Fighting cancer is tough enough. Paying for every day essentials shouldn’t be!

At Northwest Hope & Healing our goal is to help as many local breast and gynecological cancer patients as possible. We want mothers to be able to feed their children while they seek treatment. We want to ensure reliable transportation to daily radiation treatments. A majority of our funds go into the Northwest Hope & Healing Patient Assistance Fund at Swedish Medical Center to provide local assistance for everyday living expenses such as child care, groceries, reliable transportation, and emergency rent.


Any dollar amount helps!
