Welcome Megan!

Megan and RobertNorthwest Sarcoma Foundation is very pleased to announce the addition of Megan Gundle to its staff team!

Megan joins the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation with more than 8 years of experience in healthcare. Megan has an interest in the oncology field that stems from her own personal experience when her mother was diagnosed with Lymphoma.   It was the support and encouragement her family received that instilled in her the passion to help others through her career and volunteering work.   Most recently, she worked at Seattle Children’s Hospital in the Performance Improvement Department.  Her cumulative personal and professional experience feeds her passion for her position, as the Regional Director for Oregon.  She is excited and honored to be part of the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation.

As the Oregon State Regional Director, Megan will be leading the foundation's activities in Portland, including the annual Dragonslayer Walk, and an annual Gala.  Due to the explosive growth of OHSU and the Knight Cancer Institute, the Northwest Sarcoma Foundation is planning to grow its presence in Portland significantly over the next few years in order to serve the sarcoma community within that region.

You can read Megan's heartfelt cover letter here and resume to learn more about her background.

Please join us in welcoming Megan to the team. She can be reached at (503) 887-7117 or This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
