Brave Little Emily: Battling Leukemia with Grace

Updated: Jan 17

Hi there, meet Emily and her family, whom I had the privilege of connecting with at the end of 2020. I got to know them at church, and that day, her parents shared the heart-wrenching journey they've been on since Emily was diagnosed with leukemia in 2019. She was just a little 3-year-old girl, and that diagnosis shook their world.

In those challenging times, tears flowed freely, exhaustion seemed never-ending, and the path ahead was a bewildering maze of uncertainty. Witnessing their little one suffer was an unbearable pain that etched itself into their daily existence.

During these moments, I silently prayed and made a promise to give them a gift of encouragement when Emily got better, a family photoshoot. Fast forward to September 2023, after the turbulent journey, I finally had the chance to capture their family's resilience in a series of photographs. However, our time together was more than just a photoshoot, it was an opportunity for them to share the depths of what they had been through. I felt honoured and blessed to listen to their story. I deeply appreciate their big hearts to share with others.

It's amazing how in the dark, they clung to hope and their faith in Jesus. Their journey is a testament to the goodness of God, the power of love, and the hope that never truly fades.

If you're on the same page, don't hesitate to get in touch. I'll be happy to connect you with them. Shared burdens make the load a little lighter.
