Stephen and His Family Found Hope

“You don’t realize that you are not breathing until you are finally given the chance to breathe. And this is what that trip was to us, a time to catch our breath.”

THE Cancer Journey

“Nate was diagnosed with testicular carcinoma in April 2018, he started chemotherapy two months later and the entire hospital staff found him to be a joy to be around. A break away from cancer would give him and his girlfriend, Laura, a chance to reconnect and rekindle their relationship” – Nate’s Social Worker at Jefferson Cancer Center.

“Vacation time would be a great way to clear my mind and reset to normal after my time dealing with cancer” – Nate

Our Break From Cancer

“This respite vacation to Cancun was an amazing time for Laura and I to get away from home and really relax and recharge. We are so thankful for this opportunity and the experience is one we will cherish forever.

Laura is the person who has been there since day 1 of my diagnosis. She endured a lot of stress over the course of my treatment. She was thankful to enjoy the sun and happiness of our respite!

My entire family was thankful that we were able to set aside this time to relax. ” – Nate
