FPS Families Enjoy Time Together at the Beach!
As featured in the Sea Isle News:
For a few precious hours Wednesday, Tammy Grosso was able to temporarily forget about all of the consultations with her oncologists, her chemotherapy treatments and the cancer that threatens her life.
She spent the day on the beach in Sea Isle City with her 17-year-old son, Christian, and 13-year-old daughter, Amanda, while enjoying a getaway from the emotional and physical toll of cancer.
“I want to spend as much time as I can with my kids,” said Grosso, a single mother who also has a 15-year-old son named Micah.
Grosso and her children were part of a group of nearly 40 people who came to Sea Isle for a relaxing outing organized by a nonprofit organization called For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation.
Normally, For Pete’s Sake and its sponsors team up to send cancer patients and their family members on weeklong trips to the Jersey Shore and other vacation destinations.
On Wednesday, the organization invited some cancer patients and their loved ones to Sea Isle for a sojourn at the 46th Street beach to help ease the stress of cancer – if only for a few hours.
