Friends of Emily Long are uniting to help she & her family make it through tough financial times caused by her chronic illness.

Emily Long is the bravest girl you'll ever meet. She is an excellent student (when she can go to school), avid swimmer (counting numerous Olympians as her friends), and the No. 1 BackStreet Boys fan ever to walk the earth! Emily has also endured over 90 + hospital stays in her lifetime and is currently in Johns Hopkins for an extended stay due to an infection. Yet, through it all, Emily never complains. Many people follow Emily's journey on CaringBridge- please visit her site at: http://www.caring and read 'My Story' for a better understanding of her incredibly difficult medical journey. Friends of Emily are always wondering what to do and the family rarely asks for help. Yet they are living in the constant shadow of illness, long hospital stays (mom Debbie never leaves her side) and never ending medical bills. Deb misses work often due to the hospital stays and the family is struggling. In this season of giving, I would like to ask you to please consider a gift to help ease their burden. When we have our health we are rich beyond measure and we often take our good health for granted. For Emily, this has never been the case. Please pass this on and feel free to post on your FB page and other social media. Thank you for your consideration.
