Emma was diagnosed with Pre-B Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia just six days before her third birthday. She was doing great in therapy until she entered the maintenance phase of therapy which lasted about a year and a half. One of the drugs used in this phase, methotrexate, which is used to prevent the cancer from spreading to her spine and brain, caused her to have brain lesions and damage to her basal ganglia. Emma began having seizures because of this, but she is now doing much better and is on top of her chemotherapy treatment and taking anti-seizure medication. She is a trooper and is doing wonderfully now, something that her family is so grateful for every day.

Every child who has been diagnosed with childhood cancer inspires us to Rally On to find better treatments with fewer long-term side effects and, ultimately, cures. Please join us in the fight against childhood cancer by making a donation or setting up your own Rally fundraiser today.
