R.I.P. to THON Child Bella Rinier

It is with a heavy heart that I write of the passing of Isabella Rinier — or as many of the THON family came to know her — Bella. Bella was five-years-old, battling neuroblastoma for the fourth time.

Shannon Rinier, Bella’s mother, posted this statement on the “Isabella’s Journey” Facebook:

My dearest Bella, you have Taught so many of us what it is like to be strong, to be a fighter, to never give up but most of all to keep loving and smiling no matter what. 

You have touched so many lives and I am So blessed to have been choosen by GOD to be your momma.. 

You are Pain free now and with Jesus.. You will always be my baby girl.. 

Bella, I love you so much!!



You will never be forgotten Bella. We will never stop dancing for you.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Rinier family.

For The Kids, For The Cure.
