New home built for Fergus Falls boy with cancer

Posted: Updated:

We've all heard stories about when tragedy strikes, small town communities come together. That's what is playing out in Fergus Falls, where a family who's little boy diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer, didn't have the immune system to live in their home.

Our story ends where it begins in this brand new 2400 square foot four bedroom, 3 bath home but the story revolves around the same four year old boy overcoming obstacles, many of us could not imagine. "Isaiah was diagnosed with neuroblastoma cancer," says Christine Lawson, Isaiah's mother. Rewind three months ago, when the new home was just a foundation, but it was thanks to the community and prayers,they wrote here on the ground that a new home would be built that was suitable for Isaiah. "Since Isaiah's immune system was wiped out and reset,we decided best to build new home," says Lawson.

Because their old place had carpet, some mildew, obstacles that others could live but not the four year old. "Community of Fergus heard about it and said they would do anything they could to make it happen." Fast forward to today and the community did what they said "It was exciting. It gave us a sense of relief," says Lawson. Because here we are where our story began, in a house that includes ductless ventilation, an osmosis water filtration system and smiles and love that this family needs.

17 contractors and volunteers helped build the new home. and in March, Isaiah will visit the hospital for a doctors appointment-- that's then they hope his tests will come up cancer free.
