  • 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.

Some Important facts about Emily’s Hopeful Holiday:

  • We use the abbreviation “EHH” for Emily’s Hopeful Holiday.
  • Our very first EHH began in November/December, during the holiday season, hence the name, Emily’s Hopeful Holiday.
  • We focus our fundraising efforts during the holiday season but our fund assists families throughout the entire year.
  • We are based out of Amherst, OH (Lorain County).
  • We accept monetary donations all year round via cash, personal check or donation through this website (Paypal button located upper right-hand corner).
  • Our fund is operated through Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital in Cleveland, OH through a social worker who determines the need for assistance.
  • Emily’s Hopeful Holiday is the only fund of it’s kind at Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital. 
  • Financial assistance is provided to help with anything the family is in need of.  From utilities, rent, mortgages, to car repairs to get their child back and forth to doctor appointments. 
  • We do not raise money for cancer research, toys for the kids, or the hospital.  The very first year, we raised money, asked for gift cards, and requested toys for the kids and supplies for the art room on Rainbow 2, but now we simply raise money for families who have kids with cancer.
  • Although we are affiliated with Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital, our fund’s mission is to raise money for families who have kids with cancer.
  • 100% of the money raised goes directly to families who have kids with cancer being treated on Rainbow 2.  
  • We receive no money from the hospital, nor do we raise money for the hospital.
  • EHH provides assistance to families on Rainbow 2 (the second floor of Rainbow Babies & Children’s Hospital/the cancer floor). No family is turned away for any reason — as long as they have a child being treated for cancer on Rainbow 2, they qualify for assistance.
  • EHH has been successful through generous monetary donations from family, friends and local businesses. 
  • As a two-time cancer survivor myself, and our daughter, Emily, whom the fund is created in honor of and now a childhood cancer survivor at age 17, our mission is to assist families who embark on this dreadful journey by providing financial assistance to them. This foundation is run by our family consisting of me, my two daughters and my husband and our operation center is our home.
