Can’t give a financial contribution? There are many great ways to help people take a break from cancer. FPS hosts several major events throughout the year, and also many community organized events. We are always looking for hosts, sponsors, donors and volunteers.

Learn How

Are you an adult cancer patient? Our mission is to provide adult cancer patients, their caregivers and their children with a break from cancer at one of our respite locations. Respite locations are decided based on availability and we cannot promise a specific respite location when you inquire.

Are you a healthcare professional? If you are a first time nominator, you must schedule a brief phone in-service to educate yourself with our mission and guidelines. If you are a repeat nominator, please feel free to submit your nomination via the forms you have on file.

Families Facing Cancer Should Never Walk Alone!

For Pete’s Sake, Walk! is a 3-mile fun walk on 4.15.18 at Citizens Bank Park, the home of the Philadelphia Phillies! Please note that our walk will begin at 10 AM this year, registration opens at 9 AM!

Walkers round the stadium concourse as they celebrate the beauty of relationships in their lives and the strength of those who battle cancer. Following the 3-mile route around the concourse, walkers round the bases on the field (weather permitting) and have their photo taken in the dugout!

Certain walkers will get the chance to visit the locker rooms and batting cages...if they reach the appropriate fundraising goal (see Incentives). Please note: registration fees do not count towards your fundraising goals. This event is family friendly (strollers permitted) and is a unique bonding experience to share with friends, family, community groups and coworkers! We'll have fun activities for the kids, yummy snacks and beverages, entertainment and special mascot visitors.

We hope that you'll join us and help prove that love greater than cancer. Your support will help adult cancer patients, their caregivers and their loved ones take a break from the grueling effects of a cancer diagnosis. Join us for a one of a kind event!
