A 7-year-old girl named Emma Merten out of Wisconsin was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor this year. Emma loves dogs, but sadly her family is incredibly allergic. So instead of getting one, Emma asked for photos of dogs and people delivered.
According to Sunny Skyz:
Dog owners worldwide responded to the request, sending Emma more than 200,000 photos, letters, stuffed animals and well wishes.
But Emma's getting more than just mail.
The Animal Clinic in Sussex gave Emma a day she will never forget by making her a guest veterinarian for the day.
Nearly 40 police departments from across Wisconsin stopped by the Mertens family house last weekend — with over 35 K-9 dogs in tow.
While Emma may be facing a tough road, her family is staying optimistic.
"All of this love for Emma is giving us ideas on how to pay it forward," Emma's dad wrote on Facebook. "God has picked us for a reason. I feel it is because we can handle it and WE CAN BEAT THIS!"
