Emilie loves swimming, and  "just keep swimming" is our motto.  And now, it's our own race for the cure for Emilie.  She has DIPG, an agressive form of brain cancer, and the prognosis is not good.  Most children diagnosed with DIPG don't survive.  Time is not on our side, but there are promising treatment options that are expensive and require extensive travel, so we need your help to fund "Emilie's Cure."     

Emilie was diagnosed with a brain tumor on Friday, September 9th, and she had brain surgery on Monday, September 12th.  We now know she has an aggressive, malignant brain tumor called DIPG.   She arrived at St. Jude Children's Hospital in Memphis on September 19th and received radiation treatment there.  Now, we are searching for the cure to this devastating cancer.   Everything has happened so fast, and we are so appreciative of your support and prayers. This site was created to keep you updated about Emilie, and  check out the "Friends of Emilie Gibson" facebook page as well.  If you would like to make a donation to Emilie, you can access her alternate GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/emilies-cure?ssid=824516784&pos=1
