We’re not your ordinary cancer foundation. Nope. Not at all. Our focus is on FUN. Fun NOW, to be specific. We put FUN on the calendars of women and families LIVING with breast cancer – women with calendars full of chemo and radiation treatments, doctors’ appointments, tests, and more tests. Not-fun-stuff. Our Recipients are special ladies and families who are not done LIVING yet. We send them on family vacations, relaxing spa days with sisters, dinners out with best friends, concerts, road trips and other FUN-ONLY activities .
We’re a diverse, inclusive, and growing group of friends in ten chapters throughout the U.S.. Friends who know how to have fun and, more importantly, get excited about giving FUN to others.
What started as Karen's dream to send one family each year on a special vacation once she beat cancer has blossomed! Over the past ten years we have sent more than 250 special ladies on important vacations, provided more than 150 spa days and other crazy gifts of FUN. In 2016 alone, we sent 70 families on vacation! We hope to do even more in 2017.
We rely on the generosity of people to donate a week a year of their vacation homes or timeshares, airline miles or cash. Our Giving Committee leverages this generosity, connects the dots, and makes some magic happen. Before it’s too late. #FunNow!
Somehow just saying "thank you" doesn't seem like enough. But I hope you know how much your kindness has meant to us. With the medical bills pouring in, we knew there was no chance of taking a vacation this year. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for the perfect getaway KWF planned for my husband and me. I loved my morning walks on the beach ... This past year has been nothing short of horrifying ... KWF put FUN back into our lives which had been gone." - Michelle
