Every person’s actions, even small ones, can make a big difference.
There are countless ways we can all get involved to activate the cure for childhood cancer. Here are a few ways each one of us can help!
Individual or Group Fundraising
Let everyone know that this year you will be collecting monetary donations for EWF in lieu of gifts for weddings, birthdays, anniversaries, family reunions, etc. Register your special occasion page to direct your gift-givers to one, easy donation spot!
Hold your own event to raise awareness and funds for the Emily Whitehead Foundation. Register your event page for one simple spot to collect, accept, and submit donations.
Don’t have a specific event or occasion but still have a heart to help activate the cure? No Problem! Register your personal page to help increase awareness and raise funds for the Emily Whitehead Foundation.

Pediatric Cancer Patient or Family Member
Share Your Story
As partners in our common mission to raise awareness, fund research for less toxic treatments, and find a cure, we would love to spotlight your or your child’s story! Our aim is to increase awareness about all types of pediatric cancer and/or immunotherapy including
- Pediatric cancer families who would like to share their story in honor or memory of their child
- Pediatric cancer families or patients who have received T-cell therapy or another type of immunotherapy
- Pediatric cancer survivors (especially teens!)
One of our favorite ways to make silent auction events unique is to include artwork created by our heroes – childhood cancer patients and survivors.
We host auctions at several events and conferences throughout the year, often attended by researchers and doctors. As you can imagine, many of these champions in the fight do not get to interact with patients, so the winning bidder of these pieces often hang the artwork in their offices and labs as inspiration.

Dedicating my runs and my time to EWF makes everything I do seem a little bit bigger, a little more meaningful. I will always be an “Embassador". Next to being an aunt, it’s the greatest title I’ll ever hold.
