My Story

Emily is a survivor of embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma located in the skull base. She was diagnosed in August of 2007 at age 3 years, 11 months of age. She was treated at Memorial Sloan Kettering in New York City with 12 rounds of high-dose chemo and radiation. She has been NED (no evidence of disease) since July of 2008. She has a number of significant late effects due to her treatment and has endured numerous surgeries but stays positive and strong. Currently, Emily is in 7th Grade. She loves animals, especially horses, her dog, Benji, her bearded dragon, Tia, and her bird, Blue.  She is also an amazing artist.  When she grows up she would like to be an environmentalist or architect. She is the toughest person, we know.
