On Sunday, May 19th, the Carsyn Neille Foundation will be hosting the 3rd Annual Unite, Heal + Thrive, a community fundraising event including a lunch and auction. This year’s event will be hosted at a private residence*, known as the Steele Ranch, a 5 acre avocado ranch nestled in a gated community in the foothills between Valley Center and Escondido. The event will include interactive Heal + Thrive stations, a farm to fork dining experience provided by EAT Marketplace, entertainment, silent auctions and raise the paddle. Our goal is to raise funds to serve and contribute to the quality of life of childhood cancer families with our Rooms to Heal by Carsyn Neille, Rooms to Thrive™️ and Comfort Kit programs.
Join us for this unique experience that unites our community of Comfort Creators, collaborators and the families we love for a magical time and philanthropy.

The Carsyn Neille Foundation is a community-driven, grassroots organization that is passionate about improving the quality of life of children affected by childhood cancer and dedicated to helping families heal and thrive through our therapeutic living renovations.
The Carsyn Neille Foundation is a passion project birthed from our family’s own personal tragedy. Our mission is to support and comfort families affected by childhood cancer through the transformation of their interior home spaces, providing them a sanctuary and a advantage towards healing and thriving. By creating spaces that are not only beautiful, but that are sustainable and have less of a toxic load to the environment, we assist in increasing the quality of life for each family, both in treatment and beyond. We firmly believe that one’s interior living space can trigger the brain's healing process and potentially contribute to more than 30% of any cure.
Carsyn Neille Foundation Programs
Rooms to Thrive™ provides families with a child affected by childhood cancer a safe, sustainable and non toxic Room to heal and thrive during and/or after treatment. Rooms to Heal by Carsyn Neille provides parents who have lost a child to cancer a space to grieve and heal in.
"Each family we’ve had the opportunity to serve has not only contributed to our healing process with losing Carsyn but has given us the opportunity to connect intimately and become a part of their journey towards healing and thrivorship." - Kia Davis, Founder
From creating a whimsical woodland bedroom for six year old Ella diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of three; transforming a blank space into a rustic blue oasis for 10 year old Rina diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia – Philadelphia Chromosome at the age of 5; to creating a relaxing Moana themed space for a sweet 6 year old Isabella also diagnosed with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia at the age of four; each experience has exposed the resilience in a community overlooked, has allowed awareness about the importance of keeping your environment clean from invisible toxins that may contribute to many different types of cancer spread and, has created a ripple effect of philanthropy within each city that has graciously joined their efforts to support, comfort and increase the quality of life for each child.

OUR COMFORT COALITION OF CONTRACTORS + INTERIOR DESIGNERS
committed to our standards of using sustainable nontoxic, healthful materials
Our Coalition of Interior Designers offers leading interior designers and professionals within the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) industry a platform to gift their creative talents to families affected by childhood cancer, and use their knowledge to collaborate with the families so they may maximize the quality of lives for each child. Together, we understand that a sustainable, non-toxic environment has a powerful impact on our healing, as it lowers health risks for all cancer patients and survivors. We believe this new coalition will broaden our impact, and allow more talented individuals with a heart for healing to contribute to the quality of life of those who need it most.
