The name behind Pete Gross House

Pete GrossAs the "Voice of the Seahawks" (Seattle's football team) for 17 years, Pete Gross was a mainstay in Seattle culture. Drawn by his humorous, fair, fun, and concise announcing style, Seattleites were faithful listeners throughout Pete's career. Pete is best remembered for the love and enthusiasm he held for the Seattle Seahawks, his family, and the community at large.

Pete battled with cancer for years. During his treatment at various cancer specialty centers around the country, Pete and his family were struck by the lack of temporary, affordable housing for cancer patients who were often far away from their homes. They also dreamed of a place that provided a supportive environment of other people who were undergoing similar challenges with cancer.

Pete's family and friends joined with a wide array of local businesses, community leaders, and Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to create Pete Gross House as a lasting memorial to this special person. Thanks to the continuing efforts of Pete Gross Council; safe, clean, convenient, and affordable housing for SCCA cancer patients and their caregivers is still a reality.

Generous community support enables Pete Gross House to provide comfortable and supportive living accommodations for cancer patients and families who are not from the Seattle area. Donations also support the Family Assistance Fund, which provides aid to patients, their families or caregivers who demonstrate a need for financial assistance with daily, non-medical expenses, such as grocery money, diapers, child-care costs, bus fares or long-distance phone bills.

To make a financial contribution, please contact the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center's Annual Giving department or call (206) 667-5242.

To learn about in-kind donation needs, please contact the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance Volunteer Office at (206) 606-1071.
