A local Facebook group is working hard to give a Bigfork girl some love and support.
In January, 11 year old Ember Fortuna was diagnosed with a rare immune disease, hemophagocytic lymphohistiocytosis (HLH), and anaplastic large-cell lymphoma. She's been receiving treatment at Seattle's Children's hospital. Her family has been staying at the Ronald McDonald House, and say nine year old brother Logan is waiting to donate bone marrow to Ember, the only cure for her disease.
Family friend and cancer survivor Faith Ask set up the Facebook group "Ember's Angels," and says she felt compelled to help the Fortuna's in any way she could. The group has over 300 supporters who donate money, care packages, and other items that are sent to the family.
For more information on how to donate, visit the Ember's Angels Facebook page.
