GRACE Partners with Patient Resource Publishing


Recently GRACE has been working with Patient Resource to provide information made available through the current issue of their patient guide, focusing on cancer survivorship. Our founder and president, Dr. Jack West offers a message of “Survivorship and Your Path Forward” found on page 2 of the guide.  

Patient Resource is the leading national consumer based publication serving cancer patients, caregivers, survivors, and the medical community supporting them. It is written by a distinguished team of medical writers and overseen by a medical board of directors, including some of the country’s most widely respected oncologists. More than one million copies are distributed free of charge at more than 7,000 medical facilities across the country each year. 
The goal of Patient Resource LLC is to empower people who are suffering with life-altering diseases by giving them the most comprehensive and up-to-date guides to treatment and facilities for their disease free of charge. The information is written for ease of understanding and is offered in printed publications and online at GRACE is pleased to have partnered with them to produce their latest patient guide. A downloadable PDF of this document is available here.

Join GRACE at the Barb’s Beer Salute to Jack West Oct. 2


Barbara Murphy with beer

Barbara Murphy was a great runner, wife, mother and friend. She passed away last December from lung cancer that was initially diagnosed in 2007.

This past July, her family launched the Barb’s Beer Foundation. Working with brewmaster Chuck Hohing and the Northsound Brewery in Mt. Vernon, Washington, they developed a recipe for Barb’s Beer and began selling it at a single restaurant in Bellingham called La Fiamma. Proceeds from every sale benefit the Global Resource for Advancing Cancer Education (GRACE).

On Thursday, October 2nd, the Foundation will present GRACE Founder and Board Chair Dr. Jack West with the first money raised since that launch. They will also announce their plans for the expansion of beer sales to other venues in the Seattle area.
