This is the Emily Lloyd Brookins Cancer Fund. The family and friends of Emily are uniting to help pay for her medical expenses.

Emily is a 28-year-old wife and mother of two children ages 3 1/2 and 18 months. She was diagnosed with colon cancer July 25, 2011. An MRI a week later discovered that the cancer had spread to her lymph node. A cat scan a week later revealed spots on her liver. Emily is now diagnosed with stage IV colon cancer.

Emily has a tough battle ahead of her. For the next 9 months the majority of her days will include chemotherapy, radiation, surgery at Emory Hospital, and more chemotherapy. Although she does have healthcare insurance, she will miss a considerable amount of time from work, which will leave her family with an ongoing financial burden. The expense of numerous co-pays, sophisticated tests not covered by insurance and her travel to Emory for daily chemo visits must be paid out of pocket, and that is why we are asking for your help.

Click on the updates tab above to see notes on Emily and her progress in this battle.

She also found out that in a few months she will have to change over to COBRA insurance which will increase her insurance expense 5 fold while her pay is still substantially reduced. This Fundraiser will be absolutley necessary to keep her afloat until she can return to work some time next year.
Thanks for all the support and Prayers for Emily and our Families as she battles thru this trial. She will beat this!
