push the story on the news.

The whole group of Sassy Pants supporters!!

Thank you to those of you who were able to come out and show your love and support to both the W Lounge Benefit and also the Zumba fundraiser! I am also always very touched and so amazed at the people who come to these events that don't even know us, I think the reason why is because you expect or hope that your family and friends will be there, but when people show up that you've never met it can really make you feel good.

Much Love,



  1. Just want to say it was so great to meet you guys! You guys are a great family! And for sharing The Hair Story with us, THANK YOU! Izzy looks great! What a sweet little girl! We will be thinking about you guys often!
