It started as

…an idea conceived by a two-time survivor of leukemia who was intent on raising money for a local organization that saves the lives of children with leukemia.  It began in 2018 as Climb for a Cure, and raised more than $100,000 for the cause, attracting a community of generous donors and sponsors.  Soon joined by friends, including others touched by the scourge of this tragic disease, it became Swing for a Cure 2021, a local golf tournament that raised still more.  Thanks to sponsors, donors, and participants, it was a tremendous success.

For A Cure NW is a non-profit charitable corporation focusing on supporting research for the treatment of children as well as supporting their families as their children undergo treatment in the High-Risk Leukemia Program at Seattle Children’s Hospital.

“A unique aspect of the leukemia team at Seattle Children’s is that they’re both willing to be aggressive and go above and beyond to give a child a chance at living and being cured, and they’re also really respectful of what is best for the child and what the family thinks is best for the child, which for us, was focused on Henry’s quality of life.”
