When you’re fighting to survive, you shouldn’t have to struggle to eat.
Northwest Hope & Healing provides immediate financial assistance to local women undergoing breast or gynecologic cancer treatment at Swedish Cancer Institute who are struggling to meet their basic needs.
Studies show that cancer can be financially devastating to women and their families. Our financial grants pay for necessities such as food, utilities, and childcare so that women in our community can focus on healing.
Northwest Hope and Healing is a 509(a)(3) Supporting Organization of Swedish Cancer Institute; our EIN number is 20-0799737. All donations are fully tax-deductible.
