Partners & Sponsors

Community Partner

Rock City is proud to partner with Emily’s Power for a Cure during the Fairytale Nights event. Emily was diagnosed with Stave IV Neuroblastoma in October 2005. This beautiful, strong-willed little girl, known as the Pink Power Ranger Princess, fought with everything she had for four months to beat her cancer. On February 20, 2006 while undergoing surgery to remove her tumor, Emily won her battle and went to dance in heaven.

Her family wishes to continue her fight and find a cure for this disease. Emily’s Power for a Cure is her fight against cancer carrying on! While the goal of the foundation is to raise awareness and funds to find a cure for Neuroblastoma, there are more and more immediate needs for families and children fighting this disease. The foundation, Emily’s namesake, was founded in 2006 by Emily’s parents, Jonathon and Wendy Ransom.
