Bonnie Porter

You make stories like Bonnie’s possible

“I never realized I could be a victim of cancer,” says Bonnie. I didn’t realize I would be one of the statistics.”

Going through treatment for her breast cancer was one of the toughest things Bonnie Porter has ever done – and one of the toughest things her family has ever gone through.

“It’s really hard to watch someone that is always so strong … to be so instantaneously debilitated,” says Talia Porter of watching her mom endure seven surgeries and chemotherapy to treat her breast cancer.

But today, Bonnie is in remission because the care she needed was available at Swedish – care that’s only possible thanks to the generous philanthropic support of our community.
