Emma recently turned 3 and is the absolute delight of her parents, Micke and Marta.
A few weeks ago, Emma started to not feel well, complaining of headaches, easily growing tired, and having no energy. They knew something was wrong.
Micke and Marta took her to the hospital on June 16th looking for answers. She was held for observation and testing, to see what could be causing this illness.
While in the hospital, Emma had 3 seizures. On Monday, she had a CT scan.
The results confirmed their worst nightmare. Emma has a malignant brain tumor in the center of her brain and has been deemed inoperable. The doctors have taken a biopsy and confirmed it is cancer.
They will have to wait 2-3 weeks until they get more results to decide what course of action can be taken.
As any of you can imagine, parent or not, the hardest part is feeling powerless when your child is not well.
I am helping Micke and Marta, our good friends, to raise funds to enable them to spend all their time with their sweet girl while she goes through this process. I know, as a mom, I would never want to leave her side.
Anyone who knows Micke and Marta knows that they are amazing people. Marta works in a pharmacy, mixing medicines, helping children with cancer. Micke, who is a magician and also a builder of R2-D2's takes his R2 to visit children fighting cancer.
So I ask you to donate. Anything you can do to help, even if it's sharing this campaign. It will mean so much to them to be with Emma and not have to worry about stupid things like bills and rent. It will also mean so much to Emma to have her parents with her.
I appreciate you taking the time to read and for your support.
