Oak Harbor, Wash.

Friday, May 30 to Saturday, May 31

Nearly everyone knows someone who has had cancer. On May 30, honor cancer survivors and remember those who have been lost by joining fellow Whidbey Islanders in Oak Harbor at the 2014 Relay for Life, a fundraiser for the American Cancer Society.

UPDATE: Whidbey General staff and supporters raised more than $5,200 at the 2014 Relay for Life.

Whidbey General is honored to care for island residents coping with cancer. For more than 20 years we have sent a team to the event where, in addition to fundraising, we host an information booth where you can learn about early detection and prevention of common cancers.

Relay for Life graphicHospital staff and supporters will join other Relay teams and take turns walking or running around the track at North Whidbey Middle School. The Relay is an overnight event, with many participants camping on location.

The opening ceremony takes place at 6 p.m. on Friday, May 30 and the Relay concludes at 1:30 p.m. the following day.

You’re invited to join or financially support the Whidbey General team in the fight against cancer. Every dollar raised moves us closer to the American Cancer Society vision of a world with less cancer and more birthdays.

To sign up or donate, visit Relay for Life Whidbey Island. View Top Teams to join or support an existing team in our community. You can even start a new team.

Regardless of the role you choose, we look forward to seeing you at the Whidbey Island Relay for Life on May 30!

Outstanding Quality

Dr. John Hoyt, Dr. Amy Picco (seated) and Renee Yanke, ARNP, serve on the Whidbey General Cancer Committee. The Commission on Cancer reaccredited our cancer care program in 2012 with the maximum eight commendations. Very few hospitals achieve this distinction. We also received the commission's annual Outstanding Achievement Award, an honor shared in 2012 by only 79 hospitals in the country and one other hospital in Washington. Read more about this prestigious award.


"All of you shine with love and caring!— the doctors, nurses, clerical staff and others we’ve encountered and are blessed to have met. Why we’re here is not our choice, but we couldn’t think of a better place to go through this journey. We are so grateful." Read more comments about our Cancer Program.
