[ENDED] The Schwartzman family (NYC)

Emily is a vibrant, happy 3 year old, who arrived to NYC for treatment at the end of March 2015. Emily was diagnosed with cancer six months prior to her arrival and is undergoing a few months-long clinical trial at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in NYC. She loves singing and dancing, playing outside, and is a big fan of pretend play.

Emily came to NYC with her parents, leaving her two older sisters back at home in Israel. We wish for them to be reunited soon, hopefully with a cancer-free Emily!

Important notice for visitors! It’s flu season. Please note that due to a weakened immune system, Emily is not allowed to be near sick people. In fact, she spent the past few months mostly in isolation. If you are coughing, sneezing, have a skin rash or just don’t feel well at the day of your visit, please postpone your visit until you are feeling better. Last minute cancellation are perfectly understandable, acceptable and are the right thing to do if you or your child are not feeling well.

MyChild’sCancer would like to invite our communities to support our families. Please make a donation to MyChild’sCancer OR if you would like to get more personally involved please follow our dedicated Facebook page on which we will post new needs as they come up. Additionally, please re-visit this page to see an updated list of needs as shown here below. You are welcome to fill out and submit the form below with your contact details and the way you wish to help and we will inform the family and get in touch with you as soon as it becomes applicable/relevant.


Following a successful treatment, Emily and her parents returned to Israel. Emily still has a long road ahead, including recovery and getting back to normal life, and we hope that she will remain cancer free.

While here for treatment, the family enjoyed the support of our community. Visit ‘our impact’ page to see what Marina (Emilee’s mom) and other parents had to say about our effect on their lives.

MyChild’sCancer would like to THANK our great community for helping this family in a time of need.
