Never have we used Children's Hospital the way we have this year. Emily had 3 procedures and 3 surgeries this year. Emily has been dealing with her ACNES Nerve Entrapment since January. We do not know why the nerves keep getting trapped, but Dr. Mooney and the doctors in the Chronic Pain Clinic are doing everything they can to offer Emily relief. Unfortunately, Emily continues to experience daily pain. She works hard to keep up her grades, play sports, work, volunteer, watching her do all of this while in constant pain is absolutely inspiring.
Emily has goals to be a doctor one day, if anything, this illness has pushed her to want to give back, to do good for kids the way Boston Children's Hospital has been good for her.
Emily is joining the team for the 6th year and has raised over $10,000 in her first 5 years!
This year, Emily is hoping to raise at least $1,000, please consider helping her hit her goal.
