How the Sale of MainVue's Charity Home Will Help Seattle Children's

How the Sale of MainVue's Charity Home Will Help Seattle Children's

In the spring of 2015, Emmy Cole was taken to Seattle Children's for what her family thought was an infection. But the diagnosis was much worse. Emmy underwent an aggressive 18-month treatment course for neuroblastoma. Two years later, Emmy's prognoses looks good. Dr. Navin Pinto, a Seattle Children’s physician who cared for Emmy, credits the hospital's commitment to research as one of the reasons for their patients' great care. "Seattle Children's dedication to research has been amazing. Through research, we've been able to fund these clinical trials that have made these improvements in care." That research is largely funded by generous donors. The money raised by the sale of the MainVue Charity Home at Tehaleh will go to support Seattle Children's Strong Against Cancer initiative and Research Discovery Fund.
