Get Involved with FPS

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.
