Cancer Care in the South Sound

Today IĀ heard anĀ interesting presentations from an organization making a real difference in our community. When it comes to cancer care, locals immediately think of Seattle to get the best and cutting edge treatment. Our region is blessed with fantastic research facilities like Fred Hutchinson, but for those of who live an hour+ away the commute can add to the stress of an already dire situation.

Fortunately, there are great doctors and facilities here in the South Sound region. Dr. Frank Senecal told us about the South Sound CARE Foundation.

The purpose of the foundation is to advance the standard of care through access of clinical trials. Their initiative is to expand and maximize the patient access to clinical trials.

Great news for those of us who know that being “at home” is part of the overall plan to beating this terrible disease. For more information, check out www.SouthSoundCAREFoundation.org.
