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.

In 2020, you might be wondering if being happy is something you could admit to—but even during challenging times, there are ways to boost your mood and try to celebrate the good things in life.

When it comes to living an altruistic life that can help make a difference for others, one of the most valuable things you can give your community is the gift of volunteering.

On average, a new habit takes approximately 30 days to develop, so don’t get discouraged if you struggle at first. Remain positive and focused on the goal.
