The Breathing Room Foundation supports family's needs while in active treatment for a cancer diagnosis. The support given includes; a small financial award that can be used to pay a bill or a gift card for gas, groceries or other necessities and we also offer support for children's programs if there are children under the age of 18 in the home. A nomination needs to be completed by the patient's oncology social worker or a healthcare professional involved with their cancer care.
