KOMAK is an all-volunteer Portland-area 501(c)3 charity providing financial assistance to
cancer patients who are unable to work during their treatment.

We help with the bills of daily life so that patients can stay in their home, eat well, and pay
their utilities while they focus on getting better and returning to work.

When bad things happen, how do we act individually, and how can we come together as a society? How can we be kind in times of darkness?

Whether it’s a few hours or a long commitment, volunteering not only supports those around you but positively influences you as well.

Living a full and altruistic life is about more than just doing your best. It’s about sharing your best with others around you and connecting with them through our inherent need to tell stories.
