Friends and Family established the Karen Wellington Foundation for LIVING with Breast Cancer in 2007 in the memory of Karen (a young mom diagnosed with breast cancer at age 30 who passed away at age 40). Karen’s foundation has a fun-only mission (#FunNow). We send women and their families on special vacations, spa days, dinners out, concerts and other fun-only stuff. KWF puts some fun on the calendars of women LIVING with breast cancer. In 2014, we did 50 special vacations, 20 spa days and other fun-only activities for women like Karen who were not done living yet. We ask vacation home owners to donate a week a year of their vacation homes and we match them with worthy recipients and put the FUN together. In recent years we’ve also opened chapters in Dayton (2013), Atlanta (2014) and Cleveland and San Diego (are coming online in 2015).
The Karen Wellington Foundation for LIVING with Breast Cancer is a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization #26-3768567
