At work on my medical oncology unit, I have seen first-hand how devastating and horrific cancer is. I witness the fights of so many amazing individuals and their families as they battle this horrible disease. It breaks my heart to see the emotional and physical pain they endure. I have also seen how patients undergoing new, groundbreaking therapies can be given new hope and new chance of life. Through the UW nursing program I have also had the opportunity to participate in research, and to see how evidence-based discoveries can reinvent healthcare. I believe that research will be the key to curing cancer, and that Fred Hutch, along with a strong network of many other organizations and hospitals in the Seattle area, are the key to get us there.
Half of all men and one third of all women in the U.S. will get cancer in their lifetime.
Cancer is the second leading cause of death in the U.S.
