The Tyanna Foundation honors a mother’s life, love, and living legacy. Tyanna Barre O’Brien lost her battle with breast cancer in 1990 at the tender age of 48. Her legacy continues today through the work of her daughters Anne, Bridget, Megan, Sara & Kate O’Brien, the founders of BreastFest. It is our commitment to awareness and prevention that inspires and leads the work of the Tyanna Foundation.
Since it’s inception in 1999 in Athens, GA., the Tyanna Foundation has worked tirelessly increasing awareness and generating money for breast cancer research, services, education, treatment and patient care for local breast cancer patients and survivors. We are expanding our reach, and have raised over $1,000,000 to help local organizations in Southern New Jersey, Baltimore, Maryland, and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to treat and care for breast cancer patients.
All of the funds raised in each city benefit a local breast center or breast health organization.
Fell’s Point Main Street has been created to proactively generate the revitalization of Fell’s Point’s commercial and historic districts. Our mission is to promote, strengthen and revitalize the commercial district for businesses, residents and visitors, while preserving the district’s historic character
Like neighborhoods nationwide, we are experiencing growing pains associated with the economic, political and social pressures of residential expansion and commercial / urban revitalization. Since these pressures affect the entire community, it is essential that we work together and carefully plan for the future.
That is where the Main Street Program can help. The Baltimore Main Streets program’s directive is to provide assistance to communities like ours in planning, designing and managing their physical environment, specifically, vacant buildings, street-scapes, public facilities and open spaces. It is intended to help the community identify proven solutions for the growth-related problems we are now facing. As a Main Street organization, we provide Fell’s Point businesses and residents with a powerful resource and advocate. And that is something worth embracing.
