Unfortunally, her family recently recieved the terrible news that their youngest daughter, Emma, has a rapid growing tumor on her brain called Diffuse intrinsic pontine glima tumor. The tumor is very rare and is inoperable. Three year old little Emma has only up to a year left with her family. They could all use your prayers during their time of need. She will need to go through radiation for 6 weeks to try to help shrink the tumor and give her a little more time.
Teal's husband, Jay, has taking a leave of absence from his job to be able to spend as much time with his family as possible. This will be a very difficult time emotionally as well as financially."
I quoted this from a page made by Teal's friend. I am asking everyone to please help this family & buy a shirt. Not only are you helping a family struggling with the worst news a parent could ever receive, but you're also helping spread awareness for the NUMBER ONE DISEASE KILLER IN CHILDREN! This is a living nightmare, I ask everyone to please help this family.
