As many of you know, Miles works for an incredible organization called The Garland Company. Back in August, 35 members of the Garland family attended a cancer research benefit in Emily’s honor. The Garland Company’s show of support for Emily and Miles did not end there though. Since September, members of the Garland family from around the United States, Canada, and the United Kingdom have been providing meals during the nadir and recovery weeks following Emily’s chemotherapy. Over 50 meals from Miles and Emily’s favorite eateries around Los Angeles have been delivered right to their front door. This amazing gesture has not only kept Emily and Miles well nourished, but without having to think about what they’re going to do for dinner, it’s also given them back precious time to spend together and to focus on much larger day to day challenges.
The Garland Company hosted their annual sales convention in January and Sean Mulligan (i.e. Garland family member extraordinaire who has been coordinating the company’s efforts) gathered Miles and Emily’s meal contributors from around the world together for a big group photo.
