Here for you, no matter what
As we look back on 2019, we’re more grateful for you than ever.
Your support put us in the best position to tackle the challenges of 2020. And while many things are uncertain, you can continue to count on us to care for you and your family.
Your generous philanthropic investment—more than $26 million in 2019—is transforming how we deliver health care to our community.
It’s been a transformative year for cancer research in particular. Thanks to support from donors like you, our patients have access to world-class research and out-of-the-box thinking right here at home.
One example is our VIBE study which tracks the side effects breast cancer survivors experience to better understand the toll chemotherapy can take on their body. The results will give future breast cancer survivors hope for better quality of life following treatment.
And our patients with glioblastoma, a lethal brain cancer, are gaining months or years of extra time thanks to a trial that’s harnessing the brain cancer-fighting properties of existing medications for other cancers.
Those are just two examples of what you’ve made possible. On the following pages you’ll meet donors just like you who are fueling innovative health care for every member of our community with their philanthropic support.
You are changing lives with your investment in Swedish. Thank you for your extraordinary caring.
