It all started in October 2013, Brad mentioned that Emma's right eye might be lazy. I never saw her eye do anything abnormal so we brushed it off. A week later we were looking at pictures from the pumpkin patch and Brad pointed to one of Emma where her eye was clearly off in a different direction.
Christmas Eve was spent in the hospital. We received the devastating news that Emma had a very large optic nerve glioma and five smaller tumors caused by a condition called Neurofibromatosis One. The tumor around her eye cause her to go blind in her right eye. This discovery led to MRI exams every two - three months and a debulking surgery in June. The biopsy from the surgery revealed that Emma falls in the less then 10% of all children with this rare disorder to develop cancer. So here we are with stage three cancer hoping that medical science can save our baby. Emma was born a teeny NICU preemie and has always shown us her fighting spirit. This time we ask her to face a bigger foe, childhood cancer.
Emma is now half way through round one of her chemo treatments, her next MRI is April 20th and will reveal a lot about her future treatment options.
We are asking family and friends for help. The medical bills are stacking up and there is still more we need to do for our little Emma. Thank you for everyones support and prayers!
