On January 23 of 2007 our 6 year old daughter, Emily, was diagnosed with a malignant tumor called Rhabdomyosarcoma. It was in her left kidney and attached to her pancreas, diaphragm and spleen. The surgeons were able to remove all visible pieces but the tumor did break open during that process and there was some spillage in her body cavity.
There are no words for the pain that you feel after losing a child. There will always be an emptiness in our lives. Now we are making our family's mission to make sure Emily's death is not in vain and that one day hopefully in our lifetime we will see a cure for the cancer that took our sweet little girl from us way too soon.
More information will be posted on this site soon. Please check back frequently for updates. Thank you for your care and concern. Your support of this research means a great deal to many families.
