Our Causes


Jacob and Lucy say in 2010, their 18-month-old son, Izaiah, was struck by a 17-year-old drunk driver, while his grandfather pushed him in a stroller, leaving him partially paralyzed and brain damaged. With medical bills topping $1 million, the young parents say they’re struggling financially, despite being awarded a $55 million judgment — money they will likely never receive.

The parents say at the time, doctors told them Izaiah would not likely survive his injuries. Now, they say he is making progress every day, which they consider a miracle.

The Dr. Phil Foundation is making a $10,000 donation to help Izaiah’s family with their medical expenses moving forward. If you would like to contribute, click here.
