For The Breathing Room, a recipient is one who receives services from the Foundation. This person has been nominated to the Breathing Room by a healthcare professional because they have a diagnosis of cancer and could benefit from our support and services.

Established in February of 1997, The Breathing Room Foundation was founded to provide care and support to local families affected by cancer and allow them a bit of “breathing room” from their daily struggle against cancer.

It is only through the work of kind, compassionate volunteers that the Breathing Room Foundation is able to assist and impact so many families battling cancer. To help us reach more families, we are always in need of more volunteers.


Help Build Our Foundation

The Breathing Room’s mission is to provide care and support to 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.
