Ben Doherty is a powerful advocate for the benefits of coordinated care. As a loving husband and father of three children, Ben was diagnosed with Osteogenic Sarcoma. Living in a rural community, Ben had to travel far for treatment and was initially separated from his family. Working closely with his doctors at the Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center and Columbia Basin Hematology Oncology, Ben attended the birth of his baby daughter, was reunited with family and can now receive ongoing care closer to home. He is committed to encouraging other patients to seek this coordinated care experience.
