Forward 4 Tobi Foundation is an Illinois non-for-profit charitable organization.
We established the Forward4Tobi Foundation in memory of Tobi Klonecki, a special wife, mother and friend who lost her life to breast cancer. Even during the worst days of this disease, Tobi thought of herself as 'lucky’ , for she had the family, friends, and financial means to deal with the daily struggles of breast cancer. Tobi would have wanted her legacy to be about helping those who didn’t have the means she had - to help bring out the normal in abnormal. She would have been first in line to pay it forward.
The Forward4Tobi Foundation aims to improve the lives of patients suffering from breast cancer by providing financial assistance for medical expenses, childcare, and other daily unmet needs so they may focus on fighting this insidious disease.
Cancer is hard enough. Our vision is to help make the lives of patients and their families a little bit easier, taking away some of the financial burden so they can focus all of their energy on fighting this disease and living life. To bring out the normal in abnormal.
