Pays bills for people affected by cancer.
Our services go directly to cancer patients, survivors, and caregivers so they can thrive through their journey of survivorship.
how difficult a cancer diagnosis is. Our founder, Dorothy Paredes, is a 3x Cancer Survivor. When she was diagnosed with Breast Cancer at 26, she experienced first-hand the financial hardships of cancer. With mounting out of pocket expenses, even though she had full insurance coverage, she had to terminate the lease on her favorite apartment, sell her car, and move back home with her parents.
This change in her independence caused depression, stress, and anxiety, which was the last thing anyone needs while going through treatment.
Thankfully, Dorothy had family who helped her with finances and to get back on her feet after cancer. This experience was the catalyst for her to help others so they wouldn't have to suffer the hardships she did.
The Atrium Foundation will provide hope and renewal for those affected by cancer; we will be a hand that supports the journey of cancer survivorship.
