Emma McCarron hails from County Monaghan, Ireland. In November 2008, when Emma was 7, she was diagnosed with Neuroblastoma – a rare children’s cancer. Since then, Emma has been attending Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin. She has undergone a gruelling treatment programme, including chemotherapy, surgery, bone marrow transplant and radiotherapy.
Throughout all of this, she has shown great strength, always been in good humour and managed to keep up with school, friends, hobbies and all the normal things girls her age like to do.
Over the last year, Emma became interested in singing. She began to attend singing classes with Monaghan Comhaltas Branch, and joined the Monaghan Community Gospel Choir.
When Emma learnt that some of her relatives wrote songs, played the guitar & sang, she came up with the idea of recording a CD together. So, over the summer, Emma’s great-uncle (Brendan Gallagher) set the wheels in motion, made all the arrangements and the CD was recorded in early August.
When the CD was complete, all involved were very happy with the finished product and decided to sell the CD to raise funds for Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital, Crumlin.
By purchasing Emmas music you can enjoy a wonderful voice and support a worthy cause.
