"I always tell other kids who are still fighting in the hospital to always keep believing in yourself, never give up, and smile every day."
My name is Emily Whitehead and I'm 13 years old. In 2010 I was diagnosed with Leukemia at the age of 5. I was rushed to the Hershey Medical Center In Hershey PA to receive chemotherapy. Unfortunately, they ran out of options for me so, I had to go down to the Children's Hospital of Philidelphia. There, I was entered in a clinical trial that saved my life. I became the first child in the world with my immune system trained to beat cancer. As of now, I am 6 years cancer free.
