In this episode we're delighted to be interviewing Emily Whitehead, cancer survivor and ambassador for CAR-T therapy. At only six-years-old, Emily Whitehead was facing a life-threatening recurrence of acute lymphoblastic leukemia, the most common childhood cancer.

 

Emily's cancer resisted over 16 months of chemotherapy treatments when her parents were told that her cancer had relapsed and that she would not survive. Jana Stoudemire exclusively interviews Emily alongside her father Tom.
