The Emily Whitehead Foundation is celebrating our second anniversary since launching in January 2015!
What had once been a dream has now been a reality for the past two years—and what a journey it has been. Within our first year we were thrilled to present a $100,000 grant to Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia (CHOP) to help further the T-cell therapy research of Dr. Stephan Grupp and his team. It has also been our privilege to travel the U.S. and Europe to spread awareness and share Emily’s story—experiences which have influenced our recent rebranding and mission to inspire others to take an active role in finding the cure for childhood cancer.

Thank you to all who have contributed to making the Emily Whitehead Foundation’s first couple years such a success. We look forward to entering our third year with our new look and another exciting project currently in the works—to be announced at the start of next week!
