Emma's Memory

Emma was diagnosed with a rare form of pediatric brain cancer called Atypical Teratoid Rhabdoid Tumor (ATRT) in April of 2017, at nearly 4 months old. Emma underwent three brain surgeries, a tracheostomy, three stem cell transplants with high dose chemotherapy, and countless tests and procedures. Emma smiled through the worst of the worst and reminded us all to do the same. She left us on February 2, 2018.

Emma's Memory is raising $300,000 to have a window seat named after Emma on the new wing of the oncology floor. The floor where we spent the majority of the 2017. The place where we introduced Emma to views of the city she called home. The space where we found respite from the spiraling world around us. We want those who come behind us to feel the same comfort in their hardest of times.

This money will help fund The Pediatric Brain Tumor Program which sponsors research and clinical trials at Lurie Children's. Here are just a few ways your donations could help:

$35 can provide a comfort item for a premature infant to ensure the smallest and most fragile babies heal and grow faster.

$60 can help provide inpatient entertainment and distractions to help patients reduce stress and have fun while undergoing treatment.

$120 can help provide small lab supplies for one of the hospital's clinical trials to ensure our children have access to the latest treatments and therapies.

$240 can help provide supplies for the Lurie Children's classroom so that children in the hospital can continue their education.

All donations are tax-deductible and will be acknowledged by Lurie Children's Foundation.

On behalf of the patients and families of Lurie Children's, thank you for your support!
