    Emily Samuelson tweeted earlier this month: "It's official! I'm a UM [Michigan] graduate. =)" and re. this year's Skate for Hope: "It may be one of the last times I perform! =("

    I've been a couple times, and really loved each of the shows I've attended. Nice mix of headline skaters and kids and adult skaters who want to help support a great cause - often a cause that is very personal to the skaters. The group numbers for the non-elite skaters are well organized and are very sweet. It's great to see so many skaters return for this show even when they're not otherwise competing.

    [Whee, happy to see Emily skating! ]
    [
    I wondered what she was up to. Does she have a job lined up now that she graduated and said it may be the last time she performs? Hard to believe there is just no male ice dancer available to make an arrangement with. Nice to see Rachel has kept at it as well.

    EDIT: OOPS, I thought you were talking about Emily Hughes; re-read and see you meant Emily Samuelson.

    Columbus Dispatch article with quotes by breast cancer survivor Amy Hughes, mother of Sarah and Emily: http://www.dispatch.com/content/stor...undraiser.html
    Excerpt:
    Advocacy has been important to the Hughes family since Amy, who is in remission, received a diagnosis of stage III breast cancer.

    As 12-year-old Sarah’s skating career was taking off, Amy had bone-marrow and stem-cell transplants as part of an experimental treatment.

    Skate for Hope, Emily said, is about “everyone who has been through a similar experience and the power of us all coming together.”

    It also offers a chance to return to the ice for Sarah, 28, a Yale University graduate, and Emily, 24, an alumna of Harvard University. Both have been focused on other goals, with Emily employed as a business analyst at Deloitte Consulting and Sarah working on a book and documentary about the seven American women who won Olympic figure-skating gold medals.

    Amy Hughes is thankful that her daughters continue to discuss her experience and hopes that the young girls at Skate for Hope are comforted by their family’s example.

    “They see Emily and Sarah’s mother — she had the treatment, and she’s still here,” she said. “ The more you talk about it, the less scary it is.”
