Thanks to all who helped PINK IT TO THE LIMIT at the MARATHON!
Emily was diagnosed with Stage IV Neuroblastoma in October 2005. This beautiful, strong-willed little girl known as the Pink Power Ranger Princess fought with everything she had for four months to beat her cancer. On February 20, 2006 while undergoing surgery to remove her tumor, Emily won her battle and went to dance in heaven.
Her family wishes to continue her fight and find a cure for this disease. Emily’s Power for a Cure is her fight against cancer carrying on! While the goal of the foundation is to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Neuroblastoma, there are more immediate needs for families and children fighting this disease. The foundation, Emily's namesake, was founded in 2006 by Emily's parents Jonathon and Wendy Ransom.
Research Grants! 2010 has been an exciting year for Emily's Power for a Cure! We are very proud to announce that we have granted two $50,000 to two top research hospitals in the US. We are so proud to be able to do this for Emily and all of her friends fighting neuroblastoma. It is our belief that this research will lead to long term, event free survival for all kids battling NB. We could not have done this without your support. Thanks to all of our sponsors of the PBB, Pink it to the Limit Marathon, and Cartwheels for a Cure.
