What is Team Emmett?

Emmett, Wendy, and Quinn

Emmett James Stallings IV passed away from esophageal cancer four months before his 32nd birthday, two months before his 9th wedding anniversary, and two weeks before his son's 4th birthday.

That should not happen.

Team Emmett began as a network of friends and family supporting Emmett in his battle with cancer. After Emmett's death, Team Emmett became a 501(c)(3) non-profit dedicated to the elimination of esophageal cancer, primarily through funding innovative research, but also through raising awareness and sharing stories.

Our goal is to one day wake up in a world where no one loses their spouse, father, or friend to esophageal cancer.
