Emmalene's Support Fund

Adam and Rebekah's daugther, Emmalene, is currently in the PICU at Lurie Children's Hospital.  She is being treated for Acute Liver Failure.  After several days of being on the liver transplant list, her liver is showing signs of improvment, but she is beginning to experience secondary complications associated with the various treatments.  The road to recovery will be long, but we know Emma is strong and a fighter.  

Plese consider supporting Emmalene's Support Fund to help offset expenses related to childcare for her sisters, Alexandra and Charlotte, and expenses related to parking, food, and accomodations while they are in the hospital.

On behalf of the Lara Family, we would like to thank you for your generosity and thoughtfulness.
