Please help me raise money in support of my friend, Emily, and her sweet family. I would like to raise this money to help the Fruge family with the medical and travel expenses that they are faced with as Emily puts up her biggest fight yet.
Emily has been kicking cancer's butt for 12 years. At age 10, Emily was diagnosed with Pinealblastoma cancer in the brain. She underwent chemotherapy and radiation for this tumor. At age 17, Emily was diagnosed with Sertolli-ledig ovarian cancer located in the right ovary and Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer located in the cervix. She underwent chemotherapy to treat these. At age 21, Emily was diagnosed with Rhabdomyosarcoma cancer located in the brainstem. She underwent radiation and chemotherapy treatments for this cancer.
Now, at age 22, Emily is in ICU recovering from seizures, a stroke, and major surgery on her brainstem, where doctors were able to clean up a blood clot and remove several abnormal blood vessels that were going to the tumor area. Results are still pending from samples retrieved during the surgery.
Emily is the strongest, kindest, most God-fearing woman I know. She has constantly defied the odds and always sees the good in things. I care about her and her family as part of my own. Please help me help them focus their energy on Emily's road to recovery, and not the expenses they have to endure.
