Blog

Welcome to Emmy’s blog. Here you can read all about Emmy’s story from as far back as Emmy’s diagnosis back in March 2016 up until the present day. The blog was regularly updated by Emmy when she was alive and whilst there has been a small hiatus, I plan to continue updating the blog indefinitely with news on upcoming events, future fundraising, new product release and book launches as well as much much more. You can also follow us on Facebook by searching for our EJTandemonium page.

We love to hear from you so please get in touch if there’s anything you want to ask or query regarding any of the topics discussed.
