Hearst Journalism Awards Program Multimedia Competition 1st Place Award Winner
A photo and multimedia story about Emily (Emma) Whitehead, the first child in the world to receive a CART-19 T-Cell Transplant. Update: Since this video was created, 1 million of Emma's cells were tested and doctors were not able to detect any evidence of cancer! The oncology team at CHOP feel that it is possible that Emma's bone marrow is not making cancer cells any more and they can declare her cured within two years.
