Brooklyn's Story

Four-year-old Brooklyn wears colorful, patterned leggings and never leaves home without slipping on at least one purple item of clothing (in addition to her bright purple shoes).

Along with reading “Five Little Monkeys Jumping on the Bed,” watching “Frozen” and playing with her kitchen set, she also thinks chemo shots, sedation and blood draws are just part of growing up.

Danny's Story

I am Danny Valerius, and I am a 12-year-old seventh grader. I like to do good, learn in school, play lots of basketball, talk to my friends and hang out with my three older brothers. I like the color yellow and try to use it as much as I can at any time. Watching DC and Marvel movies are always fun. My favorite hero is probably Ant-Man or Duke Victory. During the season of winter, I usually cuddle up inside, but occasionally I go outside and play in the snow. I have not gone sledding this year though I plan to.

Emerson's Story

A few weeks before Emerson's 10th birthday, a routine annual eye exam revealed some jumping of her eyes when she tried to focus far to the left or right. At first, the doctor thought there was nothing to worry about and encouraged her to follow up with her pediatrician. After several doctor appointments and an MRI, doctors sat her parents, Gary and Kim, down to tell them the life-changing news - Emerson had a brain tumor.
