UNION — Polly Sherfield contacted The Union Daily Times regarding her friend, Emily Burnett.
“We are also known as ‘Thelma and Louise,’” Polly said.
Polly said Emily is currently in remission from a rare form of leukemia. Emily spent over a month in Gibbs Cancer Center and has been back twice. She had an appointment in Wake Forest Friday, and she will go back for a hospital visit on Wednesday.
“She is in remission, and we’re trying to keep her in remission,” Polly said.
Polly mentioned that Emily is thankful for all of the prayers, and Polly asked for continued prayer for Emily. Polly also mentioned Emily is an avid reader of The Union Daily Times.
“She had to get a Union Daily Times every day when she was in the cancer center,” Polly said.
Polly hopes Emily is surprised when she picks up today’s edition to see this showing of love and support.
