Orlando Charities

Healthcare Connect supports numerous charities throughout the year. Local charities are chosen to be featured on our multi faceted community platform. The goal is to bring additional exposure through our website, social media, print media and events. Healthcare Connect assists these organizations in leveraging that exposure into raising awareness and money.

Through these diverse platforms the selected charities have the opportunity to promote their upcoming walks, runs, fundraisers, and provide Healthcare Connect members with additional information on how they can volunteer and contribute.

Healthcare Connect is constantly searching for new organizations to work with. If you or your organization is interested in becoming a Featured Charity please contact us.

Breathe Easy Foundation

Cystic fibrosis is a deadly genetic disease for which there is currently no cure. A decade ago, its victims seldom survived into adulthood. Through the years, advances in research, treatments, therapies, and medications have pushed the average life expectancy well into the 30's and even 40's. While this is an incredible milestone, and a tribute to the hard work and dedication of those searching for a cure, it also brings to light another unfortunate burden for the CF patient. As CF patients live longer and longer, the costs of keeping them alive continues to escalate. Increased insurance costs, hospital expenses, medications and therapies, not to mention basic living expenses, leave the CF patient and their families struggling to make ends meet. Many CF patients are forced out of work due to chronic infections, making it even more difficult to cover the costs associated with this disease. With government budget cuts and the lack of any other assistance programs available, in 2010 it became necessary to form the Kevin A Przybyl Breathe Easy Foundation, Inc. in order to help bridge the gap between what these patients CAN afford and what they MUST afford in order to survive. Our goal is to help these patients not only survive, but thrive with an improved quality of life, one they may not have been able to afford without our help.
