This is Emma, who has had to fight not only Juvenile Myositis, but Leukemia!
Emma has an indomitable spirit and a contagious smile, although spending much of her young life at Duke Hospital and Ronald McDonald House! This is her comment about My Little Angel from her mother:
“She loved it. She has read it so much that she knows it by heart 🙂 she shows it off to everyone?!”
“Emma is the 9 year old daughter of Anthony and Ida Conley of Wise County, VA. Emma was diagnosed with Juvenile Dermatomyositis at the age of 5 which is a rare autoimmune disease…18 months into treatment she was diagnosed with APML, a rare form of leukemia. She has undergone many chemotherapy treatments and lumbar punctures but has kept her faith and her smiles. She is a girly girl with high hopes and a bright spirit. She has a big heart and touches the lives of everyone she meets in some way.”
Please also remember my CureJM Fundraiser, to help children like Emma…
Please remember that everyone can help by getting great books for kids and grandkids (and their friends) and support CureJM – Juvenile Myositis, an incurable children’s disease – at the same time! Please visit the on-going CureJM Fundraiser at http://sbpra.com/curejm where 50% of the cost of my award-winning children’s books goes to the CureJM Foundation. The names of many JM kids are included in my newly released 2017 book, “My Little Angel”. Please help us find a cure for kids like Addie, Alyssa, Brookelyn, Cassie, Daisy, Dmitri, Eldon, Emma, Jaden, Kinser, Tristan, Zayden and all the other JM kids – and the many adults who also have this horrible disease!!!
