My Story

Emma is a sweet, artistic and funny 6 year old that's soft spoken and has the most endearing blue eyes. At 3 she was diagnosed with a rare Juvenile Pilocytic Astrocytoma tumor in her spine leading to 2 major surgeries, scoliokyphosis braces, hours of physical therapy to learn to walk again and a year of chemotherapy. Through out all she remains strong, endures all that comes with some fear but gracefully exemplifies her name.............. EMMA the BRAVE.
