The Gift of Hope & Healing
Fighting cancer is tough enough.
Paying for every day essentials shouldn't be.
Your gift will change the life of a woman facing cancer.
After paying for medical care, deductibles, co-pays and prescriptions, many patients face a shortfall each month for basic needs like food, rent and childcare.
The NW Hope & Healing Patient Assistance Fund at Swedish helps ensure that women don’t have to skip treatment to have food on the table, pays for childcare during treatments, provides reliable transportation to appointments, or prevents and eviction by keeping a roof over their head.
At current donation levels, Swedish estimates only 25% of the women who qualify for financial assistance actually receive it. With your donation, that percentage can increase. Since inception in 2000, the Foundation has assisted more than 2,600 women financially, and delivered more than 7,300 Healing Baskets, baskets which carry a message of love, life and hope.
Here's an example of how your contribution could help:
- $10 will buy lip balm for the Healing Baskets
- $25 will fund a Healing Basket
- $50 will buy a gas card or groceries
- $100 will provide after school child care
- $250 will keep the lights on and the phone connected
- $500 will prevent an eviction
- Any dollar amount helps!
What may seem small to many of us is an incredible gift to those in need.
Thank you for your support.
