Remember your loved one and provide respite to another family in crisis. 

Many of our supporters choose to help others in their own times of crisis, especially with the passing of a loved one.  Thus, families choose to direct donations to FPS in an obituary notice or make a gift on the anniversary of a loved one’s passing.

For those who want to invite others to support a memorial via an obituary or life celebration, we suggest using our Remembrance pages.  You can submit a favorite photo and share a heartwarming story with words of comfort about your loved on a personal page and also, invite others to do the same.

Are you interested in making a memorial donation via a loved one’s page or for someone special?  You can do so here and we thank you for your support.

Request a Memorial Kit

Every year, dozens of families remember their loved ones in a unique and meaningful way by directing donations in lieu of flowers to For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation in an obituary notice.  In addition to the Remembrance pages, for those directing donations in an obituary, we offer a complimentary memorial kit and supportive materials for the family for display at the life celebration. The kit includes beautiful cards to share with any service attendees about the impact of your support on families facing cancer and personalized life celebration cards with a photo of your loved one!  View a sample of these cards at the top of this page.

We also provide some helpful grief resources that we have used throughout the years.  Saying goodbye is never easy and we want to help you and your family through this journey!  Please fill out this form to receive your kit and we will be in touch with you within one business day.  If you have any questions about memorial gifts, please contact our Mission Coordinator, Donna Esterle, at or call our office at 267.708.0510.  We are here to walk with you on this difficult path!
