About Our Foundation

The Carpe Diem Foundation was formed by Lauren Menning and Julie Patton after Lauren’s battle with breast cancer in 2020.  Lauren and Julie have been close friends for 18 years and have shared many of life’s events together.  Lauren invited Julie to help support her on her cancer journey knowing that Julie had already helped her sister fight a similar battle several years prior.  After successfully completing her treatments, Lauren and Julie were motivated by an immense sense of gratitude and an overwhelming desire to help others.  They both start each day reciting the mantra “Carpe Diem!” or “Seize the Day!”  and felt this would also be an appropriate philosophy and name for their mission.

Our Top Priorities

It is our mission to be a source of awareness and support to other small, or newly formed, organizations that are making a difference in the lives of others.
