In the video above, take an inside look at Seattle Children’s Hospital’s Cancer Care Unit and meet the individuals at Seattle Children’s dedicated to helping children and teens conquer childhood cancer, the second leading cause of death in children ages 5-14.
Tour the country’s first adolescent and young adult cancer unit thanks to a guide who knows the unit all too well, a former patient. See first-hand the cutting-edge research that is saving and enhancing the lives of children and adolescents – from using the body’s own immune system to fight cancer to a relatively new form of radiation therapy that offers hope to children with recurrent neuroblastoma.
Meet a brave group of women who are thriving through cancer and living their lives to the fullest, and be inspired by the generosity of the community, raising money to help fund future cures and effective treatments.
From doctors to nurses, social workers, even musicians, follow the Cancer and Blood Disorders Center Team as they grant exclusive access into the Cancer Care Unit. See all of this and more in “Conquering Childhood Cancer.”
