My Story

Emily was diagnosed with Anaplastic Medulloblastoma in May 2012. She went through Radiation and Chemotherapy treatment daily for 6 /12 weeks (or 30 doses) over July - Aug 2012. After an 8 week break, she moved into 6 months of maintenance treatment which included in patient chemotherapy over 4 days monthly. Emily completed her last dose of chemo on Feb. 27, 2013. We now move into the stage of recovering from the effects of the treatment: severe drop foot and gaining back muscle so Emily will be able to walk on her own. Through all of this journey Emily has been positive, strong, and happy. She wakes up every day with a smile on her face! She loves doing art, crafts, reading, and listening to music. She's an inspiration to everyone around her! CaringBridge: http://www.caringbridge.org/visit/emilygriffin/journal Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/#!/EmmysArmy
