The mission of the Katie Teets Bradshaw Comfort House, Inc.
The mission of the Katie Teets Bradshaw Comfort House, Inc. is a place where families can spend their last moments with their loved ones in a private setting with all the accommodations that make a house feel like home.
There is no guarantee as to how long we will live; however, we can try and make the most of the time we do have. The time we spend on earth is most importantly bringing love, happiness, and compassion to others. Katie Teets Bradshaw did all of this and did it with grace. Katie lit up a room with her infectious smile, generous heart, and her gentle soul.
The Katie Teets Bradshaw Comfort House came to life because of a spectacular young woman who knew she was destined to do great things. Katie lived her life helping others and even made it her career. Katie attended George Mason University and received her Bachelor of Science in Nursing. Katie served as an RN in Winchester Medical Center’s ICU, as well as an RN at Shenandoah Oncology. On June 25, 2021, shortly after Katie’s 28th birthday, and after a courageous two-year battle, Katie lost her fight with breast cancer. Katie is the driving spirit of this foundation.
Throughout her diagnosis and the grueling battle, Katie voiced, “This isn’t it; I’m destined for something big”. Little did she know her big gift to all would come in the afterlife, looking down from above. Katie’s legacy will live on through The Katie Teets Bradshaw Comfort House.
Although Katie was surrounded by her loved ones when she passed, comfort and a sense of being home was not prevalent. The ones we hold dearest should be in total and complete comfort, even when the end is imminent – including their family and friends. Our goal is to provide a peaceful and comforting atmosphere during the most difficult of times.
We need your support to achieve Katie’s “something big”. The Katie Teets Bradshaw Comfort House will be a place where families can spend their last moments with their loved ones, in a private room with all the accommodations that make a house feel like home.
Our plan is to partner with our friends, family, community, and investors, to help make saying goodbye a little less painful. We would like to ask for your support, whether monetarily, in-kind, or simply volunteering your time, in helping fulfill Katie’s legacy. Any support is greatly appreciated, as we could not exist without the generosity of donors.
Thank you and God bless,
