Let's make this Bumpy Road a little smoother for Emilia & her family!

Our friend Emilia is a fun & energetic girl who has just been recently diagnosed with Ewing Sarcoma bone cancer. Emilia has many friends, that want to do something more for her than just say "We're thinking about you!". With a girl that is so sweet and fun it's hard to sit back and do nothing.

Ewing's sarcoma is a primary bone cancer that affects mainly children and adolescents. It's one of a group of cancers known collectively as the Ewing sarcoma family of tumors -- ESFT or sometimes just EFT. It's the second most common bone cancer in children, but it's also relatively uncommon. It accounts for only 1% of all childhood cancers. Although it can occur at any age, it very rarely occurs in adults over the age of 30. Many illnesses can cause the same symptoms as Ewing's sarcoma, it's sometimes missed in its early stages. - Source: WebMD
