The Paulsons have helped so many in the childhood cancer world over the past 4+ years. Now it is our turn to help them.
At just 16 years old, on January 17, 2012, the lovely Emma Rose was diagnosed with Very High Risk Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL). After heroically enduring 2½ years of intense chemotherapy, her family was confident that she was completely and forever cured. Emma completed treatment, graduated high school and began her studies as a nursing student at her beloved St. Mary’s College in Notre Dame, IN. She was successfully pursing her dream to become a pediatric oncology nurse, and to hopefully one day work alongside the nurses who saved her life at Children’s Hospital of WI’s MACC Fund.Just 10 months into treatment, Emma established Emma Rose – A Patient Helping Patients as a way to pay it forward to other little ones fighting cancer. For the past 4+ years, Emma has been collecting gifts from people all across the country. Much to the delight of all the patients and nurses, Emma bundles the thoughtful goodies up, beautifully packages them and delivers 50-70 of these comfort gift packages to her fellow patients every month.
Emma Rose has brought so much love, joy, and support to hundreds of young cancer fighters and their families over the years. Now Emma and her family need YOUR support. This past Christmastime, they were devastated to learn, just days before the “magic” 5 years, that Emma’s cancer had returned. Emma has now begun her 2nd fight against Leukemia. This time, she will have 2+ years of an even more rigorous chemo regiment. Because the treatment protocol is so lengthy and expensive, we are asking for financial donations and heartfelt prayers to help ease the burden Emma Rose and her family now face. The family is sincerely grateful for your generosity.
To send a check to the family, please make it out to Emma Rose Benefit Fund and mail to Emma Rose, PO Box 485, Thiensville, WI, 53092
