A couple weeks ago I had the privilege of meeting Emily. She’s such a fun and spunky 3 year old.Greer SC Child Photographer

This precious girl lights up the room with laughter and smiles.

Her mama, Mary, calls her a “Prissy Tom-girl” as she digs in the dirt with her shovels and carries around her purse.

Emily can sing “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star.”  She loves to twirl and dance.   She’s mostly a typical 3 year old.

Except Emily isn’t a typical 3 year old.

She has a rare disease called Eosinophilic Esophagitis.   EoE is an inflammatory disorder where most foods cause white blood cells to attack the esophagus.  Most EoE patients can eat 5 or fewer foods and depend on specialized formula that costs over $700 a month.  There is no cure for EoE and the treatment is incredibly invasive.

Emily’s brave mama is on a mission to help bring awareness and research funds to eosinophilic esophagitis.   Right now at the Bi-lo on Hudson Road in Greer, Mary is hosting a fund raiser called “Hope for Emily.”  You can donate with your cashier at check-out through June 18th.  Here’s a short clip of Mary talking about this fundraiser. 

If Emily’s story touches you, and you’re unable to go to the Hudson Road Bi-lo, you’re welcome to donate to the research fund here.
