2020 Calendar Kids Art Contest Winner
Congratulations to Emme Oberbreckling from Mechanicsville, Iowa for being selected as the Cover Artist for the 2020 Calendar! Learn more about Emme and the inspiration about her winning artwork, "Transplant Love" below.
Artist: Emme Oberbreckling, Age 9
by Emme Oberbreckling
Emme painted "Transplant Love" on the last day she was at the hospital after her kidney transplant. She is only 9 years old and now gets to enjoy all the things she wasn’t able to before her transplant like swimming and eating things she wasn’t allowed. Emme’s advice to other kids with kidney disease is "Stay strong and stay positive and laugh."
Congratulations Emme! We can’t wait to see you in Washington, DC in October for The Hope Affair.
