Prayers Please

This little girl and her cousin were in my CCD class last year and I went to high school with her dad and uncle.

Emma Hobert Fundraiser:
A Night Out For Emma....
The family and friends of the Hobert family are holding a fundraiser for
Emma Hobert, a third grader at McMahon School (Holyoke). This beautiful
little girl needs our support. Just a month ago, eight year old Emma was living life
to the fullest and was very active in sports. However, in the last few weeks everything
has changed and Emma is now battling Lyme Disease and Guillain -Barre Syndrome (GBS)
(http://www.ninds.nih.gov/disorders/gbs/gbs.htm).
GBS has many serious complications, and now Emma must re-learn all the things we take forgranted ... She has just been moved to Spaulding Rehab Hospital in Boston to learn to sit and
walk and eat all over again. The road ahead will be long and hard on her and her family.
So we are asking for your help to support her family.

A fundraiser is planned at the Holyoke Knights of Columbus on Friday, May 29th at 6:00 P.M. This fundraiser is to help the family with medical costs along with any
other equipment or modifications that may be needed to help Emma get back on the
field again...There will be music, raffles and food. Tickets are $10.00 and can be purchased in
advance or at the door. Donations can be made directly to:
The Emma Hobert Fundraiserc/o Holyoke Credit Union 490 Westfield Rd
Holyoke, MA 01040
Emma is the daughter of Paul and Cindy Hobert. Many of you know the Hobert
family from Hobert's Funeral Home, a local business that has been inHolyoke for over 100 years. Many of you also know Cindy from caring for yourchildren at Holyoke Pediatrics for many years. Now is our chance to help the Hobert family through this tough time.

Thank you for your support for Emma and her family.
