"The Karen Wellington Foundation for LIVING with Breast Cancer"
Hi everyone! It’s all about #FunNow! Dan is well trained and ready to compete in the Ironman World Championships in Kona this Saturday, October 12th, and I’m celebrating 4 years breast cancer free!!!! We call that LIVING! We are also all about GIVING!
Once again, we are raising money through his race for the Karen Wellington Foundation (KWF) for LIVING with Breast Cancer. KWF puts #FunNowon the calendars of women and families LIVING with breast cancer - people with calendars filled with doctors’ appointments, tests, chemo and radiation treatments, surgeries, and worries. We send them on memorable vacations and provide relaxing spa days, dinners out, concerts, and other FUN-ONLYactivities. I was gifted a family trip when I was going through my breast cancer, and this foundation has now become part of our family! I came back from our KWF vacation wanting to pay it forward and now I volunteer my time for them. I am a co-chair of the Recipient Ambassador Board, and also now sit on the Board of Directors.
Since 2007, KWF has provided 500 vacations and counting, 300+ spa days and counting, and countless other gifts of FUN! We realize the need for a cure, but we are not waiting for one. Sadly, these vacations are last vacations for approximately 30% of our recipients.
We hope you will consider helping other families struggling with breast cancer to continue LIVING life to the fullest by making a donation to KWF right here, right now! For more information on the foundation and how you can nominate someone or volunteer, please visit our website at karenwellingtonfoundation.org
Thank you for helping others have #FunNow! and keep LIVING!
