Breathing Room Foundation accepts nominations from social workers and other healthcare professionals. The individual nominated becomes a recipient of the services and programs offered by the foundation as long as they are in active treatment for a cancer diagnosis and they live within our service area.

Established in February of 1997, the Breathing Room Foundation was founded to provide care and support to local families affected by cancer, allowing 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.
