THE STORY:

Emily Whitehead Foundation wrote -

Emily Whitehead is a 3-time leukemia survivor.  She was the first child in the world to receive a breakthrough T-cell immunotherapy to finally beat her leukemia.  Emily is alive today because of cancer research. We saw firsthand how cancer research is saving lives; however, there are still children losing their lives every day because of limited treatment options for high-risk patients like Emily. Children who have their cancer return are harder to treat because their cancer becomes resistant to standard therapies. Cutting edge treatments like the T-cell therapy are needed to help cure these children but funding is limited. Childhood cancer receives only 4% of the National Cancer Institute budget for research. Many researchers rely on grants from non-profit organizations and private donors who are dedicated to raising funds for childhood cancer research.
