Pablove Across America 2011 Day 16 Afternoon Dedication: Emma Wheeler

Jeff takes us on a tour of historic Muscle Shoals Studios, where some of the most legendary music in rock and soul has been recorded. We stopped by the studios to take a tour and film a dedication to one of our favorite kids: Emma Wheeler! Emma is 10 years old and from Rehoboth, Massachusetts. She was originally diagnosed with Wilms Tumor in October 2009. Emma and her family attended our Wilms Tumor Symposium last year where Emma had a blast jumproping with volunteers while her parents had access to in-depth information on Wilms. That information and the relationship with doctors was crucial when Emma relapsed in March. She completed high dose chemotherapy and double stem cell transplant in Chicago this August. Emma is beautiful, smart, athletic and just wants to get back to living the life the a kid! In her hometown 5th grade begins middle school and she recently started going back to school, which is GREAT news!
