You. Us. Better together.
SCCA patient and provider stories — in their own words.
But when I met my care team at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, I felt — for the first time — a sense of calm come over me. I knew this was the place to be, and every experience I had proved that to be true.
They are not only the very best cancer center in our region, they are some of the most amazing people I have ever met. Even today, twelve years later, I consider my doctors and nurses to be family.
After they found the tumor in my lung, I was on an emotional roller coaster. Then I met with my SCCA pulmonologist, Dr. David Madtes. He helped me understand exactly what I was dealing with, and within just a few minutes, I knew that I was in the best possible hands.
I am alive today because of two things. First, I had the sense to get screened for lung cancer. Second, the amazing providers at SCCA and UW Medicine.
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance is one of the most important cancer centers in the world. My colleagues are incredible. Each uniquely capable. Each a pioneer in cancer care. Each and every one of us here for one reason: You.
Together we offer our patients a level of care that is truly rare. The most advanced treatments. The most personal therapies. The greatest possibility of success.
I came here because I have devoted my career and my life to cancer, and SCCA gives me the chance to do my very best work — for you.”
I worked even harder to become a nurse at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance. Because SCCA understands how vitally important a deep relationship with a nurse can be to patients and their loved ones. Here, I’m not just a nurse, I’m your nurse.
At SCCA I get to work with a team of incredible people. Compassionate, talented, beautiful people who have the power to do what is right for you. Here, you have the best chance of success in your care, so that we have the longest relationship possible.
