How do you thank someone for saving your life? Ellen Nottingham has had two years to ponder that question.
Diagnosed in the spring of 2016 with acute myeloid leukemia at a large hospital in Seattle, Nottingham was told by a team of three doctors that she had two weeks to live. One of them remained in the room after the other two left and offered a different option, saying quietly, “You could go to Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and see if they have a clinical trial you could join.”
When Ted Ave’Lallemant was diagnosed with leukemia in 2005, his oncologist in Wisconsin suggested he seek a second opinion at Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.
More than a dozen Seattle Cancer Care Alliance (SCCA) and Fred Hutch physicians and researchers who are leaders in breast oncology will be at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium December 4-8. The symposium provides the latest information on the experimental biology, etiology, prevention, diagnosis and therapy of breast cancer and premalignant breast disease.
