  • 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.

For those businesses who have expressed an interest in donating, all donations must be in to me by the end of September.  This will give me time to photograph all items for raffle, post them on my blog and mail them snail mail.  The drawing will be held on November 7, 2009 at our EHH Open House.  Scroll down in the blog for more info on the history of EHH and about this year’s fundraiser.  Items for raffle will be posted on this blog between October 24, 2009 through November 6, 2009.  If you are purchasing tickets online, all tickets must be purchased by November 6, 2009 by midnight; if you are purchasing tickets via US Mail, I must receive all mailed entries by November 6, 2009.  All entries received after November 6, 2009 will be returned.  Go to the 2009 BASKET RAFFLE PURCHASE tab and follow the instructions.

Last year, EHH raised $7,000.  Below are some photos from last year’s fundraiser.  We had 36 baskets, many of them were valued $100 – $400 each.

Please help us raise more money for the families at Rainbow!  Children are being diagnosed every day with a life-threatening illness.  It doesn’t end….they need our help.

Monetary donations are also always welcome!
