One picture says a thousand words. What a special message from our CEO, Karen Terra, about one of many touching moments this past holiday season. In her own words: "My Christmas present is the little girl with me in the photo. She is medically fragile, has been dealing with life-threatening illnesses since she was born, and has pretty much lived in the hospital most of her life. Several years ago, when the doctors told her mom that she would never walk, we bought her a red wagon so her mom could pull her around the hospital halls. I literally broke down in tears when I saw her last week and she WALKED toward me to give me a hug, with the biggest smile on her face. A true Christmas miracle and best present ever" #enfhope#miracle#childhoodcancer... See MoreSee Less
Today, there's a special celebration up in heaven. Emilio's 27th birthday! His time on earth was short but the legacy he left is endless. We remember him today and always as he continues to be our inspiration. Happy Birthday beloved Emilio! #enfhope#happybirthday#legacy#remembering... See MoreSee Less
I remember this beautiful face and smile, his laughter when I would come into his room at the hospital. He was so special and I loved him, and his wonderful parents. Can't believe so many years have passed. I am so proud of what they have created to honor Emilio.💗
Today I also honor his parents - Diane and Richard - who unwaveringly give their unconditional love honoring Emilio.
Everyone here at the Emilio Nares Foundation wishes you a peaceful and amazing 2022! May the new year bring nothing but good things to YOU and the whole world. Cheers to a wonderful 2022!!! #enfhope#HappyNewYear#hope... See MoreSee Less
