WHAT WE DO
Hope, Education, & Support
Northwest Sarcoma Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to providing education and support to patients and families who are living with this specific form of cancer. We strive to provide timely and accurate information regarding research and treatment options, and offer overall support by creating local networks throughout Washington, Oregon, Montana, Alaska and Idaho.
The Jenna Westerholm Pediatric Help$ Program is available to Sarcoma patients under the age of 22 and currently undergoing treatment in a pediatric medical hospital in Alaska, Idaho, Oregon, Montana, and Washington.
This program was established by Chis and Michele Westerholm who lost their daughter, Jenna Westerholm, to Sarcoma in 2009.
Through the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation financial assistance programs we are able to ease the financial strain placed on patients throughout the treatment process. Patients utilize the grant to assist with medical expenses, transportation costs to treatment, and everyday living expenses.
Our current research strategy is direct funding to our most promising Sarcoma-focused researchers. Since 2011, we have been able to invest over $300,000 to support these great researchers. We are grateful for the generosity of supporters like yourself.
