Thank You Pink Ribbon Army for raising $35,000 for Northwest Hope and Healing at your inaugural event!

The newly formed Pink Ribbon Army raised an unbelievable $35K for NWHH at their inaugural golf tournament and 5K at Chambers Bay Golf Course in Tacoma.

This event sent a powerful message to local breast and gynecologic cancer patients that a new community has arrived to offer support. Pink Ribbon Army is an incredible organization dedicated to raising funds and awareness to help breast cancer patients.

Thank You Darrin & Michelle Maddux For Supporting Us With Your “Go The Extra Mile-Athon”!

Darrin and Michelle Maddux are big supporters of NWHH. They learned about the organization last year and raised $15,000 in their first Mile-athon. Now, after participating as models in our Life in Color Fashion Show, they are poised to give another $15K to NWHH with this highly successful event.

Thank you to everyone who donated in support of this campaign and a special thank you to Edrington for providing a double matching donation!

Thank You Hotel Lotte For Raising Funds & Awareness For NWHH With Your Pink Menu!

Seattle’s newest luxury hotel – Lotte Hotel – supported Northwest Hope and Healing in October with a signature Pink Menu of delicious sweet treats and cocktails. Not only did this project help spread the word about NWHH to potential supporters, but also, Lotte generously donated 50% of the proceeds, ultimately raising over $1,500 for NWHH.

Thank You To Brighton Collectibles Alderwood Mall For Supporting Us With Your Power of Pink Campaign!

Brighton Collectibles at the Alderwood Mall supported us once again with their amazing Power of Pink Campaign. This initiative involved selling pink ribbon charm bracelets and donating the proceeds.

Support NWHH for Giving Tuesday

Northwest Hope and Healing’s virtual gala on Saturday November 21 has been extended to include Giving Tuesday.

Our recent gala commemorating 20 years of resilience as a community raised over $200,000 for local women who are struggling to pay for everyday basics while receiving cancer treatment. But the need is greater than ever right now.

The economic impact of the pandemic has been particularly difficult for individuals and families already struggling to pay for basic necessities while undergoing cancer treatment.

In order to help us provide the necessary assistance to our community, please consider making a donation to NWHH for Giving Tuesday. Your donation will help us continue providing immediate financial assistance to local women undergoing cancer treatment to help them cover the costs of rent, groceries, transportation, and more.

If you were unable to join us for the live-streamed event, you can watch the full recording here—featuring testimonials from physicians, as well as past and current cancer patients—to see first-hand the difference that your dollars make for a local woman in need!
