Stay strong!

A few days ago, little Emily got a tumour in her abdomen removed in the UK. Her mother, Vanessa, took to Facebook to say that it “was even more successful than we imagined.” But unfortunately, things took a little turn for the worse.

“Emily is stable, but she is still in critical condition as she had to be operated on again; complications arose after the operation,” Vanessa told Gwida.mt. “There was some improvement but she’s still got a long way to go,” she said, while asking locals for their prayers.

We’re rooting for you, girl! You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
