The creation of DayOne Matters was the culmination of several things. While in chemo treatment for breast cancer, Founder, Amy Tuten-Darrah, felt led to do something to give back.
It was the impact of the people who surrounded her at the time, and the disappearance of others, that would spark the conversation of the need for one-on-one support with Founder, and uterine cancer survivor, Brenda Walton. Together, they determined that Cincinnati area women dealing with breast or gynecological cancer, whether Fighter, Survivor or Caregiver, should be uplifted in a positive, holistic manner, and that no matter where they were in their journey, support would start now. This would be their DayOne.
DayOne Matters has created extensive lists, available on this site, to serve as a one stop shop for positive cancer related information. From service providers, products and programs to resources, these continually updated lists contain a wealth of help that saves hours of Internet searching. Additionally, DayOne Matters IMPACT Giving offers women need-based bill assistance, healthy meals and chemo/radiation bags filled with great products.
