Over the past 2 weeks Emalia has met with doctors to determine her options for treatment. After receiving tough news from her most recent CT scan, she was spurred to undergo a localized treatment called chemoembolization on Monday.
It is intense chemotherapy injected directly into the liver. It mandated 2 nights in the hospital. We’re hoping she will get out today, but the side effects have been rough, and we’ll wait until she’s 100% ready to go home. She will need to do another one of these treatments in about a month.
Christy Churchill has been out helping with Kahala and the amazing Jess Grieco-Casey has been incredible in supporting the family too. Thank you all for the donations, cards, and prayers. Aloha, Beck

UPDATE 11-14-13: Em is home from the hospital and feeling better- still some pain but the Nausea is much diminished.


  1. Hi Em! Hope you are feeling better after the tough treatment. We are all thinking of you every day! Sending love, love, love!

    Eric, Theresa, Anna & Elias
