Everything we do here at Fred Hutch starts and ends with patients. Decades ago, it was one patient — baseball great Fred Hutchinson — who inspired everything that is happening today inside our labs.
Fred Hutch photographer Robert Hood melds the present and past with images inspired by one of his favorite websites, which asks users to “take a picture of a picture from the past in the present.”
When the doors of Fred Hutch opened in 1975, we were honored to have the support of more than 1,200 benefactors — visionary donors willing to invest in a new but promising organization and a future free from cancer. In just the past year, more than 33,000 such visionaries partnered with us.
To the more than 300,000 individuals and organizations who have so generously contributed to the Hutch over the past four decades to start new cures, we extend our most heartfelt gratitude. On behalf of our scientists and staff, and especially the millions of patients and families around the world whose lives have been touched by the work you made possible,
