Springtime “Shop & Share” Honors Brave Leukemia Survivor, 8-year-old Emma
PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL. – Shopping at Lilly Pulitzer is a fun day by itself. But on April 13, shoppers inside the company’s The Gardens Mall location will also be celebrating the life and courage of eight-year-old Emma, who battled leukemia and won.
From 1-5 p.m. on Saturday, April 13, 2019, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society, Palm Beach Area Chapter will hold a Shop & Share in the Lilly Pulitzer boutique, on the lower level of The Gardens Mall, 3101 PGA Boulevard F111, Palm Beach Gardens, FL 33410. Proceeds of all sales from 1 – 5 pm will benefit LLS.
As an incentive for the day, Emma’s story will be shared, reminding shoppers of who they are helping with their support. Emma was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia and underwent two years of chemotherapy to battle the cancer. One of three daughters raised by a single mom, Emma relied upon her family’s love and her positive spirit to overcome the disease.
Emma recently celebrated her eighth birthday as a strong, kind-hearted and capable little girl. From her battle, she learned that life is a gift and that you must help and inspire others face their struggles.
