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.
Established in February of 1997, The Breathing Room Foundation raises money in a number of ways. The list of events have been designated as our major fundraisers, donations to this non-profit charitable organization are the life blood of our efforts.
We are a United Way Recipient, our donor # is 6506
As important as your donations are, you can also assist us by nominating someone for an award. By making us aware of a person fighting cancer, you would have our service made available to them. Our awards include things such as house cleaning, home renovation, or gifts for children.
