This is the 7th year that the Emma's Light Team will walk in the Light The Night Walk - we have raised over $37,000 over the past 6 walks. Our goal this year is $8,500!



On June 18, 2007, our three year-old daughter Emma was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia. When the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS) was founded in 1949, our daughter’s diagnosis would have been a death sentence. However, thanks to life saving research funded by LLS, Emma is now a seven-year survivor, and children like her have a 90% chance of recovery. As encouraging as this is, there are thousands of other children and adults suffering right now with blood cancers whose prospect for survival is not nearly as promising. Please help us eradicate this dreadful disease.

Thank you – Ernie & Gale Boughman



Emma was diagnosed with acute lymphoblastic leukemia June 18, 2007. In the years that have followed, her young faith, trust, and courage have inspired many. Just as Jesus said "let your light shine" in Matthew 5:16, Emma beamed as a candle burning bright; loving and trusting Jesus to fight the battle for her. Leukemia did not brake this little girl but rather served to show others "Emma's Light." Emma is now leukemia-free having completed chemotherapy on August 23, 2009 - She is a survivor!!


This is Emma's seventh year captaining the Emma's Light Team. Over the past six years, the Emma's Light Team has raised $37,000 and consistently places among the top teams in South Carolina. This year, the Emma's Light Team is raising the bar even higher with a goal of $8,500!


Emma would love to have you walk with her on September 25, 2014 at the BMW Performance Center in Greer, SC. Join the Emma's Light Team by clicking the "Walk with Us" link at the top of this page.
