other side of the planet

We received an email last week from a dear friend of ours who works at Children’s. Here is what it said:

“Yesterday I had a nice visit with a family who had found their way here to Seattle Children’s from Tel Aviv. Of course they were here for T Cell therapy. It is just so gratifying to see all this hard work and influence moving, with unimagined speed, beyond the neighborhood and around to the other side of the planet.”

It is amazing to think that some day these children won’t have to go anywhere but their local hospital! In the meantime, I thought you might be interested to see where families have traveled from to participate in the current clinical trials out of the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research:

Canada
Germany
India
Israel
California
Iowa
Kansas
Missouri
Oregon
Tennessee
Texas
Utah
Washington
Wisconsin

Thank you for your continued generosity and support of this work. As you can clearly see it is making a difference in the lives of real families both here in our neighborhood and literally on the other side of the planet! #crazy #amazing #grateful
