An Important Update From For Pete’s Sake
Our Respite Program continues during this isolating time!
When families facing cancer need community the most, FPS is here to help!
Despite all odds, we closed the 2019-20 fiscal year on a high note, having provided the gift of respite to 21 families at Woodloch Resort in June! These respites inspire hope and unite us in the fight against cancer. We leave you with these smiles shown in the above End of Year Recap Video – and our gratitude for sharing your love with families facing cancer. Relish in the accomplishments we’ve made together as a community.
With your support, our FPS staff and volunteers have worked hard to maintain our mission amidst the COVID-19 crisis. As we enter the summer months, often a slow time for us, we have strategically decided to take our own “reset respite” to self-reflect and look forward to what For Pete’s Sake will look like in the years to come. The future looks bright!
Our office will operate with limited staff for July and August. During this time, FPS will continue to be a resource for families facing cancer. We will fulfill our mission with our Staycation Respite Program which has been well received by our nominators and patients.
We are now accepting limited nominations from oncology professionals in both programs. If you are a new nominator, contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your in-service. During this pandemic, our Travel Respite Program is focused on group respites with our partner, Woodloch Resorts. In August, we have multiple families visiting Woodloch at month’s end.
Enjoy your summer; please call our office at 267-708-0521 or email me if you have any questions.
