Katterhagen Cancer Resource Center

Information to Make Educated and Informed Decisions


Gale and Anne Katterhagen understood the needs of cancer patients in a way few could. They were immersed in it professionally. And experienced it personally. As a physician, Gale dedicated his life’s work to the disease that would ultimately take his life. Anne, too, has made a profound difference in the lives of cancer patients by founding Hospice of Tacoma. It was only natural that the Katterhagen Cancer Resource Center was established in their honor.
