In early 2012, Emma was diagnosed with cystic fibrosis. This condition clogs the lungs with mucus and leads to intestinal and digestive issues as well as life-threatening lung infections. Emma’s condition was so bad that no nutrients were being absorbed into her body at all and she had to be put on a regimen of enzymes to correct the depleted nutrients. She also uses a nebulizer and a percussion vest to help break up the mucus in her lungs.
Emma had a blast on her wish trip to the set of NCIS. She arrived at CBS Studios in a limo and was given a VIP tour of each NCIS set. She especially enjoyed her visit to Abby’s closet to try on some gothic boots and walking into Abby and Ducky’s lab, where she happily laid out on an autopsy table for a picture. During the tour, Emma watched scenes being filmed and met up with actress Pauley Perrette, actor David McCallum, and writer Scott Williams. She was also introduced to actor Mike Weatherly and star Mark Harmon, who was so happy to meet Emma that he wanted her to stay on the set all day and hang out with the cast. Emma was on Could Nine!
