  • Innovative New Cancer Trials

    The Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research has launched promising new trials that seek to harness the power of the immune system to effectively combat certain cancers with far less severe side effects – potentially reducing or eliminating the need for chemotherapy and radiation as we know it today.

  • Bone Marrow Transplant

    Seattle Children’s offers hematopoietic cell transplant (bone marrow transplant) to young patients through our partnership with the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. Each year, we perform transplants for approximately 50 children and teens.
