ABOUT THE OTIS FOUNDATION
The OTIS Foundation provides retreat accommodation at no cost to those dealing with the challenges of breast cancer.
We aim to provide immediate relief to people who need a short-term break away.
The hundreds of guests who take advantage of The OTIS Foundation’s retreat accommodation each year consider the organisation an amazing gift at a time when they need it the most. Prividng them an opportunity to take a break away with loved ones – an opportunity to relax, reconnection and create special memories together.
The Foundation currently has properties in Victoria, New South Wales, South Australia, Queensland, Western Australia and Northern Territory and is strongly committed to ongoing growth.
Each retreat has been donated for its location, in a beautiful environment which allows guests to draw on nature for strength and comfort.
Anyone who has faced the challenges of dealing with breast cancer is eligible to stay at an OTIS retreat, along with their partner, family or friends.
“It is not just the woman experiencing breast cancer that benefits. While breast cancer is clearly regarded as a disease mostly affecting women, it is also the support we are able to provide to the whole family that really makes a difference. Often it’s the partners and children who get the most out of staying at an OTIS property and taking some time away from the highly emotional challenges of dealing with breast cancer.” – Lisa Farrar, CEO, The OTIS Foundation
