This week's Kid Of The Week is....
I would like to nominate my daughter, 8 year-old Emma Detlefsen of Berne as the Kid of the Week. Emma was born with a disease called Primary Lymphedema. Though it would be easy to let this disease get the best of her, she faces each day with a bravery I will never know. Emma is a Youth Ambassador for the Lymphatic Education & Research Network…at the age of 6 she began fundraising and walking for the LE&RN annual walk across the Brooklyn Bridge, she became part of a worldwide campaign to name March 6th World Lymphedema Day at our Capitol, Emma traveled to Washington, D.C. as a 7 year-old lobbyist in support of The Lymphedema Treatment Act, she was also awarded Albany County Citizen of the Month by Albany County Executive Dan McCoy and actress Kathy Bates dedicated her Hollywood Walk of Fame Star to Emma along with her family. She’s an inspiration to all who know her and Emma would like you all to know that March 6th is World Lymphedema Day!
