Ember is ﬁve years old. Embers family found out about Kids Kicking Cancer through Beaumont Children’s Hospital. As Ember started to attend weekly classes, she made a group of friends who have gone through the same thing as she has –which is not something she had in school or the neighborhood. Not only did Ember make a good group of friends through the program but she also started becoming attached to the staﬀ members and everyone involved in the program.
One of the most valuable aspects of the Kids Kicking Cancer to Ember is power breathing. Through all of her treatments, she uses her power breathing to push away the pain. She also encourages others, like her family, to power breath if they are in pain or get upset.
Kids Kicking Cancer’s martial arts class provides Ember with an opportunity to be a leader. She is so comfortable in classes and at any event that is held by Kids Kicking Cancer. After coming home from class Ember never fails to practice her karate and show oﬀ what she has been learning.
