Meet Sweet Baby Emery
Hi. My name is Emery.
I wanted to show you how cute I am before I tell you my story.
Some day this picture will embarrass me but it's OK for now.
Here's my story.
I'm six-weeks old and the baby girl cousin of Juan and Texas Woman. I live in Amarillo, Texas, but the other day I was life-flighted to Texas Children's Hospital in Houston because - and you won't believe this - I have cancer. The tumor is pressing on my spine and attached to my lungs.
Last night I had a port placed in me and I had my first treatment of chemotherapy. I probably need at least one more treatment. The doctors are trying to shrink the tumor away from my spine to make the operation easier.
So I'm here asking you a favor. When you send up prayers for The Texas Woman, could you add my name next to hers? It's just a little name.
