  • 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 $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.

I am in the process of working with Rainbow on getting our raffle tickets  available for pre-ordering.  I expect this to be done within the next couple weeks.  Please stay tuned!


I am putting baskets up as I receive them.  So far, there are 15 baskets up to view here:  https://emilyshopefulholiday.wordpress.com/raffle-baskets-now-available/  I expect to have 40+ baskets.

Thank you to everyone at the Quarter Paddle Auction on Friday night.  They donated $1147.88 to EHH and we sold our coupon books, IPAD2, 50/50 tickets, and cupcakes from SWEETS BY MAGGIE! in Amherst and made another $357.  A very successful night for EHH.  Thank you to MAGGIE for donating your delicious cupcakes to this event.
