Emily told us back in May that in honor of her 9th birthday she wanted to raise $9,000 to donate to cancer research. When we asked her why she chose that amount she said “because it’s my 9th birthday!” Then she said “well, let’s just make it $10,000 – an extra $1,000 to grow on!”
In honor of Emily’s 9th birthday – and celebrating two years cancer free – we want to help her meet her goal. The goal is to raise $9,000 – er, $10,000 – by the end of September (Childhood Cancer Awareness Month)!!
On Friday Emily celebrated 1 year cancer free!! Last year on May 10th was the day we found out that the T-cells had worked and that Emily was in remission!!
