  • 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 17. During our painful journey we discovered that there are many families who are struggling with the staggering cost of cancer treatments. We have raised $144,500.00 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.

2009 Fundraising Efforts Begin – WE NEED YOUR HELP

Posted by emilyshopefulholiday on June 23, 2009

If you would you like to donate to the 2009 Emily’s Hopeful Holiday Fundraiser, please email me using the CONTACT ME area on this blog.

This year, in addition to my EHH Open House on November 7, 2009, I am having a Basket Raffle via Cyberspace/US Mail Fundraiser.  Items being raffled will be posted on this blog from October 24, 2009 – November 6, 2009.  Drawing will be held on November 7, 2009 at the EHH Open House.

This basket raffle is the same thing I did last year,however, everything will also be available ONLINE and through the mail or by attending our Open House on November 7, 2009.

I am in need of many items to be donated by both businesses and individuals.  Items I am looking for:  themed baskets, gift cards – restaurants, retail, spa, etc., individual items to add to baskets, tickets to entertainment venues, and of course, good old fashion money!

100% of the profits from my fund raisers goes directly to the family’s at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital.

Please share this information with your friends, families, co-workers, employers, etc. and see if they would be interested in helping out the families at Rainbow!

As always, we thank everyone for their generosity to EHH.  We have been very blessed in the past with such wonderful donations.

Being a mother of a child who is now a cancer survivor, it’s not only the money these families receive that helps them through their journey, but the thought that someone cares about them during their child’s illness and their family crisis.  Our family was beyond blessed by so many people while Emily endured her treatments.  We know how it felt when others cared for us.  We want them to feel the same…
