The cause – Emma Alcott of Willowbrook
24-year-old mother of two young children children, ages 3 and 7, battling Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Emma Alcott was diagnosed in May 2018 and completed what was believed to be her last chemo session in November after six months of a heavy chemotherapy cycle. But that did not work – so we move to stem cells.
The stem cell transplant will rebuild her bone marrow, which has been wiped out by a high dose of chemotherapy, and the procedure will require up to three months of hospitalization.
She said the late-stage diagnosis may be related to why the treatments haven’t been successful. She now has a 30 to 40 per cent chance of survival
