  • Who We Are, What We Do

    Emily’s Hopeful Holiday was created in honor of our daughter Emily, who was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of 7 in 2007. She was treated at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, Ohio and is now a CANCER SURVIVOR at the very young age of 14. During our painful journey we discovered that there are many families who are struggling with the staggering cost of cancer treatments. We have raised $92,565.00 since the fund's establishment in 2007. 100% of the money raised goes directly to the families at Rainbow to assist them in paying their bills (utilities, rent, etc.). For more information on EHH, please review this blog for links to media and other information. Emily's Hopeful Holiday Fund is through Rainbow Babies & Children's Hospital in Cleveland, OH and we are always accepting donations. Please use the CONTACT ME button to email me if you would like to make a contribution or use the PAYPAL DONATION button on the right side bar to make a donation. This fund assists families throughout the entire year, however, we focus our fundraising efforts during the holiday season. We will always remember the fear and heartache of chemo treatments, lumbar punctures, sedations, medical procedures, surgeries, and anxiously waiting on every test result. Our nerve wracking, yet relatively simple routine trips to the Ireland Cancer Center for Emily’s check-ups remind us of where we have been and that there are families and children just beginning this journey, continuing to endure this journey, and/or ending this journey with either an immense gratefulness or an unspeakable sadness. We are so grateful for Emily’s amazing prognosis, for her health, for her laughter, for her smile, for her silliness, for her. We thank God everyday for His blessing upon our family and for all the wonderful people who surround our lives with love and support.

A SURPRISE donation to EHH-A NEW TOTAL FOR 2009 = $13,500.00

Posted by emilyshopefulholiday on December 21, 2009


Thanks to an amazing individual, whom I do not know, who has made a very generous donation to Emily’s Hopeful Holiday, we have reached nearly $13,500 for 2009’s fundraising efforts.

This has always been my dream…for people to be touched by our story and the story of so many families enduring childhood cancer and to rally others to make a difference and to help these families while they are going through the worst time of their lives.

I am so fortunate to have my friends and family who continue to support Emily’s Hopeful Holiday each year. YOU are helping us make a difference. Thank you.

For those of you who have just discovered us…welcome and thank you for your generosity on behalf of all the families at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.  To date, we have raised over $30,000 since 2007 and have helped 19 families.

Donations STILL and ALWAYS being accepted…..

Posted by emilyshopefulholiday on November 10, 2009


Just because the fundraiser is over, doesn’t mean you cannot still donate if you or your place of employment is looking for a cause to support this Holiday Season.

I am still in the process of adding up all the donations from the fundraiser but am still expecting more donations…I will post the total on this page when I have a final amount.

You can make a donation through paypal using the donation button in the right upper-hand corner of this website.

Donations are always accepted throughout the year, however, we focus our fundraising efforts during the Holiday Season.  It should also be noted that this fund helps families throughout the entire year as well, not just during the holidays.  So far, EHH has helped 19 families!

Thank you for your support and caring for others.
