My sister and her husband had been trying for some time to get pregnant. On July 29th 2009 a little angel was born into our family Emily Elizabeth Erhart. Over the next year Emily blessed our family in so many ways. We loved watching her grow. From the first time she crawled to her first tooth, first steps, and first words. She was always happy and a joy to be around. In June of 2011 a tragedy struck our family. Emily was diagnosed with Acute Lympho Blastic Leukemia. This past year has been very trying for my sister and her husband and the rest of our family. Watching Emily go through Chemo and other therapies has been so difficult. She has completely lost her hair which is a visual reminder to us all that she is still sick. With her counts being high and low it is hard for Emily to be a normal kid. My sister and brother in law have decided to use Emily's wish through the Make A Wish Foundation and get her a new back yard that she can play in and just be a kid. We have already had helpers clearing the back yard and getting it ready for this amazing wish but its not over yet. I am asking that you open your hearts one more time and help us raise money, to go above and beyond what the Make A Wish Foundation is going to do and give Emily a backyard that she will never forget! All the money raised will go to purchasing items to add to her back yard. Even through all the pain and difficult times Emily has managed to keep a smile on her face and raise our spirits. Please help me show her just how much she is loved!
