Patient Resources

The University of Washington Medical Center, in cooperation with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and the Children's Hospital and Regional Medical Center have created the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance.

The SCCA is able to utilize the tools of all three of these world-class facilities in concert to help patients and their families navigate the complicated world of cancer. One of the facilities the SCCA operates is a Resource Center for patients and their families with complimentary literature and a lending library of clinical and emotional support books. The SCCA also operates several support group meetings each week for persons in all facets of cancer care including patients, primary caregivers, and family members.

The ultimate goal of the alliance is to give patients, caregivers, and families the courage and support in their battle with cancer. The supportive volunteers and staff make your visit to the Medical Center as easy and seamless as possible. One patient or family member at a time they are empowering people against cancer.
