About Me


I’m Emily. I am 32 years old, soon to be 33. I am a mother of a darling two-year-old boy, and I have an incredible husband – they are the loves of my life. Before my son was born, I was an elder law attorney in New York City, managing guardianships and public benefits for incapacitated adults. I was a college swimmer and completed the New York City Marathon in 2011.

And I have breast cancer. Stage 4 metastatic breast cancer.

I am documenting this journey from diagnosis to treatment, to navigating life with cancer and a young child. I believe that these stories need to be told, again, and again, so that no one ever feels alone walking this path. I hope this little corner of the internet provides information, respite, and hope.
