Emily is a 29 year old administrator at Tulane University. As a New Orleans native and a graduate of Imacculata High School, she has dedicated her life to the service of others. She recently returned from Washington D.C. where she earned her masters degree in bioethics and worked for the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops as an Executive Assistant in General Council. She is known for her kind nature and willingness to help those around her.

On February 21 of this year, Emily was admitted to the hospital for what she thought was a migraine headache. After further testing, Emily was diagnosed with a brain tumor and they were able to remove most of the tumor in surgery two days later.  As she awaits further testing to determine the severity, one thing we do know is that this will require rigorous and costly treatment. Emily just began a new job at Tulane and is not eligible for FMLA. Her husband, Anton, is a Religion teacher at Archbishop Shaw High School and has been by her side constantly. Our hope is to help alleviate the financial burden so suddenly placed on this newly wedded couple as they attempt to navigate through this very trying time. Please consider donating to help our sweet Emily and her family in any way you can.

The following is from Emily and Antonio.

“Hello friends,

Today Emily and I had the follow up appointment with the surgeon to discuss the pathology results. Emily's tumor is a glioblastoma, grade 4 (the highest and most aggressive type).

The road ahead will definitely be long and arduous. She will have to have various appointments and check ups etc. Next steps are radiation and chemotheraphy.

Emily is so very grateful for your support, prayers and faith. Thank you so much! We love all of you.

Antonio and Emily”

It’s hard to understand why they have to walk this path, we don’t know the plans that the Lord has in this. But we do know that he loves Emily more than we do and we stand on this. Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you, says the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”
You have all been so wonderful in supporting them so far. Thank you! We ask that you please continue praying for them and for their family as they walk this difficult road together. This is hard and they are going to need the support of their friends and family in ways that we don’t even know yet. We will continue to keep you updated and ask that you share this post with your friends as well.

Jesus we trust in you.

This is from Tirsa, Emily’s mom.

“Friends and family, I urge to pray for us. Tomorrow we get the results of the biopsy at 340pm. If you could say a Divine Mercy Chaplet at 3pm we would really appreciate it. Thank you so much for your kindness.”

Please keep them all in prayer as they find out what the results are and what the next step is.
Thank you all for all the love and support you have been showing them.
