Thanks so much to Eric Eye and the amazing artists at Dark Age Tattoo for supporting Northwest Hope and Healing!
On Saturday October 6th, Dark Age Tattoo in the Capitol Hill neighborhood hosted a tattoo fundraiser in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness month, with 100% of the proceeds benefitting Northwest Hope and Healing.
Check out the King5 coverage and video here!
If you missed out on the event this year, don’t worry, you can join in on the fun next year. We’ll keep you posted on the 2019 October date.
This event was 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.

A hearty THANK YOU to everyone who participated in Northwest Hope & Healing’s annual summer fundraiser!
Because of you, we are able to continue providing immediate financial assistance to local women who are undergoing treatment for breast or gynecologic cancer at Swedish Cancer Institute.
Style ’18 raised a whopping $310,000—thanks to YOU!
As Northwest Hope & Healing’s biggest event of the year, this high-energy evening was a whirlwind of celebration and support for women who are undergoing treatment for breast and gynecologic cancer in the Seattle area. Just take a look:
Held at the newly opened The Sanctuary, highlights of our 2018 event included heart-warming presentations from former recipients of NWHH assistance including Shelly Hughes, and Evelyn, Chris, and Emma Daniels, a guest appearance by the inimitable Thierry Rautureau of Loulay and Luc restaurants, a beautiful musical performance by Rebecca Friedman, live music by DJ Phase, and entertainer and EMCEE extraordinaire, Ian Lindsay.

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.
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 April 20, 2016, Northwest Hope and Healing’s Executive Director Kristina Dahl made an appearance on KING5’s New Day Northwest.
Kristina Dahl and NW Hope & Healing grant recipient Tracey Hilton made an appearance on New Day Northwest to talk about how NW Hope & Healing helps cancer patients, and the growing need for assistance within our community.
