    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 $135,586.56 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.

2011 Fundraiser – date to be announced (November of 2011)

Posted by emilyshopefulholiday on April 8, 2011


I know it’s early, but it’s never too early to start planning EHH.  This year, I am planning for a bigger crowd, more prizes, and a goal of $10,000 to hand over to Rainbow!  Last year, we raised nearly $8,000 so it’s not impossible.   I need YOUR help.

Please use the contact me tab if you are interested in being one of our sponsors for this year’s event to be held in November, 2011.

I am also looking for people who want to donate items to the raffle, or donate completed theme baskets, and/or sponsor prizes that are more costly that I would like to add to the raffle this year –  contact me for more information.

100% of the proceeds go directly to the families who have children with cancer at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital to help pay their bills while their children are being treated.  There are many ways you can help.  Please contact me and I will let you know how YOU can help.

As always, thank you for your continued support.  I couldn’t put this event together without the help of the community, friends, family, and those who hear about us and want to make a difference.
