Our Cancer Journey

“I feel so fortunate that my oncology team nominated me and my family for a Travel Respite. Through this nomination I learned about all the wonderful work that For Pete’s Sake does. As a patient that has spent the last seven months focusing on surviving cancer, so many other aspects of my life were neglected. Towards the end of chemotherapy, I remember specifically thinking how great it would be to do something with my family that did not revolve around treatment.

The experiences that For Pete’s Sake provides to families like mine are priceless. It’s so wonderful that after the emotional, physical, and financial burden of cancer, there is someone there who is willing to care for a patient and their family. For Pete’s Sake is helping me and my loved ones regain what cancer tried to take.”
