"The Lord says,
I have called
you by name.
You are mine." Isaiah 43:1

From Cincinnati Children's Hospital her parents write,
"Emily started a salvage high dose chemo on 10/15 with two cycles before going into her bone marrow transplant. Doctor hopes to transplant her within 8 weeks, as long as the donor pulls through. So many kids here don't have a matching donor. We thank all of you who offered to be tested to be a match and I urge you to act if called upon, as someone's life is depending on it. Since our two weeks here, Emily's lymphoma has already spread into her pelvis, femur and spinal cord and brain. We will not lose our faith that this next round of chemo will help to melt away her cancer so she can have a transplant. Please pray that Emily's donor will come through and a transplant will happen for her."
Emily is not allowed visitors, only mail - so gifts will be arriving at the perfect time.
