The Charity

On December 3rd 2014, Seattle Children's Hospital and Research Foundation launched a $100 million, multi-year fundraising initiative to support research that scientists believe has the ability to cure some types of childhood cancer in the next 5 to 10 years.  

Strong Against Cancer is backed by Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson and will help fund patient access to clinical trials as well as research on immunotherapy, a breakthrough treatment that reprograms the body's T-cells and reintroduces them into the immune system, where they hunt down and destroy cancer cells.  

Developed at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research at Seattle Children's, immunotherapy reduces the need for chemotherapy and radiation, along with the harsh side effects that often accompany those treatments.  For more information or to make a donation, visit STRONG AGAINST CANCER.
