Emma was born with Down syndrome and within a year developed juvenile diabetes. Her days are filled with endless monitoring and continual struggles. On July 19th, 2008 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. we will be having a benefit fair at Wines Park (500 N. Center, Lehi) in behalf of Emma to help her family cope with the medical costs of major surgeries, medication, and doctor appointments that have buried the young family and will for years to come. A non-profit organization called Endless Hope Foundation has been started on behalf of Emma and donations are accepted at any Zions Bank. If you're interested in helping, please leave a comment with a way you can be reached. Thank you.
Some of you might have met Emma when she spotted you in the crowd and greeted you with a hug. To her friends and family, she's the soul-reader. She always seems to find the person who's in need of a friend the most. In tears of gratitude, a woman in the park thanked her family for Emma's comfort. "She knew I needed a hug today," the stranger said. It's for this reason and so many more that we're so grateful to have Emma in our lives and why we've decided to share her life with you.
