Emilie Update!
Apr 25, 2011 by Stephanie Erickson

Miss Emilie Rose celebrated her 11th birthday on the 14th of this month!! She is doing amazing! The most recent news is her neurologist reporting reflexes in her knees and one ankle! Our family is very grateful.

On Saturday, April 9th, Emilie and her whole family traveled to Windsor for a team training bright and early! It was such an honor to have them there. EVERYONE was so excited to meet them all. They were welcomed like rock stars! My favorite running moment of all time - my nephew Paul pushing his sister in her wheelchair to run beside me with Nicolas, my other nephew!! Those kids are the cutest and Emilie has the best brothers in the world!

The Make A Wish Foundation has spread their magic to the Erickson's and Emilie is going to Disneyworld! woo hoo!

Thank you all for your support! If you haven't made a donation yet, please consider it. Your donation can save lives!

Running like a girl for Emilie!
Apr 13, 2011

Dear Friends & Family,

Two years ago in June I asked you to support me in my first fundraising effort for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) by running with Team In Training.  I completed my first half marathon in October 2009 thanks to TNT and raised $2500 to support the LLS thanks to all of you!  Since then, I've completed three half marathons as well as mentored for one season with Team In Training.  

This season my reason for running is personal - last June our family found out our niece, Emilie Rose Erickson, was diagnosed with Leukemia. Since that time she has gone through countless tests, treatments, and other experiences you wouldn’t wish on a ten year old. As a Team In Training participant and mentor, I’ve met and listened to numerous honorees (Leukemia & Lymphoma patients and survivors) - now Emilie is both our team and my personal honoree.  

I have once again joined TNT and committed to raising $2250 for the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. I will be running my first full marathon, the San Diego Rock & Roll marathon, on June 5th 2011. I never could have anticipated that I'd be running a full 26.2 miles!  With Emilie as my personal honoree I will try my best to finish the race. 

I can't begin to understand how a ten year old girl could have such strength, grace, and perseverance in battling leukemia. She endured countless procedures, chemotherapy, and living away from home and her brothers. With your help, I’ll raise much-needed funds used to help eradicate this horrible disease.

Thank you for your support and please make your tax deductible donation today. Your donation makes a difference!

Thank you!

Steph Erickson

    "I am so proud of you Stephanie. I remember you telling me during your first 1/2 marathon (around mile 12) that you would never be talked into a full marathon. And, look at you now! So awesome! I can't afford much right now, but thought that $10 in honor of Miss Emilie could help. Love you so much and here's to kicking this disease's butt so Emilie can be healthy and enjoy her childhood. XOXO."
