Of Medicine and Miracles by Filmmaker Ross Kauffman

“Of Medicine and Miracles” from Academy Award-winning filmmaker Ross Kauffman features Emily Whitehead’s journey from childhood cancer patient to survivor. The film follows Dr. Carl June as he pioneers CAR T-cell research and – through the telling of Emily’s story – offers a beacon of hope to patients and caregivers facing their own adversity.

As a companion to the film, watch the “Curing Cancer: Katie Couric & The Ongoing Miracle” event. Join award-winning journalist Katie Couric in conversation with Emily and Tom Whitehead; Dr. Carl June, the CAR T-cell therapy pioneer, Director for the Parker Institute for Cancer Immunotherapy at the University of Pennsylvania, and winner of the 2024 Breakthrough Prize in Life Sciences; and Dr. Julian Adams, Ph.D., president and chief executive officer of Stand Up to Cancer, to talk about Emily’s journey and the promise of immunotherapy as it has evolved.
