What We Do


Hannah Woertink, BSW, RBSW

Komak is instrumental to the success of many of our cancer patient's treatment here in the Portland metro/Vancouver area.   The assistance they provide allows patients to focus on healing instead of worrying about how they will stay housed or how they will keep the lights and heat on during treatments. Many hardworking patients are ineligible for government assistance and other forms of financial assistance but are left unable to pay their bills due to the effects of their cancer diagnosis and treatment.  Komak fills in the gaps between societal safety nets that many of our patients find themselves falling through.  Komak is an organization with heart.  They truly care about the patients they serve while being conscientious about how they distribute funds.  I am so grateful for all Komak does for the local cancer community, and I hope this organization continues to expand!
