I Feel the Love Project- Emily


I Feel the Love Project
One Year Anniversary

Project #10

Today we continue our journey back to the beginning by looking back at our recipient for the month of April 2012.

It all started when Emily began complaining about her legs and joints hurting, among other trips to the pediatrician. This is when her parents decided to take her to the children's hospital, where they found out the bad news, Emily had Leukemia.

On April 25th, Emily wrote the following message on her Caring Bridge page, "Well, I'm a week into my new chemo phase and although my energy level is not quite what it was, I'm doing well and moving forward as planned. Dr. says my counts will start to drop this week but I'm determined to not let it affect me too much. My family is with me (which is So important) and I have good prayers and great support along side me. Thank you to everyone for the positive words and the love and support!!! Hugs and smiles.....Emily."

Emily's aunt said that Emily's mom is soooooooo thankful to each and every person that has sent something to little Emily!  She wishes that she could send a thank you card back but that would take FOREVER!  She is soo truly thankful that there is so much love to go around and she has promised to send some pictures to show everyone what Emily has been getting and how happy it makes her everyday to get new cards!  It puts a smile on her face every single day that she checks the mail!!! And THAT is priceless!!!!

This is the reason that the I Feel the Love Project exists and will continue!  Any time we can brighten the day of someone going through something as serious as a cancerous brain tumor, I say it is the least we can do.  Thank you again to all my wonderful followers who continue to support this project.

Join me tomorrow as we look back at the recipient of the I Feel the Love Project cards for the month of May 2012, Brandon.

Have a wonderful day.

  1. Sweet Emily... how brave she is! I love that she is blessed with a steady flow of cards as she endures this treatment. (With such strength and sunshine she battles!) Every month's recipient is a superhero. :o)

    Hugs and blessings!
