Our Founders

The People of the Puyallup Tribe

A Long Tradition of Giving Generously.

We continue that tradition by offering a place of healing at the Salish Cancer Center. Our center is in Fife, Washington, where the spirit of healing continues to live through the land and natural environment. By coupling our Native beliefs and practices with evidence-based cancer care, naturopathic oncology, and Chinese medicine, enhanced healing can be achieved.

Salish Cancer Center is the culmination of a vision by the Puyallup Tribe of Indians and a values-oriented clinical team to offer health and hope to all individuals who have cancer. The creation of this world-class cancer center serves as a successful example of the future of oncological care.
