MADISON, Wis. - A terminally ill Wisconsin 7-year-old is asking for letters from dogs to comfort her.

Emma Mertens, of Hartland, is fighting a very rare and inoperable brain tumor called DIPG, according to a go fund me (link removed for VJ) which has raised more than $82,000.

The family is asking for financial support, but they are also asking for help in comforting Emma, which they are hoping comes in the form of letters from dogs.

A flier that has been making the rounds on social media says, “Attention dog parents! Emma Mertens is a 7-yaer-old little girl who is terminally ill and wants comfort in the form of letters from dogs.”

Anyone can send a letter from their dog, either written or in email form with photos or videos attached, to Emma Mertens, PO Box 230, Hartland, WI 53029 or at emmalovesdogs7@gmail.com.

According to Emma’s CaringBridge page, her email inbox was completely full Tuesday with more than 2,500 emails, and so was her PO Box.-
