WHAT WE DO
Hope, Education, & Support
Northwest Sarcoma Foundation is a nonprofit organization committed to providing education and support to anyone who is 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.
Pediatric Patient Financial Assistance
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 Chris and Michele Westerholm who lost their daughter, Jenna Westerholm, to Sarcoma in 2009.
Adult Patient Financial Assistance
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.
SIG KOHL LEGACY AWARD
Making a Difference
The Sig Kohl Legacy Award is granted each year to a recipient who is dedicated to making a enduring difference in the fight against Sarcoma. Whether it be through research, patient support, or dedication to the Sarcoma community; the recipients of this award carry on the legacy of Sig Kohl and are making a true difference in the lives of people battling Sarcoma.
