We help local women
with cancer
pay for everyday basics

Northwest Hope & Healing is the only organization in Seattle that provides immediate financial assistance exclusively to breast and gynecologic cancer patients.

What We Do


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.

Our signature Healing Boxes are distributed to newly diagnosed women to show them that they are not alone. They are filled with items designed to offer comfort and hope during chemotherapy and radiation.

Our Survivor Advisory Committee is committed to expanding the inclusion of survivors in NWHH events and communications. If you are interested in joining, please contact jen@nwhopeandhealing.org

“Thank you is not enough. From the bottom of my heart, you guys are my angels. I highly and deeply appreciate this help.”

The state of Washington has the highest rate of breast cancer in the country. 4,000 of our sisters, daughters, mothers, wives and grandmothers are diagnosed each year in this state.
