An irreplaceable love...
Emma was just 13 when she passed away, soon after Christmas Day.
It’s been five long years since Stuart and Leanne last held their darling daughter in their arms. They will live with their grief forever.
Emma was diagnosed with a rare cancer called rhabdomyosarcoma. She endured 11 surgeries, two years of chemotherapy, and 55 sessions of radiation.
What made Emma extraordinary was her big heart. Even after having a bad day at the hospital, she would make an effort to visit the younger kids at the oncology ward to give them a hug and tell them it was going to be alright.
