Emmeline's wish takes her and family to Disney!

Wishes Can Happen sent 11 year old Emmeline and her five brothers and sisters to Disney for her special wish. Diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor earlier this year, this wish trip gave the family the chance to be together without hospitals or doctors and they made priceless memories. Here’s the family at Akron-Canton Airport after their early morning surprise limo ride. Emmeline was many things – generous to a fault, for sure, and she raised money for many good causes in her young life. She had a smile that could light up a room, and enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. She loved to make special cards for people, and actually had a dream of having her own card shop one day. Prior to her passing, she realized that dream and was able to operate Emmeline’s Card Shop & More for a full day. You can read more about it by clicking on The Canton Repository link below."
