Emma’s triumph

30 05 2010

Since we have started spreading the word about our trip we have heard various stories of families and friends fighting leukemia and other cancers. Not all the stories we have encountered have been sad ones. One story specifically is of an 11 year girl named Emma who was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 5. She has now been in remission for 4 years. We love hearing stories like this because it gives us hope that the battle against Leukemia can be won. In honor of Emma we are going to be taking with us a stuffed animal dog named Sadie (which is her dogs name) in which you will see pictures of us with the dog along the way. At the end of the trip we will be giving Emma the dog. Below is a picture of Sadie and us.

Stay Optimistic,

Joe, Alex, Brittany, & Colin

Sadie, Colin and Bandit
