Event to benefit 8-year-old girl with bone cancer


A Walmart Heart Convoy is being planned for 10 a.m. July 13 to benefit an 8-year-old girl with bone cancer.

The public is invited to participate in the event for Isabella “Bella” Campbell, which involves a convoy of Walmart trucks driving from Brownstown to Seymour.

Officers with the Brownstown, Crothersville and Seymour police departments and the Indiana State Police along with personnel with the Brownstown and Seymour fire departments and Jackson County Emergency Medical Service also will participate in the convoy.

Campbell was diagnosed with Ewing sarcoma (bone cancer) on Nov. 19, 2021. After completing 13 weeks of chemotherapy, she had to have her right leg amputated April 12.

On April 29, she had to start another round of chemo and is doing great right now, according to a news release from Walmart. Campbell’s goal is to get a prosthetic so she can do gymnastics and dance.

Campbell attends Cornerstone Community Church in Seymour and went to Margaret R. Brown Elementary School in Seymour before her family moved to Scott County in 2021.

The public is being asked to support the Walmart Heart Convoy along its route that will begin at Brownstown Central High School, head south on Elm Street to Spring Street and then right on Poplar Street to Commerce Street (U.S. 50) before heading toward Walmart Supercenter, 1600 E. Tipton St., Seymour.

The Walmart drivers also plan to present Campbell with some gymnastics equipment, including a mat and a balance beam, at the store.
