Write a Better Story
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.
On September 17, 2022 we celebrated the third chapter of our Emily Whitehead Foundation Believe Ball. It was an absolute honor to share this inspiring evening with so many of our heroes — CAR-T warriors, their families, doctors, researchers, and other important leading characters that are working to develop more targeted and less toxic treatment options for children with cancer.
Thanks to the support of all in attendance, we raised a total exceeding $300,000! Read More.
The First Chapter
On October 28, 2017, our dream of hosting the inaugural Emily Whitehead Foundation Believe Ball became reality. The event raised $450,000 and brought together hundreds of attendees, including CAR-T cell therapy patients, their families, doctors, researchers and others working to find less toxic treatment options for children with cancer.
The Second Chapter
On Thursday, September 16, 2021 we premiered the second chapter of our Emily Whitehead Foundation Believe Ball as a unique and inspiring virtual experience. The program included interactive animations, three CAR-T patient stories, and the introduction of our Pioneer and Fight for Cures Embassador Awards.
