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.

Save The Date!

The quest to #WriteABetterStory continues Saturday, September 17, 2022 at Valley Forge Casino Resort in King of Prussia, PA.

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.
