BENEFITING: EMILY WHITEHEAD FOUNDATION
ORGANIZER: Emily Whitehead
EVENT DATE: Nov 20, 2016
I am running for my 11-year daughter Emily - a 3x leukemia survivor!
Tom, Emily, and I co-founded the Emily Whitehead Foundation. Our primary goal is to raise funds for pediatric cancer research. Emily was the first child to receive T-Cell Therapy (a type of immunotherapy that uses your own body's cells to fight cancer), so we specifically fund T-cell therapy trials and other immunotherapy treatments for children. These treatments are less toxic to children compared to chemotherapy and radiation, and help reduce possible long term side effects.
