Cures are within reach. Today, curing cancer is as much a resource challenge as a scientific challenge. That’s where you come in. Your Obliteride dollars support research that overcomes obstacles and brings powerful treatments to more patients, more quickly.
We all want to live in a world where there’s a cure for every cancer and every patient. Together, we’re fueling the science that will make it happen. Thanks to our generous sponsors, every participant-raised dollar supports Fred Hutch researchers advancing better prevention, treatments, and cures for cancer and other diseases. Watch Hutch scientists share their work.
Dr. Filippo Milano’s lab uses umbilical cord blood — collected with the mother’s permission after the baby is born — to create potentially lifesaving stem cell treatments. The approach is especially important for patients who might not otherwise find a matching donor.
How might lifestyle and genetic factors affect a woman’s risk for breast and ovarian cancer? Dr. Holly Harris is learning more. By focusing on these factors, her work is giving women new information for decisions about risk, prevention, and screening.
Thanks to you, we’re heading toward a world where we can not only treat cancer, but we can prevent it before it starts.
Obesity and cancer are linked — but losing weight can be difficult. Dr. Akhila Rajan is investigating how the misregulation of a hormone called leptin may contribute to obesity. Her insights could unlock new ways to help people fight obesity and, by extension, lower their cancer risk.
Patients need answers now — so why work alone? Dr. Eric Holland helps align scientists from Fred Hutch, the University of Washington, and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance to save lives. Through the Seattle Translational Tumor Research group, they’re pooling information on treatments, research, and data to do more for patients.
