Graduations

GraduationWe understand that fighting cancer is an uphill battle, and while the team here at Rainier Cancer Center is committed to stand by you every step of the way, we recognize how cancer changes the lives of our patients and that this can be difficult. This is why, at the end of your treatment, we want to celebrate your victory with you! Upon the completion of your last radiation therapy session, we will hold a graduation ceremony for you, your family, friends, and caretakers to attend. This ceremony marks the end of a long fought battle, and the beginning of a healthy life ahead!
