This isn’t about beating the odds. This is about changing them.

We fight relentlessly to make sure there’s no such thing as “out of options” and to make sure kids who “didn't have a chance” can have the childhoods they deserve. At Seattle Children’s, we’re united by a compelling mission: We provide hope, care and cures to help every child live the healthiest and most fulfilling life possible.

Together, we deliver superior patient care, advance new discoveries and treatments through pediatric research and serve as the pediatric and adolescent academic medical center for Washington, Alaska, Montana and Idaho – the largest region of any children’s hospital in the country.


Aisley Races to a Bright Future

In 2020, Cari and John had taken their 3-year-old daughter, Aisley, to her pediatrician because she was having frequent headaches and vomiting. She seemed especially tired and was eating less than usual. 

Aisley’s pediatrician referred her to Seattle Children’s, where an MRI revealed a life-threatening tumor that was pushing her brain to one side. She needed to go to the intensive care unit immediately, then undergo emergency brain surgery. 

Cari and John put their trust in Seattle Children’s Brain Tumor Program – one of the largest and most comprehensive pediatric programs in the world, with specialists who cover every aspect of care.

Aisley’s treatment included six months of chemotherapy, then six weeks of radiation to get rid of any remaining cancer cells. Her radiation oncology team significantly reduced the risk of damage to Aisley’s brain by using proton therapy to protect areas critical for language, memory and learning. 

Aisley completed her treatment in April 2021 and continues to have MRI scans every six months. She remains cancer free today. Thanks to generous donors to the Uncompensated Care Fund, the ongoing cost of the hearing aids Aisley needs is covered.
