Fred Hutch has two Long-Term Follow-Up (LTFU) programs focused on patients who have undergone a bone-marrow or stem-cell transplant and immunotherapy. Services for both programs are provided through the Fred Hutch clinic.
We understand that our BMT survivors may feel anxious about COVID-19. We are taking measures to make our clinic visits safe through additional screening and COVID-19 testing. We are following all guidance about personal protective equipment and additional cleaning and are confident that our actions are making a visit to the clinic safe for patients and staff. There are new practices in place that you will be asked to follow if you have an appointment.
If you have questions regarding how the current COVID-19 risk level impacts your LTFU upcoming or later appointment, call our LTFU Department (206) 667-4415 to discuss them with your care team.
Join our BMT LTFU Obliteride team this summer! 100% of participant-raised dollars go to work at Fred Hutch, advancing cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and cures. This year you can designate your fundraising to the area of work most meaningful to you (hint, hint – LTFU!).
On Saturday, August 12th we’ll walk/run for 3 miles from UW to Gas Works or cycle various routes. Or, join us by riding/walking/running from where ever you are if you can’t join us in Seattle.
Registration and fundraising varies by the activity you chose to participate in. Discounted registration and fundraising commitments available for youth/young adult participants and people who have or have had cancer.
Friends and family are welcome to join the team, too! To participate in the 25-, 50-, and 100-mile rides, you must be 18 or older. All ages are encouraged to participate in the 5K, but minors must be accompanied by a parent or legal guardian.

We welcomed more than 300 guests to share, learn and celebrate BMT survivors. We also honored Dr. Mary Flowers for her more than 30 years as director of the Long-Term Follow-Up clinical program.
As you have experienced, patients come to Fred Hutch seeking hope and we are committed to delivering personalized care with warmth and compassion in a world-class institution. Our work never stops, and that’s why we rely on generous support from our community. Please consider making a gift with someone in your circle who is passionate about ending cancer.
Workshops from the reunion event are available to view online.
