Thank you for supporting Breakfast with Friends 2020!

Thanks to contributions from more than 550 donors, Cancer Lifeline’s annual signature fundraiser, Breakfast with Friends met and exceeded its goal. Raising over $200,000 for the Patient & Family Support Fund, this year’s Breakfast was held completely online. Our thanks to Morhaf Al Achkar, MD, PhD, for our keynote address about Finding Resiliency & Meaning with Cancer, and to Susan Baumgaertel, MD, for leading this year’s extraordinary effort. With these funds, Cancer Lifeline can continue to make all our free programs accessible to all people living with cancer.

You can still make a donation. A donation in any amount helps us help people living with cancer.

In this short video, a handful of our clients, instructors, volunteers, and board members brings us a powerful message about Cancer Lifeline and how we go beyond cancer.

UW Physician, Professor and Stage 4 Lung Cancer Survivor Morhaf Al Achkar asks the hard questions that every cancer patient faces: how can I find meaning when faced with the unthinkable? What role does resilience play in my cancer journey? Cancer Lifeline invites you to spend 20 minutes with Dr Al Achkar in this year’s keynote address.

Board member, survivor and donor Bill MacDonald shares his Cancer Lifeline story in this short video.

One of Cancer Lifeline’s Gentle Yoga instructors, Kate Hildyard explains in this short video why teaching our clients is so fulfilling.

Breakfast with Friends is a huge hit every year and has become critical to Cancer Lifeline’s ability to continue offering its programs for free. The Breakfast accounts for nearly a third of our annual donation total. Help us make this year’s Breakfast with Friends Online event as successful as years past!
