On May 6-7, Tom traveled to Long Beach, CA to share our story and participate in a discussion at 2019 PDA Cell & Gene Therapy Conference.
For the fourth consecutive year, Team EWF participated as an official charity partner to the Pittsburgh Marathon. Our team of 25 runners raised over $16,000 – and were joined for the first time by Emily, who ran her very first 5k!
Emily Whitehead Foundation Co-Funds Innovative Research in Collaboration with 2019 Stand Up To Cancer Sharp Awards
The Emily Whitehead Foundation has co-funded a grant in collaboration with Stand Up to Cancer and the 2019 Innovation In Collaboration Philip A. Sharp Awards to support the advanced pediatric CAR-T cell therapy research of Dr. Sarah Tasian (CHOP) and Dr. Kimberly Stegmaier (Dana-Farber Institute).
On the 7-year anniversary of Emily's first CAR-T infusion, we had the great honor to join Steven Spielberg and Comcast CEO Brian Roberts to unveil "The Universal Sphere" at Comcast Technology Center – a public theater experience that plays a short film featuring Emily and Dr. Carl June.
