Believe Ball

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.

Important Update:

Due to concerns  associated with the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to move the second chapter of our Emily Whitehead Foundation Believe Ball, originally scheduled for September 2020, to Saturday, September 18, 2021.

Our Mission

The Believe Ball supports our mission of funding childhood cancer research that will lead to the discovery of more targeted and less toxic treatments for children and raise awareness for childhood cancers, cancer research, and clinical trials.

Together, we will Write a Better Story for these heroes!

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.
