A Story of Inspiration and Tremendous Friendship

Karen was diagnosed with breast cancer in 1994 and Carol in 1995. From 1994 until 2015 Karen and Carol supported each other for 22 years in a beautiful and inspiring fashion. Both had a strong spirit, faith and an undying love of life. Both never complained and always wanted the focus on their families – not them.

We ask that when you feel down in life, remember “22” and the inspiration of Karen and Carol showing us how to live with class and grace!

Our Mission

The goal of the 22 Foundation Fund is to raise money to buy throw blankets for chemotherapy patients while they are receiving treatment. We want to provide a small measure of comfort, let them know we care and, most importantly, help keep them warm. We make deliveries throughout the year to UPMC Magee-Womens, Forbes Regional and Hillman Cancer Centers
