Imagine cancer hitting two members of the same household at the same time. For some families in our respite program, this is a reality of life.

Bill is 41 with testicular cancer, and his wife, Jenn, has breast cancer. The couple has been fighting to support one another through the cancer journey for a year – as Jenn was being treated for breast cancer, they were shocked to hear Bill’s own diagnosis.

You can give Bill and his family a Travel Respite in Maine from August 15 – August 19! There, they can focus on each other and enjoy special family moments away from the stress of their dual treatment schedules. Please donate and help us reach our $3,000 fundraising goal for this month. Donate to August’s goal and, after the respite, Bill will share his family’s experience with you.
