Donna and her husband learned to laugh again!

“On our FPS Respite Vacation, we forgot about cancer, illness, fear and worry.”

Our Cancer Journey

“I was diagnosed with breast cancer at 40 years old, the diagnosis made a dramatic impact on my family. I am more focused on my children during this difficult time. I want them to retain their happy spirits, ensure a sense of normalcy and create memories that they will always remember positively. We have not had the opportunity to take a real family vacation due to work demands and financial constraints. I think the kids are at an age to enjoy and appreciate a vacation where they can forget about my cancer for a while.”

Our Break From Cancer

“We are so grateful for our FPS respite vacation to Florida! Reducing my stress and having a break to focus simply on spending time with my family improves my overall well-being and outlook. Our children will look back at this time as a memorable vacation. It alleviated the stress and worry they experience as they feel hopeless in my cancer battle.

This trip enabled me to prioritize and shift my focus to pay attention to appreciating special moments and making time for joy.”
