Stories: Kami


“Thank you for helping survivors like me.”

After months of dizzy spells, Kami Combes collapsed into a seizure. Her physician referred her to Swedish where she learned that she had a brain tumor and it was cancerous. That was eight years ago.

Today, Kami lives a full life with her husband and their two children. And, she’s found a way to give back to Swedish to help other patients who may be facing a similar diagnosis. Each year since her diagnosis, Kami has captained the Titanium Makes You Stronger team at the annual Seattle Brain Cancer Walk to benefit The Ben & Catherine Ivy Center for Advanced Brain Tumor Treatment at Swedish Neuroscience Institute. To date, Kami’s team has raised more than $40,000 for our brain cancer research and patient care.
