Emily’s story regarding her second bout with cancer and chemo was written and published in the Reno Tahoe Tonight magazine by Oliver X.  While we are no longer writing a column in the Reno Tahoe Tonight, Emily is actively involved with the magazine, particularly in her role as Co-Host of the Reno Tahoe Tonight radio show (see above).  Here is the beautiful prose that Oliver X wrote to promote her needs financially during this difficult time.  Thank you, Oliver.  (Turn to page 44.)
