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.
