  2. Thank you for sharing your story, it is a wonderful success. Emily, I have to say you are quite a remarkable and lucky girl. I hope you do go to college someday and do something great too. To your parents, I can only imagine your gratitude for those Doctors in your time of need. May God bless you all and keep you safe in the future. Keep us updated !!!

  3. Hello,
    My name is Michael Wylie and I have followed your story for several years now after stumbling upon the short video made by GE, highlighting the engineered virus immunotherapy performed under the doctors at the Penn University. I just wanted to say that your story has not only inspired me, but continues to push me in the medical field while I prepare myself with advanced degrees in medicine in hopes that someday I can be a part of the team who renders the term “cancer” a term only used in past tense.

    Thank you so much for continuing to share your story,

    Michael Wylie
