Dark Age Tattoo Fundraiser for Northwest Hope and Healing

Always thought about getting a tattoo? Thinking about another? Now’s your chance to have a tattoo done by the amazing artists at Dark Age Tattoo—while supporting Northwest Hope and Healing!

On Saturday October 6th, Dark Age Tattoo in the Capitol Hill neighborhood will be hosting a tattoo fundraiser in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Northwest Hope and Healing.

Each tattoo artist will create design sheets (called “flash sheets”) for the event, depicting a range of different tattoo designs for you to choose from, each one priced at just $50.00.

On the morning of October 6, line up outside the shop in advance, so you can get your name onto their sign up sheet as soon as the door opens at noon. When your number comes up, the tattoo artist will call you.

With Sincere Thanks to Eric Eye

This event is being coordinated by Eric Eye, who has been a professional tattoo artist since 1990, specializing in detailed realism and portraiture. When his significant other went through a double prophylactic mastectomy with reconstruction, and he saw firsthand what a huge difference restorative cosmetic tattoos made for her, and began to focus on nipple and areola reproduction tattoos for breast cancer survivors.

His goal? To help breast cancer survivors feel whole again through the healing power of ink.

Cork Fork Support Wine Tasting Fundraiser on November 16, 2017

Thank you to all who joined us at this event!

With your help, we raised over $35,000 to support Northwest Hope & Healing

 

Cork, Fork, & Support was a grand success—where an awesome gathering of friends, colleagues and neighbors gathered at the historic Melrose Market Studios for a fun night of tasting local wines, cider and spirits and delectable hors d’oeuvres.

Guests bid on awesome auction packages, bought raffle tickets, and raised their paddle—all in support of local women who are undergoing treatment at the Swedish Cancer Institute for breast or gynecologic cancer. 

Thank You to Our Sponsors

Thank you again to Health Perspectives Group, Lake Partners Strategy Consultants, and Swedish Cancer Institute for your premier sponsorship of the event—almost 100% funded by your sponsorships. Thank you Wells Fargo for your volunteers, and to all of our other donors, sponsors, and volunteers.

As one of Northwest Hope and Healing’s three major annual fundraisers, this event enables us to provide these women with immediate financial assistance—funds that can be applied towards everyday living expenses such as childcare or groceries, reliable transportation and/or emergency rent. Some of these women would be unable to make an electric bill payment or even put food on the table for their children, were it not for our support.

Cosmo 7k (formerly the Alki Beach 5k) Fundraiser a Success!

Cosmo 7k and 5k (formerly Alki Beach 5k) A Success

Thank you to the 1,100+ people who supported Northwest Hope & Healing!

On Sunday August 27, more than 1100 women, men, and children ran a great route, along a gorgeous waterfront, for a genuinely good cause: raising money to provide immediate financial assistance to local women who are undergoing treatment for breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute.

This year, the Board of Northwest Hope & Healing decided to transfer ownership of the Alki Beach 5k to a local events organization called Fizz Events.  Not only did this relieve us of the (high) cost of producing the event, it enabled 100% of your donations to go directly to NWHH to support women in cancer treatment – a huge win!

This Year’s Run Included:

  • Both 5k and 7k options
  • Kids Race with Special Kids’ Superhero Cape
  • Women’s Long Sleeve Tech Top for all 7K & 5K participants
  • Logo-ed Cosmo Martini Glass and 2 cosmos at the finish line
  • Finisher Medal
  • Personalized Participant Bib
  • Chip Timers
  • Live music and fun at the finish line

Fizz Events Proceed Distribution:

  • $2 from every registration went to NWHH
  • All proceeds from tribute patches went to NWHH
  • 100% of your donations went to NWHH
  • A portion of all sponsorship dollars went to NWHH

 

New Interim Executive Director Karyn Blasi Hellar

We are excited to announce the selection of Karyn Blasi Hellar as our new interim Executive Director, and invite you to join us in thanking Kristina Dahl for serving in this role for nearly two years.

We are grateful to Kristina for helping Northwest Hope and Healing grow—through more awareness, more donations, and best of all, more women receiving help through our grants and healing baskets. We are sad to see her leave, but wish her all the best in her new endeavor as a high school English teacher.

Karyn (pictured at right) is prepared to lead NWHH with enthusiasm, knowledge of the organization, a first-hand understanding of our patients’ needs, and a commitment to our cause.

She also brings a wealth of experience to her new role: while managing breast imaging for Swedish Hospital, First Hill, she was asked to join NWHH Board, where she filled roles on the executive team as Board Chair and Vice Chair. Prior to her tenure at Swedish, she worked for a decade at both Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and Seattle Cancer Care Alliance, where she more recently managed the breast cancer program.

“I look forward to continuing to serve and partner with Seattle’s dynamic community in this new capacity,” remarks Karyn. “I am dedicated to supporting and developing NWHH because it provides vital resources to those in need, contributing to this region’s quality of life.”

Please join us in wishing Kristina well in her new endeavors, and also in welcoming Karyn to her new role.

On September 15th, Northwest Hope & Healing was recognized in an awards ceremony at the Swedish Donor Recognition Event held at the Seattle Tennis Club. Northwest Hope & Healing was presented with the 2011 Swedish Community Impact Award which recognizes a corporation or foundation whose ongoing support of Swedish Medical Center has made an important impact on the health of the people and community they serve.

“This award is the result of the generosity of our donors and supporters. The Community Impact Award is an honor to receive and we look forward to continue to assist women who are battling cancer.” says Executive Director, Shari Sewell.

Since 2000, Northwest Hope & Healing (NWHH) has partnered with Swedish Medical Center to offer support to women who are battling breast cancer in the Puget Sound area. Through their Healing Programs, which include the Patient Assistance Fund and the Healing Basket Program, NWHH has sent a message of love, life, and hope to more than 6,800 women who are fighting breast cancer. After paying for medical care, deductibles, co-pays and prescriptions, many patients face a shortfall for basic needs like food and rent. The NWHH Patient Assistance Fund helps ensure that women don’t have to skip treatment to have food on the table, childcare during treatments, transportation to appointments, or a roof over their heads.

In addition, signature Healing Baskets are filled with items such as a teddy bear, soothing hand lotion and herbal tea. Healing Baskets are given free of charge to newly diagnosed breast cancer patients at all Swedish Campuses which include First Hill, Cherry Hill, Edmonds, and Issaquah, as well as the Swedish Cancer Institute affiliate at Highline Hospital in Burien.

Other awards were presented by Swedish to John L. Petersen M.D. and Saul Rivkin M.D., Martin S. Siegel M.D., Anne and Wayne Gittinger.
