Our Impact

Where The Money Goes

The money that is raised by the Emily Whitehead Foundation goes where our donors expect it to — to help support the development of cancer treatments that are less toxic and have less long-term, negative side effects for children. Our goal is to raise funds to support further research and help make it possible for kids all over the world to have access to life-saving immunotherapy treatments.
