Friday 1st February was a huge day for Emily.  This fun-loving, spunky 4 year old was diagnosed with a brain tumour. Not just any brain tumour, a rare and aggressive cancer called ATRT (Atypical Teratoid/Rhabdoid Tumour). Survival rates for this cancer are not high.  She is in for a fight....

Emily is the youngest member of an amazing family of 5, who all love life and bring joy to those around them. Deb & Jono are wonderful parents who are generous, loving and faithful. They are always first to lend a hand. 

Emily's battle has started....she has already undergone surgery to remove the brain tumour and now will be given intensive chemotherapy treatment weekly, radiotherapy and treatment directly into the brain. Emily’s home for the next year will be hospital.

So their world has been turned upside down....

With Emily in Westmead Hospital and home being in the Southern Highlands, there is a great distance between home and hospital.  With Emily's needs and maintaining life for Emily's older brother and sister, the pressure on Deb and Jono's time and energy will be immense.

Deb & Jono believe in a God of love and miracles, so please pray for Emily.  We are all holding firm to God's promises as stated in Psalm 91:16..."With long life I will satisfy her and show her my salvation."

Firstly, and foremost, we want people to support this family by joining Emily's Army of Prayer Warriors and ask for God's miracles.

Secondly, we know this will be a long road for Emily and her family and we want them to all focus on each other and Emily's treatment, and not be worried about the financial burden that this will undoubtedly create.

The ongoing medical expenses for Emily and the constant travel costs between home and hospital will have a financial impact on this family. Also, as you know, these types of illnesses come with unexpected costs, both immediate and in the future, so your support through this Go Fund Me page is a tangible way to care for the whole Hunt family.

A Facebook page has been set up for Emily's Army with updates on Emily, so please check it out https://www.facebook.com/emilysarmyofwarriors/ 

We ask if you can help meet their financial needs in this difficult time, then please donate to the “Emily's Army” fund and also please share with your close friends and family.

Thank you.
