Isaac Martin Long Fundraiser Pancake Breakfast

Isaac Martin Long Fundraiser Pancake Breakfast,  February 11, 2012 8:00 a.m. - 11:00 a.m. at the Adel Methodist Church.

Isaac Martin Long, or "Ike" as he likes to be called, is a 3 ½ year old rambunctious loving twin that has been diagnosed with a chronic lung disease, that may require a lung transplant.

He has a long list of other related complications that have left dozens of doctors perplexed, and unsure how to treat his situation.

It is Ike’s fighting spirit and determination that keeps the Longs hopeful that with each new doctor, there is new information, that will assist them in improving the life, and health of their little boy.

If you are unable to attend, please go to Isaac’s profile under community at, to make an online donation.
