My Story

Emily's road began in the summer of 2011 when she was diagnosed with brain cancer at Children's Memorial Hospital. But with the love and support from friends and loved ones, she has battled through chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Emily was no regular 13-year-old. She's was always the one with the smile on her face that lit up the room when she walked through it. The straight A student who still found time to volunteer and hang out with her friends. She liked playing basketball and watching the Blackhawks. Her favorite place to eat was a Brazilian steakhouse where she managed to out eat her family.
