Jess first met Embree at one of her first hospital donations at UNC Children's Hospital.
Embree and Jess quickly became friends!
Embree was cancer free for a few years and even joined Jess on the TODAY Show when they did a feature about Headbands of Hope. Unfortunately, Embree's cancer relapsed earlier this summer. She's now back in treatment for Leukemia at UNC Hospital.
In honor of Embree's birthday today, we're donating 50% of our sales to her family to help cover some medical expenses. If you wish to donate more to the family, visit their Caring Bridge page here.
