At nine-years old, pigtailed Emily Whitehead is doing exactly what you're supposed to do on a boiling summer day: eating ice cream with sprinkles. What seems like the most ordinary of childhood past times, some would call a miracle. Only 2 years ago, Emily was dying quickly from leukemia and was days away from missing a lifetime of swimming holes, town parades and laughing with girlfriends. But now she gets to experience all of it.

As the first pediatric patient to receive a T-cell infusion, Emily is the face of cell therapy. She and her parents Tom and Kari live in the small tight-knit community of Philipsburg, PA, and she reminds everyone she meets that life and childhood is precious.
