About Us

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 & Healing was founded by Christine Smith in 2000, roughly 2 months after she was diagnosed with breast cancer. The mission she envisioned from the beginning is the same today: to provide financial assistance to local women in need who are battling breast and gynecological cancer at the Swedish Cancer Institute.

Our Patient Assistance Fund provides assistance for everyday living expenses such as child care, groceries, reliable transportation, and emergency rent. Our signature “Healing Boxes” are assembled and delivered, at no charge, to local women who are newly diagnosed with breast cancer at all Swedish Cancer Institute Campuses.

Northwest Hope & Healing is a 501(c)(3) non-profit, EIN #20-0799737.
