SCCA clinical trial offers a follicular lymphoma patient the opportunity to treat his cancer while traveling the world
Bob Ekblad had been running and working out, feeling strong and purposeful as a religious scholar who travels the world advocating for the vulnerable, when he came face to face with his own vulnerability.
In the summer of 2018, he noticed a large, hard lump in his abdomen. A biopsy led to a diagnosis of follicular lymphoma. Ekblad, who lives in Mt. Vernon, Wash., was referred to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, which combines the expertise of top cancer researchers with cutting-edge clinical care.

Any woman who has had a mammogram this year may have noticed that her results report looks a little different from previous years. Since Jan. 1, 2019, facilities such as Seattle Cancer Care Alliance that perform mammograms are required to inform women if they have dense breast tissue.
Metta Barden received her annual mammogram screening earlier this month at the SCCA Mammogram Van.
It’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month, which is an opportunity to remind women who find it challenging to schedule their annual mammogram that there are multiple ways to access mammography at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA). Make an appointment at the main clinic in South Lake Union or take advantage of the convenience of SCCA’s Mammogram Van, which travels around King County and offers the same quality of care as the clinic.
