We're one of the top children’s hospitals and pediatric research institutes in the United States.
It’s time to celebrate – today is cancer warrior princess Jane’s last chemo! ・・・
Today, we celebrate #StrongAgainstCancer VIP and cancer warrior princess Jane's LAST chemotherapy infusion at @seattlechildrens! Jane is famous for her signature onesie pajamas, and she loves "working out" with "Coach" Linda (her favorite person in the whole hospital) in the PT clinic. Her mom tells us, "Jane is brave and fierce and one of the sweetest souls we've ever known." 💪💗
Autumn says, "It's time to shred some cheese!" Don't mind if we do. Let's hear it for the @Seahawks! #GoHawks #SEAvsGB

Last summer, Liesel was diagnosed with a brain tumor and had two brain surgeries. This fall she’s headed to @Harvard. “As I look back on my journey, I realize I have learned a lot and it has made me a more empathetic person. I’ve always been confident in my abilities, but this experience provided an unexpected test.
I have been deeply humbled and have become more grateful. I rejoice that I am alive and still able to work toward achieving my dreams. I am so excited to be starting college and I hope to major in biomedical engineering; I am ready for my new future.” – Liesel
We're so grateful for Callie, this week's @StrongAgainstCancer VIP! She's fueling groundbreaking pediatric cancer research at the Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research through @calliescoffee. ☕️ #kidshelpingkids
This week's #StrongAgainstCancer VIP is the one and only @calliescoffee! Callie's Coffee was started by 7-year-old Callie Lentz after the death of her friend Ben to childhood cancer. Ten percent of every purchase supports @seattlechildrens Ben Towne Center for Childhood Cancer Research, named after Callie's friend. Last week Callie presented us with a check for $5,000 from her coffee sales, and we are so grateful! To get your own Callie's coffee, visit choosecallies.com.
@drjeffceo climbed 13 stories to the top of the Building Cure tower crane to survey construction progress. “It was great to see the Building Cure site from the bottom to the top,” he says. “I’m so excited for the cures on the way.” Opening in downtown Seattle in 2019, #BuildingCure will expand the Seattle Children’s Research Institute campus to help us accomplish more life-changing research that transforms the lives of children and their families.

We're feeling strong and inspired after yesterday's @StrongAganistCancer flag raising on top of the #SpaceNeedle.
Kicking off Childhood Cancer Awareness Month, @dangerusswilson, cancer survivor Zachary, T Cell #immunotherapy patient Ian, @seattlechildrens CEO Dr. Jeff Sperring and rockstar researcher Dr. Mike Jensen raised the #StrongAgainstCancer flag on top of Seattle's iconic @spaceneedle today!
The time has come for Seattle Children’s longest-working therapy dog to bid furwell for retirement. If Abe had the ability to talk, he would likely tell stories about the thousands of brave, resilent kids he’s met throughout his 11-year career as a registered therapy dog. In honor of National Dog Day, we recognize this special four-legged volunteer.
Join us in sending a million and a half plus thank yous to @DangeRussWilson, @whynotyoufdn, and @safeway @albertsons customers for giving generously to our @StrongAgainstCancer initiative. With your support, cancer doesn’t stand a chance!

Tomorrow is Cohen’s 10th birthday! We seriously can’t wait to see all the incredible things the future holds for this #cancerwarrior. Let’s shower him with birthday wishes!
Tomorrow is #StrongAgainstCancer VIP Cohen's 10th Birthday and 1st "New Birthday" after receiving a bone marrow transplant one year ago! His mom tells us that Cohen fought cancer for half of his life, undergoing multiple rounds of #chemotherapy, #radiation, transfusions and more to get to where he is today. In a month, he'll be able to stop medication and hopefully get the incredible news that he is cancer free. Join us in wishing Cohen the best birthday ever! 💪🎉#seattlechildrenshospital #childhoodcancer #beatcancer
Ryker is a 6-year-old philanthropist who you’d never guess just underwent his 14th procedure for the lymphatic anomalies in his tongue and neck. “Our team is inspired by and thankful for generous patients like Ryker who help us continue our mission to help children with vascular anomalies. He is a true hero.” – Dr. Markus Boos
Though this Captain-America-loving kiddo’s medical journey continues, one can only expect more great things from Ryker.
Wow! Congratulations and thank you to Friends of Costco Guild for raising $8.87 million for uncompensated care at Seattle Children's! This annual event continues to be the single largest fundraising event in the country and we are so proud and honored to partner with this amazing group. A huge thanks to tonight's entertainment, @LukeBryan! - @SCGuilds
As one of our residents, Dr. Alex Kula brings a unique perspective to patient care: his own history as a youth with a serious illness. From a living liver transplant by his uncle to a practicing pediatrician, Dr. Kula’s journey reminds us why we’re all here. “It is so important that we remind ourselves, our patients and their families of ambitions beyond the hospital doors — noting that a child’s time in the hospital is a sidebar to the greater story of their life.”
Born a micro preemie, Grayson missed more than 100 days of growth critical to strengthening his heart, lungs, brain, digestive tract and skin. His chances of survival were at 5 to 10%. "We lived off of hope for months. We just hoped. Hour-by-hour. Day-by-day. We lived in the moment.” – Leslie, Grayson's mom
Born three months early and weighing just two over pounds, Brennan was diagnosed with necrotizing enterocolitis, a condition in which the intestines become inflamed and infected, causing chronic vomiting and loose stools. Whether it was attending a family gathering or simply dropping by the grocery store, there was always a looming concern around when Brennan may have his next vomiting or bowel incontinence episode. “He wasn’t putting on any weight, yet his stomach looked huge and swollen,” said Brennan’s mom, Gloria.
