In 2019, Chloe launched The Chloe Temtchine Foundation (TCTF), a non-profit organization dedicated to using entertainment in an effort to inspire and empower people living with Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) and other life-threatening illnesses.
Funds raised through TCTF help support The Smile Tour. The funds raised from The Chloe Temtchine Foundation offset expenses for The Smile Tour that are not covered by sponsorships and grants.
The Chloe Temtchine Foundation endeavors to generate public awareness of Pulmonary Arterial Hypertension (PAH) and end-stage lung diseases through advocacy, community outreach, and entertainment in the hopes that one day there will be a cure.
When Chloe debuted Be Brave in 2014, the song became an immediate iTunes sensation. The lyrics resonated for so many people struggling with PAH and other chronic illnesses.
Well you can be brave
And you can stand tall
Wipe all your tears away
When they come
And you can be saved
When you lose it all
In all the darkness light is found
So don't let it drag you down
The Pulmonary Hypertension (PH) community immediately adopted Be Brave as its anthem, and pharmaceutical companies purchased over 120,000 copies to send to their clients.
Within days of its release, Chloe’s email inbox was flooded with letters from fans eager to connect with her, to share their stories, and to seek advice. Chloe had a very special connection with one fan in particular, Humayra Bodhania, a beautiful eight-year-old girl with PH and a big, beautiful smile.
The devastating and untimely death of this one fan, Humayra, inspired Chloe to establish the The Chloe Temtchine Foundation and to launch The Smile Tour.
Your tax-deductible gift to TCTF will help support the foundation’s mission of bringing an end to PH through advocacy, community outreach, and entertainment - The Smile Tour.
You can help Chloe bring a smile to patients in hospitals struggling with PAH and other life-threatening illnesses, day after day, month after month, and year after year.
With greater awareness comes earlier diagnosis, and ultimately leads us one step closer to a cure.
