1 for Everyone

Our Goal

  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.

How Can You Help?

  1. Give what you can and get everyone in your family, your workplace, and your church … any organization you belong to…to give. 

  2. Invite us in to any group to which you belong so that we can introduce them to The Foundation, let them know how they can become involved and make sure they know how to apply for assistance, if necessary.

  3. Help us to spread this message one person at a time and between Mother’s Day and Thanksgiving each year.  Let us know what you are doing so we can post it on our website to give others ideas about how they can help.
