“Every Day May Not Be a Good Day, But There is Good in Every Day.”

Emma enjoys playing games like “Sorry” and “Uno” with her Mom. Her favorite movie is “Facing the Giants.” On TV, she likes to watch “Liv and Maddie.” Emma said, “Meeting friends here at the house has been the best part. People like Emily, ‘Miss’ Sherri, Luz, and Jan. I never want to forget meeting Brock, my best friend. We started treatment the same day and met here.” 

Emma comes from a family of 7: her parents, John and Jenny, and Emma’s four siblings --Sam, Sarah, Grace, and Hannah. While at RMHC Memphis, Emma enjoys doing arts and crafts. She said, “It is fun living here and being 14. It is peaceful most of the time. “ Emma enjoys game night and says Bingo is one of the best things here. Eventually, Emma wants to be a Child Life Specialist at the hospital doing art therapy. 

When asked, “what keeps you positive?” Jenny answered, “The LORD. He is our 
strength. My strength left a long time ago but if I empty myself and let him fill it, I can make it.”  Then she quotes a piece of art that Emma made her which said, “Every day may not be a good day, but there is good in every day.”
