    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.

The total from yesterday’s four hour EHH event……drum roll please….$7930! Not bad for four hours. In addition to that, I have many more checks, donations, pre-sales, etc. to figure out. I also made $3500 on our sponsor booklet that was handed out at the event last night. Looks like it was a great year for families at Rainbow! I will post the final total once I have it all figured out. Thank you to everyone who supports Emily’s Hopeful Holiday – Childhood Cancer Family Financial…! The 50/50 winner, Don Collier from Lorain, won our biggest ever 50/50 pot….$673.50 and he donated $100 back to EHH. Ziggy’s dining percentage to us was $577 and by Kohl’s sending employees to volunteer, we receive a grant for $500 from the Kohl’s Cares Program. For those of you wonderful people who donated so I can purchase the Apple Computer, YOU helped raise $1440 just on that! For those of you who donated to the WINE basket, you helped raise $435! To those of you who donated to all the other raffles and general raffle, you helped raise OVER $4,000. I can’t thank you all enough…supporters, donors, sponsors, and volunteers! YOU are awesome!!!
