Emily relapsed after 16 months of treatment with cancer and was given only a few weeks to live. Later on, the University of Pennsylvania’s Children’s Hospital helped her with the clinical trials.
Moreover, Emily was the first child to get T cells from the University of Pennsylvania, the T cells genetically recognize cancer cells. In 2014, the Whitehead family has started a foundation to support pediatric cancer research. After over eight years since her treatment, Whitehead remains cancer-free.
The Emily Whitehead Foundation (EWF) is a nonprofit company. EWF’s main purpose is to raise money and awareness for childhood cancers and cancers research.
Emily’s video relating to the T-cell story, facing more relapses and fewer options has inspired many children to have the motivation to learn about children’s Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia.
EWF offers a variety of services and helps others like sharing experiences about the therapy, encouragement, community supports, cancer research, and more.
