A Staten Island family is asking for the public's help to get through a medical emergency.
The Gagliardi family has set up a GoFundMe page for 14 -year -old Emily Rose. She's been diagnosed with Stage 4 Ewing's Sarcoma. It's a rare
type of cancer that occurs in bones or in the soft tissue around the bones. Emily is currently in the
8th grade at IS 34 . She would like to attend Tottenville High School in the Fall. Her dream is to be a school counselor so she can help kids. Her treatment includes intense chemotherapy and radiation and possible surgery to remove
any remaining cancer . Both her parents will need to take significant amounts of time off
from work to help with Emily's treatment . They will not get paid during this time. All of this will take a financial toll on the family. If you can help out, head to www.gofundme.com , search for Emily Rose Gagliardi.
