Survivor Stories

A diagnosis of cancer can be devastating. But it doesn't need to be debilitating. We'd like you to meet some courageous Virginia Mason patients who went from devastated to determined. Not only were they going to survive, they were going to thrive and help others after their cancer diagnosis. The patients you will meet here wanted to tell their stories in the hope that honestly sharing their experiences would help others going through similar situations. They want you to know that if you or someone you love has cancer, help is available, and hope and healing are possible. Learn more about cancer care at Virginia Mason by calling (206) 223-6193.
