Support social work services and Swedish Cancer Institute in Issaquah

September 17, 2014 Kylie Davidson, MPH CHES

Come and join us for a handbag auction that supports social work services at Swedish Issaquah and bid on new or gently used designer handbags, sunglasses, and jewelry. The auction will take place on Saturday, October 11, 2014 from 11:30 a.m. - 3:00 p.m., at the Newcastle Country Club in Bellevue.
Every dollar raised will go towards funding the Cancer Social Work Services program at Swedish Issaquah. Social workers play a critical role in supporting cancer patients by providing a safe place for patients to talk about their emotions. In addition to supporting patients emotional needs social workers also answer patient questions and assist patients with accessing vital resources, including the philanthropy-supported Swedish Cancer Patient Assistance fund. This fund helps to relieve financial and other stressors.
