After successful heart surgery and regaining her hearing, she became sick in Spring of 2009 with Parvovirus (Fifth Disease). Emily was in and out of the hospital and ultimately lost her battle on December 11, 2009. Emmy was 2.5 yrs old when she passed. She was the light of our life and always will be.

In our attempt to honor Emmy’s life, we started Corrigan Care and now take care of more than 100 children each year and countless parents. We are opening Emmy’s Academy, an early intervention and educational childcare center in Roswell on July 17th. This new service will provide full time, early intervention and educational childcare to kids with special needs and their peers! Emmy has touched so many lives and brought so many people together. Let’s help Emmy’s friends develop so they can enjoy life just as Emmy would have wanted to!
