Seattle Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center takes an incredibly innovative approach to the treatment of cancer. Most importantly, they never give up on a patient. If you have received a grim diagnosis, get a second opinion from the professionals at Seattle Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center. I was told twelve years ago that I had less than a 4% chance to live more than two years. Today, I am both alive and living with gratitude for each day. That is my story. Each of us has a different story, but it is important to listen to as many voices as possible when you receive an unfavorable diagnosis. The integrative approach of Seattle Cancer Treatment and Wellness Center and the unique metronomic chemotherapy approach they use is showing incredibly promising results.

It is such a great resource providing both a rich experience and an important educational component. When you visit, plan to spend enough time. There is much to learn and enjoy!

Our family first visited Volunteer Park and the Conservatory on Eritrean Independence Day, 2014. It was a rich event enhanced by the beautiful setting of the park. The Conservatory and the park is a treasure for the City of Seattle. Open gathering places of this nature are part of what make Seattle a great city.
