Northwest Hope and Healing’s signature “Healing Gift Boxes” are delivered, at no charge, to women who are newly diagnosed with breast or gynecologic cancer at all Swedish Cancer Institute campuses.

Our Gift Boxes are designed to offer a warm gesture of comfort and support to local women undergoing cancer treatment.  They send a message: you are not alone, your community cares—all while offering practical, beautiful items that can be used during treatment. Each Gift Box contains a selection of the following items:*

  • A pashmina style scarf to use as a warm wrap, head covering, or scarf
  • Soft, fuzzy slipper socks
  • Paraben free, unscented hand lotion
  • Paraben free, unscented lip balm
  • A beautiful journal
  • Herbal or green tea
  • Hand made note cards

*On average, each Gift Box contains five of these items.

Seatbelt covers may also be available to protect the surgery area, a chemotherapy port, or radiation site.

Organize a Healing Gift Box Drive

If you would like to organize a Gift Box drive to collect items, please contact and we’ll get you set up!  Consider hosting a company “Gift Box Drive” as a workplace volunteer event: we can support you in engaging employees in collecting gift box items, and we will come to you with packaging and other supplies to hold a Gift Box assembly party at your office. Thank you to recent Gift Box efforts by Expedia and DocuSign!

Corporate sponsors are also welcome to join our Healing Gift Box program.  If your organization would like to donate an item in bulk for our Gift Boxes, please contact us at for more information.
