My daughters friend who is also named Emily was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Lymphoma (which is a form of non-hodgkins lymphoma) last October. It is a terrifying diagnosis no parent is prepared to hear and face. Since then she has been fighting back with countless trips to Boston, hospital stays, countless rounds of chemo, lumbar punctures, blood transfusions, hair loss, endless medications and school loss, the list goes on and on and feels overwhelming every step.
She is a fighter and will beat this. Team For The Love Of Em will walk united, to show support and honor Emily and her amazing family.
