Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) is proud to be ranked in the top five in the U.S. and No. 1 in Washington State for Adult Cancer Care by U.S. News & World Report’s 2017-2018 “Best Hospitals” survey.
Nicole Carter has always been a fighter. She enjoys role-playing games where she slays dragons. She’s been known to be stubborn. But, on top of all that, the 26-year-old is in her second battle with chordoma, a rare type of bone cancer.
At the age of 20, Nicole was first diagnosed with sacral-based chordoma at SCCA. At the time, proton therapy was unavailable in Seattle so she traveled 3,000 miles away from home to receive proton therapy treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital.
Debbie Berg, an IT Project Manager, had been working at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance for just four months when her world was turned upside-down with a diagnosis of multiple myeloma. Debbie started at SCCA as a contractor in April of 2010 and decided to go in for a routine physical in July after being officially hired as a full-time employee.
Seattle Cancer Care Alliance/University of Washington Medical Center ranked among best in the United States for adult cancer treatment, according to U.S. News & World Report’s 2016-2017 listing.
