Emma Baker, from Omaha, Nebraska, was diagnosed with glioblastoma multiforme, a malignant brain tumor, in January 2018, at age 14. Emma had her tumor surgically resected, then underwent radiation and chemotherapy.
She is now nearly four years removed from her diagnosis and early in 2021 Emma and her family heard the words “no evidence of disease” at her check-up. This is every cancer patient’s dream. She is was able to attend prom in 2021 and was even part of the royalty.
