Stories: Gregory

Gregory  Ley

"It worked. You can read my writing."

For nearly 20 years, Gregory suffered from essential tremor. His hands shook uncontrollably, making every day things like writing a check impossible because you couldn’t read his writing.

But today, that’s all changed for Gregory. Last fall he turned to Swedish to treat his rhythmic shaking using focused ultrasound for essential tremor. And thanks to the philanthropic support of our community, we’re the first in the Northwest to offer this breakthrough technology.

Donors like you make innovative care at Swedish – and stories like Gregory’s – possible. Thank you.
