    Dear Tom,  what a great message...  and what a very special Father's Day you had...   Thank you for all you, Kari and Emily are doing to help ensure the NIH continues to fund cancer research!   Sincerely, Linda

    Glad to hear that your family is finding its new normal.  You have been changed and you are changing all of us.  You make us awareness about just not Emily's fight but all the children and adults who are battling a killer.  I admire your commitment of time and energy.It is touching to hear how Emily is doing the normal growing up things, going from  - "Where's Mom and Dad?" to "Give me some space!".  Join the club of being a parent!!!!Applause to all of you - and Happy Father's DayLoretta

    Keep up the fight!  You have come so far and are an inspiration to so many.  Enjoy each day to the fullest and pray for guidance and strength for the future.  God is a wonderful shelter throughout our storms and a guiding light to our feet.  Thank you for sharing your story and your concerns - He knows just how to suit a blessing to each of your needs!
    Prayers for you all.

    Congratulations on finishing second grade, Emily!  Hope you have an awesome summer!  I was thinking about you last night when they showed CHOP on the news, and told about the little girl who just got the lung transplant there.  She's in my prayers and so are you.

    Thanks for the update.  Often, when I get discouraged about a severe medical problem someone has, Emily's miracle pops into my head.  What a great testimony your little girl is!  Prayers continuing.

    The video is totally amazing...Dr. June may well be the Jonas Salk of the 21st Century!
    Emma, you're simply beautiful!
    God Bless the cancer kids - yay, Emma! - and the background people in the labs who are making strides to conquer the "C" word.

    I have been away from the office for so long and have not gotten to talk to you Tom, so I am happy when you post a new message, I think of EMily often, as a matter of fact, while in Arnold PA last week I came upon a little girl that also has Leukemia and was able to pass along Emily's story to her family, so she is still inspriing others and I still wish you all th best and send my love!!!!!
