My Story

Our 9 year old daughter, Emily, was diagnosed with a thalamic pilocytic astrocytoma in January 2008. She has a Grade 1 (slow-growing) tumor in the thalamus of her brain. It is in the deep structure of the left side of her brain and cannot be removed surgically. She has begun a long treatment plan that begins with a year long chemotherapy cycle at Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital. Emily is a funny, social, happy girl. She continues to inspire and amaze us with her vibrance and humor. Minutes after the doctors told Emily she had a brain tumor she said she was going to name her tumor "Doloris" and then our 9 year old daughter made her own campaign to win her fight she said "Doloris has to go!"
