10-year-old Emma Harper was born with cerebral palsy and micro duplication of chromosome 22Q 11.2 that affects her ability to speak and walk.
Right now, Emma can only walk short distances with assistance, but her parents, Micah and Tara Harper, are hoping that will change soon.
They've found a doctor in California who can perform a transfusion that could help restore the areas in Emma's brain that are damaged and allow her to talk and walk again over time.
You can find out more about Emma on the family's Facebook page, "Help Emma Find Her Voice." And on Thursday, they will have a ministry kick off party at the Historic Palace Theatre. There will be Bingo and a movie starting at 6:30. All proceeds will go towards the medical and travel expenses for Emma and her family. Whatever exceeds the $25,000 it will go back to the Give One ministry of Stephens County Worship Center for other children in need.
