Having cancer is hard enough. Paying for everyday basics shouldn’t be.
 

Conditioning & Camaraderie in the New Year

Across the greater Seattle area, local businesses led by passionate people have astounded us with the thoughtful and generous ways they have supported our mission and those served through our grant making and healing box programs. This month, Accelerate Fitness helped us kick off 2020 right!

We’re thrilled at the incredible success of our inaugural gym partnership! Accelerate Fitness helped us raise over $1,500 with two *early* morning fitness classes in support of NWHH. NWHH Executive Director and board members joined in on the fun (and can’t wait to go back for more!) for a morning of conditioning and community with other fabulous athletes!

Thank you to this month's Small Business Supporter - Accelerate Fitness!
Meet Volunteer, Tanya Casey


Is there something you're most proud of in your volunteerism with NWHH? 

I am honored to participate. We rise when we left one another and Northwest Hope and Healing certainly anchors it self in this motto. It was a very exciting moment to see Northwest Hope and Healing participate at my work, Docusign, as well as my gym, Accelerate Fitness, and really see people support one another hands-on. 

Tanya has been a volunteer for an incredibly rewarding year, and looks forward to continuing to contribute in the years to come!

What keeps you involved with us? 
Northwest Hope and Healing provides more than just monetary benefit to those in need. It provides a sense of hope and gives a level of determination to people who are experiencing pain. My family has a history of breast cancer and I am very aware that not everyone is as lucky to have a support system like they may have. No one can know what to expect when going through treatment - whether it’s the system, challenges your body throws at you or response fo treatment and recovery. It’s comforting to know that this organization is prepared to help people, no matter the scenario, with many phases in this journey. 

What are you most excited about for the future of NWHH? 
I would say I am most excited about having Northwest Hope and Healing continue to engage and create within the community. Whether it be through the network of all of the fantastic board members or volunteers and friends throughout the area, I think northwest hope and healing has penetrated the hearts of many and will be involved with many local locations that want to participate in supporting the cause. 

What would you tell someone about getting involved in volunteering with us? 
What I tell people about getting involved with Northwest Hope and Healing is that they have the ability to have immediate impact on those suffering with breast and cervical cancer. That they can learn about what’s beneficial to people in recovery beyond some of the go to items we send for care. A lot of times people feel helpless to those in this scenario and Northwest Hope and Healing gives a direct connection to people who need it most. I’ll also tell them to get involved with the annual auctions and get direct testimonials from survivors! It’s so powerful. 

Anything else you would like to share?
I am a Seattle native, proudly from a family of Lebanese immigrants. Firmly invested in my career, my family, my circle of chosen family and little French fur baby. I met Karyn from NWHH through practicing yoga with a community of women committed to fitness- we center our friendship on movement and gratitude. 

Cheers to an Incredible 2019! 🥂


As we head into 2020, we’re thrilled to report that, thanks to the incredible support of our community, more lives were changed through NWHH than ever before!

Your generosity turned into over $168,000 in grants and healing boxes for women and men facing financial insecurity due to breast and gynecological cancers. Thank you for helping to change the lives of almost 400 members of our community


This year we gave out larger grants than ever before, doing more to lift patients out of financial instability during their fight with cancer. We're honored to be part of the healing journey for so many and look forward to helping even more patients in the New Year.
