Seattle University's Dance Marathon is a student-led organization that will host the largest dance marathon on the West Coast on February 16th in Seattle to raise money for Strong Against Cancer and Seattle Children's. Join the students on the dance floor or make a pledge to help in the fight to end childhood cancer.

Immunotherapy

Immunotherapy is the next great advancement in cancer treatment. Through cellular engineering, we enable the body’s own immune system to heal itself—without the harsh and often lifelong side effects of chemotherapy and radiation.

How Immunotherapy Works

93%

of patients achieved complete remission in the clinical trial using genetically reprogrammed T cells to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia (ALL)

The Results

Most patients see success within weeks.

Not only do most immunotherapy patients see their cancer quickly go into remission, the side effects of the treatment are less harmful than aggressive chemo or radiation. Finally, a more effective and gentle treatment for childhood cancer is within our reach. And we’re already seeing results: a recent Seattle Children’s pediatric leukemia clinical trial resulted in a 93% complete remission rate in children with relapsed leukemia.
