I am very proud that we are celebrating our 30th Anniversary. I know however, there is still a great need to continue our strong partnership with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to eradicate cancer so our quest continues.
Seattle’s Fred Hutch is an independent, nonprofit research institution dedicated to making revolutionary discoveries, developing better treatments, and fostering healthier lives. The Hutch is home to three Nobel laureates, and it is where bone marrow transplantation was pioneered as a cure for blood cancers. Each year, they must secure private contributions to enable scientists to explore bold ideas that lead to breakthroughs for patients and their families. We will continue to support the Hutch in memory of my father, Jacob Carl Green, Pete Gross and our many friends who have been touched by this terrible disease.
Your generosity will continue to fund three critical areas of need: groundbreaking research pioneering new ways to prevent, detect and treat cancer; the Pete Gross House, which provides an affordable place for patients and families to stay during treatment; and The Family Assistance Fund, which offers families help with non-medical expenses such as grocery money and transportation. Ultimately the money we raise will benefit patients worldwide.
With sincerest thanks,
