This cancer diagnosis was very devastating to our family. Our whole world crushed before us and we didn’t now how to fix it. The doctors at Cardon Children’s Medical Center didn’t think Emmit would make it because of the severity of his illness and how far the cancer spread when he was diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma on November 7, 2017 when he was 1 1/2. Emmit proved everyone wrong! He went through 5 months of chemotherapy, 6 surgeries (so far) , and 2 transplants. Like a champ he gives me strength every day. Emmit still has a year and a half of treatment to go, but it will be years to get him where he needs to be. Most of the time you wouldn’t be able to tell he was sick. He is definitely a fighter.
