  • 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.

Hi everyone…

I am so pleased with all the hits I’ve been getting on this website.  Thank you!  I had nearly 200 in one day.  And thank you to those who have already purchased your raffle tickets online.  Your tickets have been processed and you are in the raffle for the prizes you’ve chosen.

I’d like to hear what everyone thinks of the baskets and if you plan on attending the fundraiser, purchasing tickets, etc.  We are planning a great day on November 7 with great entertainment, great refreshments, great prizes, and of course, it’s all for a great cause.

I receive periodic updates on people we’ve met through our journey who are still going through their ordeal.  We’ve been blessed beyond measure that the toughest part of our ordeal is over and Emily is healthy and “normal”.  Words cannot describe the pain of a parent watching their child endure many medical procedures, receive toxic medicine into their little bodies, hospital days confined in their rooms for days, weeks, months, etc.   The parents of these children face horrendous fear on a daily basis waiting on every test results and not knowing the outcome of their child’s disease.

Your contribution to EHH goes DIRECTLY to families at Rainbow who have children with a life-threatening disease.  100% of the money I raise goes to Rainbow and through the Emily’s Hopeful Holiday Fund, they will continue to assist families with their bills and alleviate at least a little bit of stress in their lives.

I know times are tough for EVERYONE…but imagine having a child with a life-threatening illness and enduring these tough economic times.
