OUR FUNDRAISING STORY

Hartland, Wisconsin | Created: September 3, 2019

The mission of Emma Loves Dogs is to provide financial assistance to organizations that share the same passion that Emma had for helping animals, such as police K9 units and non-kill animal shelters.

Emma’s Story

Emma Mertens was an 8-year-old girl from Hartland, WI, who was diagnosed with a DIPG Brain Tumor in early 2019. She fought to live her life to the fullest every day up until the night she passed away on November 17th, 2019.

Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma (DIPG) is a type of tumor that starts in the brain stem, the part of the brain just above the back of the neck and connected to the spine. The brain stem controls breathing, heart rate and the nerves and muscles that help us see, hear, walk, talk and eat. There is still no cure for this tumor. To read more about her story, click here.

Emma had a passion for animals, especially dogs. Emma also loved helping others and, in lieu of gifts, had asked for donations to local animal shelters for her birthdays. On her 8th birthday, we launched the Emma Loves Dogs Foundation to provide financial assistance to those in need that share the same passion for helping animals that Emma had.

Emma Loves Dogs Foundation will work to achieve its mission in Emma’s honor.
