nomination eligibility guidelines
To qualify for support from the Breathing Room Foundation, an individual must:
- Live within our areas of service.
- Have a cancer diagnosis and undergoing active treatment at the time of referral. Active treatment includes currently receiving chemotherapy, radiation, immunotherapy, or stem cell therapy. BRF also assists Families who have had a recent bone marrow transplant or recent cancer surgery, or who are receiving hospice care.
- Be referred by a member of their oncology team. This can be a social worker, clinician, or healthcare professional.
Be advised, this is one-time financial assistance, providing support where needed most. In addition to financial support, there are often additional areas of support, depending on the needs of each individual family. Funds are paid directly to vendors or provided in the form of a gift card, never given directly to the Family.
