Living with cancer is a very challenging time not only for the patient but for his or her loving family. That's where the "Breathing Room Foundation (BRF) " can step in to help.  BRF was spotlighted by the Huntingdon Valley-Churchville Rotary speaker series on March 14.
Jacob was diagnosed with cancer at 9 months. He is cancer free for 2 years, but needs intensive followup. The ordeal caused tremendous stress for  parents Mark and Stephanie Burstein, who also have a six year old son "Sammy'" . The Bursteins were referred to BRF in 2015. The largely volunteer -driven program provided a wealth of help including school supplies, holiday meals, summer fun activities and an intense yard cleanup. Mark and Stephanie spoke glowingly about how BRF dramatically improved the Burstein's quality of life.
Super scholar and soccer star Ericka Behr received Huntingdon Valley-Churchville's student of the month award for March 2018. Erika hopes to go to St. Joseph's University to study biology. She is pictured with her mother Melissa and  student of month committee chair Richard Kozub, Sr.

The Huntingdon Valley- Churchville Rotary is partnering with the Cowhey Family Warminster ShopRite to help fund our club's charitable projects through the "Save- A- Tape" Program. Simply label your  register tape with the club's name and drop it  in the collection box in front of the store. A percentage of sales will be donated to the club.
