Bikers raise money for girl with cancer

LAWTON, OK (KSWO) - Bikers took part in a poker run Saturday to raise money for an 8-year-old Lawton girl who has cancer. Isabel Hare was diagnosed with stage 4 lung cancer in September 2015. She has had to have her left kidney removed. Tumors were found in eight parts of her body, including her spine. Isabel is confined to a wheelchair because a surgery to remove a tumor from her back left her paralyzed.

She is a bright little girl who loves school and making artwork. When asked how she felt about all the people coming out to help, she says she was happy.

The donations from Saturday's event will go to help pay for Isabel's medical bills and the family's expenses to travel to Oklahoma City for treatments.

Isabel's grandmother Terri Hare says she is astonished at the outpouring of support from the 57 bikers who showed up to participate in the poker run.

"I'm thrilled," said Hare. "There are so many especially from where we work. A lot of people from Goodyear showed up. People that we have never met. People from Oklahoma City. I think there is a couple that came out from Wichita Falls. So it has been good turnout considering a lot of people were worried about the weather."

If you'd like to make a donation to help Isabel fight cancer there is an account setup at Communications Federal Credit Union in Lawton called "Team Isabel".
