“Reason this person is a Gold Ribbon Hero: Emma was diagnosed with brain cancer in 1994 at the age of 9.
There isn’t much she hasn’t gone through. She grew up quickly. She grew up within a hospital.
It’s easy to look back and remember all those bad times.
However it is how she continues to live that sets her apart from everyone else.
She graduated from the prestigious Cleveland Institute of Art with her bachelors degree in painting.
Just recently she started the masters program at Kent State University.
However living with cancer is always at the forefront. She volunteers at many pediatric cancer events. She never forgets what she went through.
She is my miracle. She is what pediatric cancer awareness is all about. Living life to the fullness.” – Julia A
