Meet Miracle Kid Emery Holt


Emery Holt was diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) on December 1, 2015 at age 5. After complaining of back pain, blood work at Shannon Urgent Care lab revealed the diagnosis. Because she was not presenting the typical symptoms associated with ALL, she spent several days at Cook Children’s undergoing additional tests before they began her treatment. Thanks to funding from Children’s Miracle Network, Emery is able to receive some of her treatment at Shannon and stay at home with her two younger brothers. Emery is 6 years old and a first grader at Water Valley. She likes reading, riding her bike, and chocolate ice cream.
