QUITMAN, Ark. (KTHV) – If you entered the Quitman High School gym on Friday, you would have seen a winter wonderland. A carpet of snow blanketed the gym floor, a machine pumped snow into the air, and one very popular song from the movie “Frozen” belted through the speakers as students and faculty gathered together to celebrate Emma Day.

What is Emma Day? It’s a very special celebration of one tough little girl who is battling stage-four osteosarcoma, a type of bone cancer. The Panama, Okla., native has been receiving treatments at UAMS right here in Little Rock and happened to meet one of Quitman’s teachers—Theresa Hawks—who was undergoing her own therapy for cervical cancer.
