How Far We’ve Come: Emily’s Journey
Many of you are familiar with Emily Whitehead, a THON child, who recently was the first child to receive a CART-19 T-Cell transplant. Since the procedure, Emily has significantly recovered. In her mother’s words, “she’s back to normal for her, which means before she was even sick.”
Savannah Smith, a communications student here at Penn State, recently put together a multimedia video focusing on Emily’s miraculous turnaround. Emily’s parents discuss their fears of pursuing the treatment and where things go next, all while pictures from the transplant process and Emily’s daily interactions stream through.
A delightful video of an inspiring tale of hope for a cure for all children, check out Smith’s video below. 15 days ’til we dance!
