What we aim to solve

Our mission at The DONNA Foundation (TDF) is to provide financial assistance and support for individuals living with breast cancer and fund ground breaking breast cancer research. Through her own experience surviving breast cancer three times, our Founder Donna Deegan has cast a vision to transform the experience for those living with breast cancer to one of love and support over fear and confusion. We deliver this vision through our DONNA CareLine, serving patients’ financial critical needs, through ground breaking breast cancer research funding at the Mayo Clinic so there is a hope for the future, and for the thousands of athletes who join us each year to celebrate survivorship and lift one another across the finish line of DONNA signature events including The National Marathon to Finish Breast Cancer.
