Our Story

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 activities. KWF puts some fun on the calendars of women LIVING with breast cancer.  Since 2007, we have sent more than 250 families on vacations, while others enjoyed spa days and special days out for women like Karen, who were not done living yet.

NOMINATE A Woman LIVING with Breast Cancer

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.
