Emily’s Story

Young Emily Lever holds the unenviable record as the only person in the world to be living simultaneously with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia and Dravet Syndrome. As the face of the 2019 Nine My Room Telethon, spirited Emily, 11, embodies the courage and determination of all the precious young lives who are being treated by one of My Room’s major beneficiaries, Monash Children’s Hospital.

Acute Lymphoblastic Leukaemia is a cancer of the blood and bone marrow, while Dravet Syndrome is an extremely rare and severe form of epilepsy affecting around one in every 40,000 births. One hundred per cent of the money raised from the Telethon will go to My Room, a volunteer-led organisation created to support the families of children like Emily while also providing desperately needed research funds in the quest for a 100 per cent cure rate for childhood cancers. Emily has spent much of her life in and out of hospital. But illness aside, she is just like most other young girls. She loves singing, music and dancing, as well as being a passionate supporter of the Geelong Football Club. The money raised from the auction of this property will make an enormous difference to Emily and hundreds of children like her who are treated each year.

When you decide to make a bid at the auction on August 24, you can do so knowing that your purchase will help to give children like Emily the best opportunity possible to grow up to lead happy, healthy and fulfilling lives.
