The Emily Whitehead Foundation is a non-profit that raises awareness and funds for childhood cancer research. Emily Whitehead is a three-time cancer survivor and was the first child in the world to receive CAR-T cell therapy, a form of immunotherapy. Emily is now eight years cancer free. The Emily Whitehead Foundation aims to provide funding to researchers to develop innovative and less toxic treatments, such as immunotherapy, for pediatric cancer patients. Co-founders Tom and Kari Whitehead share Emily’s story to inspire others to take action in the fight to cure childhood cancer.
