Meet Emmy

February 2 is Neuroblastoma National Awareness Day. Meet, Emmy, a patient at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

With a smile that lights up a room, this spirited preschooler battled and beat a deadly cancer thanks to the expert clinical care and groundbreaking research that saved her life — and the financial assistance that allowed her parents to focus on her health rather than the cost of medical care.

Your Yes Helps Shape the Future of Cancer Care

“Seattle Children’s long-standing dedication to research is why we can offer patients like Emmy the most promising and innovative therapies available.

This work is largely funded by generous donors who help fund cutting-edge clinical trials, so we can develop more targeted, less toxic treatments — vast improvements in how we care for children and young adults with cancer. Without philanthropy, I think we would be back in the ice ages of cancer care.

Two years after being diagnosed with cancer, Emmy’s prognosis is good. I’m happy to report that so far there is no evidence of her cancer recurring. Your generous support accelerates research and funds treatments that give all children like Emmy the very best chance for survival. Thank you.” — Dr. Navin Pinto, a member of Emmy’s cancer care team at Seattle Children’s
