A sweet little 5 year old girl named Emma, lost her battle with cancer this past Sunday evening. She fought a long, hard battle, but ultimately God needed another angel.

I got to meet Emma at a friend's birthday party back in January. She was having a lot of fun just like a 5 year old should! Quickly after, they received the horrible news that her cancer had spread and there wasn't anything they could do etc. Her mom creates and sells jewelery and little Emma helped. She came to my school last Wednesday to sell some of her pieces and was proud of her creations. She was in quite a bit of pain, but hung out with us for a while! I purchased two sets of earrings, and I will wear them proudly and think of her every time.
She went to St. Jude and was even the patient of the month in March!
You can read her story here:
I'm not one to ask but if you could spare a few bucks a month (or one time), I know St. Jude and the children they serve could use it greatly.
I know my donation will be made in memory of sweet little Emma.
