Fred Hutch is a leader in pioneering scientific research to find a cure for cancer, but a big key to discovering these breakthroughs is due to the support they get from private funding. Joining us today was James and Sherry Raisbeck who donated $1.5 million to establish an endowed chair at Fred Hutch dedicated to finding a cure for lymphoma. Also, Dr. Ollie Press, who holds that chair and has since pioneered several treatments that have significantly improved cure rates for patients with blood cancers.
