About For Pete’s Sake

New York Region


For Pete’s Sake is based in Pennsylvania but we are thoughtfully expanding our mission to new areas! Our New York Region, under the guidance of FPS staff member, Amber Mercado, serves the Greater New York area and began with a fundraiser in 2013. In 2018, we assembled a council that serves the New York area.

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 bringing For Pete’s Sake to your area, please contact Marci@takeabreakfromcancer.org.

Our council educates New York and North Jersey Oncology Teams about the FPS nomination process, and hosts fundraising events throughout the year. We are hoping to host more community events this year, if you have an idea please contact us!
