Our next Travel Respites are scheduled for July 25th and we continue to provide Staycation Respites and Support beyond the Respite each month.

We are grateful for a generous community that helps us give the most precious of gifts – transformative time to families in the midst of cancer crisis.

FPS patients, caregivers and children have their own unique stories as to how cancer has impacted their lives. We invite you to learn more about how a break from cancer changes lives forever.

This week, 1 family is on a break from cancer!

Meet Karen

Meet Darlene

Darlene is a nurse, so she’s not used to being the patient. The transition of having her wife become her caregiver was difficult, and they needed some time to reconnect away from cancer.

Meet Sharlisa

paige-mcfarling-polaroid

Sharlisa found out she had cancer when she was 33 weeks pregnant. She was advised to deliver her baby at 36 weeks so she could begin treatment. She began chemotherapy immediately and was barely able to hold her baby. Her husband, James, a veteran with his own health issues, had to hold it all together for the family. Their Travel Respite to Woodloch brought them much healing and joy.
