When our daughter Emery (EMMY) was just five months old, she was diagnosed with embryonal rhabdomyosarcoma, a rare childhood cancer. From that day forward, our lives were most certainly changed forever. We are now so proud and excited to present Emmy's Friends Foundation, which will allow us to pay forward all the support and love we received in a difficult time. Check out our mission page to learn more.
In the beginning, the idea of sharing information about her as we were just beginning down a very dark path was exceptionally hard to come to terms with. In short order however, we made the choice to share as openly and honestly as possible. Not just for the amazing family and friends that we are blessed to have in our lives, but also for other families going through a similarly harrowing journey.
Our hope was that our words might just help them on their path, bringing some light into the dark, some insight through the dim and some levity when it is needed the most. Throughout her treatment, we wrote. A lot. So now we are sharing it with you. A blow by blow of pediatric cancer treatment from the front lines. You will laugh, you will cry but hopefully after you read about our journey, you'll take something wonderfully positive with you.
So come on in, sit down, grab a cup of something good and let's walk that path together.
