“Don was a hero. He was, by far, the most influential person
in my career, and I know that many others would say the same

At Fred Hutch, where he was a mentor and inspiration to
so many, Thomas was a larger than life figure who was also
counted by many as a dear friend.
“To the world, Don Thomas will forever be known as the
father of bone marrow transplantation, but to his colleagues
at Fred Hutch he will be remembered as a friend, colleague,
mentor and pioneer,” said Dr. Larry Corey, president and
director of Fred Hutch, shortly after Thomas’ death. “The work

by destroying a patient’s diseased bone marrow with nearlethal doses of radiation and chemotherapy, and then rescuing
the patient by transplanting healthy marrow. The goal was to
establish a fully functioning and cancer-free blood and immune
system.
Alongside his research partner and wife, Dottie – a
trained medical technologist – Thomas stubbornly pursued
transplantation throughout the 1960s and 1970s. At the time,
hematologists and oncologists preferred to treat patients
with drugs, and prevailing thought was that the transplant
procedure was so radical and dangerous it was unethical to
administer to patients.
But years of research advances by Thomas and his
colleagues steadily improved bone marrow transplantation

accept. He had a community that needed him, a daughter
entering college in the fall and his wife of 40 years whom he
planned to be with for many more years to come.
“I was determined to fight,” Charlie said.
So Charlie assembled a team of advisers that included
doctors and a social worker with 30 years of experience
supporting cancer patients. Charlie’s team supported his
decision to enter a radical clinical trial being led by
Dr. Hans-Peter Kiem at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center in Seattle. Kiem’s approach was completely new. It
called for protecting healthy cells with a gene therapy while
attacking cancer cells with a powerful type of chemotherapy.
It was a long shot, but it was the best one Charlie had.

with more force than ever before.
Four years later, Charlie is cancer free. Six other patients
who have received Kiem’s treatment have not shared Charlie’s
miracle, but their lives were extended well beyond other
glioblastoma patients.
It’s been a long road for Charlie and his wife Elaine, but

Last year, Gottschling and Dr. Adam Hughes published

technology developed by Gottschling to determine that when
acidity levels dropped in cell components known as vacuoles,
another vital component of cells called mitochondria – the
source of energy within cells – began to deteriorate. These
were essentially the first dominos to fall in the process of
aging, a phenomenon Gottschling is studying to unearth the
mechanisms underlying age-related diseases such as cancer
and some degenerative conditions.
It was a significant finding for Gottschling and for Hughes,
who was attracted to Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research
Center four years ago specifically to work with Gottschling.
Like so many discoveries in basic sciences, the findings
required years of research. But one key event that made it all
possible was the scientists’ decision to cast aside a long-held
assumption in aging research: that mitochondria deteriorate
over time due to their chemical reaction with molecules
containing oxygen.

“We eschewed this idea

Taking their discovery a step further, the two scientists
were able to extend the life of yeast cells and maintain
ideal acidity levels within vacuoles by reducing their
nutrient intake. This observation may help explain why
some species, including mammals, live longer when
calorie levels are restricted.
The discovery’s clinical potential lies within monitoring
the process on a grander scale, which could help
scientists gauge where patients are in the aging process,
meant doing experiments in an unbiased manner. This is what
led us to the discovery of the role of the vacuole in causing
the mitochondrial defect with age in yeast.” This approach,
and how diseases like dementia and cancer develop.
“There is still plenty of room for more discovery,”
Gottschling said. n
and developing new technology to measure changes in the
cell, allowed the two scientists to make their discovery.
Gottschling believes basic sciences research, which yields
many insights for treatment advances, can thrive only in an
environment like Fred Hutch, where its value is understood
and supporters invest in it over the long-term. But the

“Sounds like something we should
do at the Hutch,” Gary told Bonnie.
“It could be a new vehicle for funding
“There’s a symbiotic relationship between the scientists and the
donors. We’ve connected with a number of scientists and are
following their stories and successes. That, for me, has forged a
lifelong relationship with the Hutch.” – Catherine Bylund

mechanism that enables networks of
one day be survivable with the help
of Mark’s approach, Gary knows well
the potential impact of the work. “It
will be one of those game-changing
discoveries,” he said.
More recently, Gary met another
visionary researcher, and what began
as an impromptu discussion sparked a
whole new experiment: Fred Hutch’s
first crowdfunding campaign. When
Gary first talked with Dr. Bonnie
McGregor, he was immediately struck
by her passion for her latest project,
developing and testing a web-based
program to support ovarian cancer
survivors. But he also recognized
Bonnie’s apprehension about obtaining
funding for work that was too novel
F R E D H U TC H I N S O N C A N C E R R E S E A R C H C E N T E R | 2 0 1 3 A N N UA L R E P O R T
start-up thoughts and projects.”
So, with Gary’s encouragement and
a generous pledge to help catalyze
the effort, they set out to test the idea.
Bonnie launched her campaign on
Indiegogo.com in May 2013, and in 40
days her crowd, including the Bylunds,
raised more than $12,000, surpassing
her original goal of $10,000.
Creating opportunities for more
people to connect with Fred Hutch —
whether through holiday celebrations
with family and friends or the power
of online networks — seems to be a
natural byproduct of the thrill Gary and
Catherine get from being so closely
intertwined with the research.
“We’re in this fight together,” Catherine said. “I really like that. I can wrap my
arms around it and get behind it.” n

Cancer is a problem we must overcome together. That’s why
Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center has built a collaborative
research environment that enables our scientists to pursue innovative
approaches in medical research. This approach has attracted some of
the world’s brightest minds to Fred Hutch. These brilliant minds have
made huge advances in preventing, detecting and treating cancer and
other diseases.
We need people like you who share our extraordinary vision of
eliminating cancer and other life-threatening diseases. Medical research
can only go so far without clinical trial participants, volunteers and
benefactors whose contributions empower our scientists to push the
boundaries of research and save more lives.
Without your support, there would be no lifesaving advances. Fred
Hutch is poised to make great advances in research fields such as
immunotherapy, HIV, muscular dystrophy and several kinds of cancers.
Your support not only allows us to conduct entrepreneurial science
that no health agency or drug company would fund, but also helps our
discoveries realize their lifesaving potential. This is our fight to win.
With your help, we can end cancer together.
