Patient Support

Children with cancer and other serious illnesses can face many challenges along the way. Understanding the disease, tests and treatments—which can seem very technical sometimes—presents one type of challenge. The disruption to normal routines and family life can be a big adjustment. The support services at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and at Seattle Children’s, an SCCA parent organization, are here to help you.
