Our mission is to provide care and support to local families affected by cancer. We recognize that a cancer diagnosis affects every aspect of a family’s life; emotional, physical, spiritual and financial. We strive to provide a family with whatever it is that will allow them a bit of “breathing room” from their daily struggle against cancer. It is our hope that this will allow them to concentrate all of their efforts towards regaining their physical health.

It is rare to find someone among us who is not aware of a person surviving with cancer. It is as rare to find someone among us who has not been inspired by the courage and perseverance the survivor has shown in the face of disease. These survivors should be awarded for their efforts.

Chalkboard Nomination


A nomination is the process of letting the Breathing Room Foundation know about an individual that you may feel is deserving of an award, someone that has inspired you as they work through their own battle with cancer.

Chalkboard Award


Support provided by the Breathing Room Foundation is referred to as an award. It is not charity and it is not assistance, it is an award to recognize an individual for their heroic effort in the face of disease. We are inspired everyday by the heroic efforts of so many individuals as they fight the most difficult battle and it is our privilege to recognize them by showing our support in the form of an award.
