Some People Call Me Mom

The internet IS awesome. Seeing this proved it to me.
So glad to hear that Emily got to have a little fresh air this weekend.
Thanks for the update.


I just checked the CarePages post and Emily looks great!! Her treatment and the fresh air has really brought some color back to her cheeks. What a beautiful family. So many of us are pulling for them. Thank you for keeping us posted!


Emily this was clearly your calling. No one could have guessed however many years ago that you would be chosen to do this.

I will continue to check on Emily and look forward to reading about her progress. I look forward to your postings too. It's fun reading about your wardrobe adventures and Asher's accomplishments.

Keep up the good work!


I've been following since you announced what's going on and I am just floored at YOUR outpouring of love and support for your friends and I think it's AWESOME how you've used your blog to help them. God is totally using you in this awful situation and I'm so glad that you just went for it. I know I don't even know you but I'm just so proud of you! You have really blessed me (as a random offshoot of the blessing you've bestowed on the Mandell family). I hope that if I ever get an opportunity to help someone like this that I am able to do what you have done.
I agree with Amy. Keep up the good work!
Love, Manda

That's awesome and you're awesome for spearheading this and also keeping us updated. Keep up the good work and God bless you and the the Mandell's and Emily especially.

So awesome! :D

The internet so rocks. I have also been watching the CarePages site and she does look fantastic for someone going through this. She is so sweet. :)


Wow, that is a lot! I am happy for you... You must have lots of friends out in the world, who you don't even know about!


Geez ... I cry every time I read your site now. Even when it's relatively good news (like 25K ... OMG - that's awesome). Anyway, I know you are doing this for all the right reasons and don't want the spotlight on you, but I just want to say thanks for doing all of this for little Emily. To think that one person can generate so much money and support is totally inspiring. And I think it speaks to your character and popularity that you've been able to make it happen. So thanks.

This is my first time visiting your site and I'm amazed at this story. Puts perspective where I've had none. Thank you for being the person you are and driving this out there! I'll be visiting BofA tomorrow morning.

Bloghopping and landed here. What a blessing you are to your friends. God bless you. And prayers for Emily and her family from Maui.



WOW. I came over here by way of Chirky, and I'm so impressed that you've raised that much money!

The internet really, truly is amazing.

I don't have all that many readers, but I plan to post your friends' story one day next week in hopes of getting more donations. :)

I work for a major bank in the bank by mail department of all things.
Branches can search for account numbers by first and last names.. so all they should need is Emily's name.
I would say that if you tell them the situation you can get them to search a lil harder for you, so that the family's privacy is protected!!! That sweet baby had all my prayers.. helpful hint with there names being common theya re going to need something else to verify its them, address, zipcode and or state any of those three should work to narrow it down
