Emily Morrison, a 2009 Virginia Tech graduate, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in April 2011. Since then, Emily has undergone Chemo, radiation and countless surgeries.

The good news?
Emily's brain tumor is not growing at the moment.

The bad news?
As of recently, Emily's optic nerve tumor has been interfering with her vision- leaving her completely blind in her right eye. Within the last few weeks, Emily's vision in her left eye is diminishing- if this continues, she will most likely be completely blind very soon. The doctors have said that they do not think her vision will return.

Emily is undergoing chemo now, in hopes to stop growth of the optic tumor.

What WE can do:

Ever since Emily has been diagnosed, she has only asked that people donate to Brain Tumor research- stating that "Research is my key. Research can save my life. I fundraise for the National Brain Tumor Society because remission is not the end or the beginning - it is the middle. Until there is a cure, I will fight every day."

She has never once asked for financial contributions personally despite continuing to live on her own and work in Manhattan for over a year and having countless hospital stays and surgeries.

Emily has created a "To See" list. She says this is not a bucket list but rather a spontaneous list of things she needs to see before she loses her vision. Some of the things are her list are big, some of them are small. Let's help Emily out financially so she can accomplish all of the things that are on her list- afterall, she would never ask herself.
