Help write a better story for children fighting cancer
Childhood cancer patients often follow a similar storyline: diagnosis followed by treatment with chemotherapy or radiation. However, even when children reach remission, many develop long-term side effects or secondary cancers as a result of these harsh treatments. We want to write a better story for these heroes – one with less toxic treatments and without fear of relapse, or loss of life.
Join patients, survivors, families, physicians, researchers and Emily Whitehead Foundation supporters as we pen the next chapter of childhood cancer research at the 2017 Believe Ball.
The 2017 Believe Ball is the Emily Whitehead Foundation’s largest fundraising event to date. In its inaugural year, the Believe Ball will bring together T cell therapy patients and their families with the doctors, scientists, researchers, and others who helped develop this therapy.
Open to the public, this elegant and inspirational evening will feature a cocktail reception, seated dinner, silent auction and raffle, entertainment, and compelling stories from childhood cancer patients and their families.
The Believe Ball will support our mission of funding childhood cancer research that will lead to the discovery of more targeted and less toxic treatments for children, such as T cell therapy, and raise awareness for childhood cancer, cancer research, and clinical trials.
Together, we can write a better story for these heroes!
