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.

KOMAK CARES

My story begins just 18 months ago, before which we were a typical middle-class family who always paid our bills on time and were otherwise totally oblivious to the physical, emotional and financial havoc a catastrophic illness brings.

UPCOMING EVENTS

HOW YOUR DONATION WILL HELP SOMEONE LIVING WITH CANCER

Gifts of all sizes bring immediate and interim financial solutions to working age individuals who are going through cancer treatment, who live within a 50 mile radius of Portland.

Our benefactors are working when they are diagnosed, have less than $20,000 in savings or their 401k, and have a definable timeline for a return to work (not a terminal diagnosis). Your donation will help us directly pay bills and provide grocery cards, bus tickets, etc.
