About For Pete’s Sake

New York Chapter

For Pete’s Sake is based in Pennsylvania but we are thoughtfully expanding our mission to new areas! Our New York Chapter, under the guidance of FPS staff member, Amber Mercado, serves the Greater New York area and was founded in Fall 2013.

Our goal is to raise funds and awareness for the mission of For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation, giving local patients and their loved ones a break from cancer. To learn more or if you’re interested in starting a For Pete’s Sake Chapter in your own area, please contact Marci@takeabreakfromcancer.org.


Our chapter educates New York and North Jersey Oncology Teams about the FPS nomination process, and hosts fundraising events throughout the year. We have an annual Happy Hour in midtown Manhattan in March and are hosting a walk in Fall 2019. Check back for more details on these events!
