Breathing Room

Our mission is to provide care and support to local families affected by cancer. We recognize that a cancer diagnosis affects every aspect of a family’s life; emotional, physical, spiritual and financial. We strive to provide a family with whatever it is that will allow them a bit of “breathing room” from their daily struggle against cancer. It is our hope that this will allow them to concentrate all of their efforts towards regaining their physical health. A person in need of support must be nominated by a member of their oncology healthcare team and must live within our service area.

Daene Longenecker

As a licensed marriage and family therapist, I support families as they face the unique challenges they encounter when a loved one is struggling with a life-threatening illness. I work with individuals, couples and families to provide support and help them attain a measure of peace during this tumultuous time. In addition, not working with insurance companies, allows me to keep my fee low, $70 a session, and affords me to opportunity, when appropriate, to offer a reduced rate to families facing financial constraints. I also accept health savings plans cards and can provide receipts for insurance companies when necessary.
