Help Strengthen Our Mission and Pete’s Dream
Our Cancer Respite Program includes two forms, the Travel Respite and the Staycation Respite. Both experiences are transformative and address the emotional, psychosocial, financial, physical and spiritual traumas that families confront with a cancer diagnosis. Our Cancer Respite Program complements traditional treatment and the Respite Experience plays a crucial role in the patient continuum of care.
FPS works with oncology professionals at leading cancer centers to create care-free, cost-free respite experiences for underserved patients. Patients (ages 21-55 and nominated by a member of their oncology team), caregivers, and their children receive a Travel Respite Experience, or if they cannot travel due to advanced-stage cancer, they receive a Staycation Respite Experience in their own home. Both forms of respite will forever change lives.
For families in the FPS Program, we offer ongoing support beyond the respite that assists them as their journey with cancer continues. This support continues to address our seven health pillars through in-person events, online education, and access to additional resources, including bereavement care.
We have served thousands of people, and our work has been recognized by The Philadelphia Inquirer, Fox Chase Cancer Center, Fox News, People Magazine, Major League Baseball, Chick-fil-A, Comcast Newsmakers, University of PA Health System, and LIVESTRONG.
Join us as we help hundreds of people take a break from cancer each year!
Headquartered in Plymouth Meeting, PA, For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation is a rapidly growing organization. We invite you to learn about opportunities to join the FPS Family.
