Emily "Emma" Whitehead :: My Journey Fighting Leukemia » My journey fighting childhood cancer.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I am thankful today to still have Emily here with us. I think about the families we know that have lost members to cancer and it makes me burn inside to bring awareness and a cure for all.

I am very thankful for having coworkers across five states that have donated to me vacation days, so I could be at all of Emily’s appointments. Emily has asked why other kids have to be alone while they fight cancer. I am also thankful for the family,friends, and THON members that constantly support us and help when we need it most. We have been blessed with some great doctors, scientists,nurses, and staff at the hospitals that are amazing at their jobs. We think of them as our hospital family. I am overwhelmed at how many great people support us and are part of Emma’s army. The prayers and well wishes sent have kept us fighting on. I am mostly honored and humbled just to be EMILY’S DAD. Emily has told both Kari and I lately that we are her heroes. I told her well we are very lucky, because all three of us get to live with and see our heroes every day.

HAPPY THANKSGIVING! WE BELIEVE!
~Tom
