What is Em's Fight Foundation?
Em’s Fight foundation was formed formed by the Pohlschneider Family in Emily Pohlschneider-Edwards memory in 2012 after Emily’s passing in October of 2011. Since the foundation was formed we have helped over 14 families with their cancer fight in the local community. The monetary value totals over $40,000 that we have been able to give to those 19 families.
A little about Emily: Emily was a three sport athlete through High School and went on to be an All-American scholar athlete in college. She was a fierce competitor and never lost her cool while she was competing but off the court she was the most caring and compassionate person that you had ever met. After she graduated she began her 14 year career at Nike, where she held several positions in Production Art and Graphic Design. She was passionate about athletics but also passionate about her family. She loved her daughter Stephanie with all her heart and her goal was to beat cancer and live to tell her story to give others strength and hope. Since she isn’t here to do that, the Pohlschneider family promises to continue to do it for her in her memory. Although her story ended far too early, we continue to have hope for those battling today and want to pass her strength onto them and their families! Emily always continued fighting even until the end and we want to help spread the message that those who are battling cancer are not alone!
