A message from our ceo & founder

During this pandemic, we continue to offer our Travel Respite Program to families and are hosting both individual and community respites with the help of our travel partner, Woodloch Resorts. Nominators, click here for upcoming respite information! For patients with advanced stage cancer and unable to travel, we offer a Staycation Respite program.  For more information about these programs, email or call us at our office at 267.708.0510.

We continue to diversify our revenue so that we can meet the needs of our special families.  From hosting a Corn Hole Tournament to having Virtual Trivia, we improvise and find outreach methods!  Take a look at how you can help on our Host an Event page.

Please know we are always here to make life better for families facing cancer. Thank you for your continued support.

P.S. We leave you with these smiles shown in our End of Year Recap Video  as our fiscal year ended amid the pandemic in June, 2020, and we extend to YOU for sharing your love with families facing cancer. Relish in the accomplishments we’ve made together as a community. The future looks bright!
