Rockstar Emily

 Meet Rockstar Emily
{from Rohr Rockstars' Pennsylvania Chapter}

Emily is a 6 year old who is currently rockin' her way through treatment at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. During her stay, she has already earned a rainbow of  "Beads of Courage" marking her bravery and strength along her tough journey. 

Diagnosed with acute lymphocytic leukemia (ALL) in May 2010, Emily responded well to chemotherapy, but relapsed in October 2011 after starting first grade, and again in February 2012 {two weeks before a scheduled bone marrow transplant}.

She is one tough little girl who loves playing with her dog Lucy, giggling with {and at} her daddy, and reading books with her mommy.  Emily makes the world a little brighter with her purple and pink clothes and her sweet smile. 

Keep up with Emily's journey on CaringBridge.
