To raise $1 for every person who was diagnosed with breast cancer every year. That's $1 for every One.
Where Will the Money Go?
To support our mission to extend financial assistance to families who are burdened with the staggering costs of breast cancer treatment.
Since our inception in 2003, we have awarded more than $550,000 in grants to over 400 breast cancer patients in Northeast Ohio. But the need far exceeds our current ability to help.
The largest uncovered cost of breast cancer treatment is the loss of an income to a family. Think about it! While a mom is sick, one half of the family income vanishes. While a single mom is going through chemo, she can’t go to work. Who pays the mortgage, the heating bill, the groceries? The assistance we provide gets them through and helps them to get back on their feet. The mere diagnosis of breast cancer brings with it enough heartache and trouble without having to worry about losing your home or having your heat turned off. That’s where the Karen P. Nakon Breast Cancer Foundation comes in.
