I cried when I read about his story and immediately I knew what I needed to do.
When Emily was just 5 weeks old, we brought her to the Maria Fareri Childrens Hospital for the first time. The building looked so comforting and we had a sense of peace as we walked from the parking lot, hoping that our answers and a good prognosis for Emily's eyesight were waiting for us inside. But as we approached the entrance, a young girl with a bandanna wrapped around her head was being wheeled out to her car in a wheelchair. She was weak and we watched as her father picked her up and put her in the car. She undoubtedly had cancer of some kind and at that moment my heart sank and tears welled up in my eyes.

We are so excited about this and cannot wait to finally be able to pass on some of the kindness and happiness that has been given to us. Our goal is to make each child smile, give them some HOPE to hold on to and a little extra strength to fight against their illness.
Please help us pay it forward!
|Emily, you are our inspiration of HOPE!|
