NW OUTREACH MINISTRIES
October 9, 2013

The NW Outreach board and volunteers serve God by serving people! NW Outreach's mission is to share hope with fragile families and individuals. Just a couple of examples of sharing hope events are serving coffee at the SeaTac Rest Area with donations given to food banks, hosting a refueling station to bike riders for fund raising for cancer research with Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center, and other events.

MESOTHELIOMA APPLIED RESEARCH FOUNDATION INC
October 9, 2013

My husband, John, was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma a year ago. We frantically searched for help, but it seemed there was no place to find information or support for this rare type of cancer. So when we found MARF online it was God-sent! Mary was so encouraging! She was kind with a wealth of knowledge. She added us to a survivors and caregivers support group - an ongoing blessing! We were moved from fear to hope as knowledge gained from MARF's research helped us navigate to the best possible treatment options. John had a 14 hr. surgery with the only dr. in our area having the expertise to perform it. Today John is doing very well! Only those that have walked this road know what is needed for survival. We are grateful to the MARF staff for all they do to fight this terrible disease and their mission to find a cure for mesothelioma, including grants for clinical trials.
