For Pete's Sake Cancer Respite Foundation


For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation enables cancer patients and their loved ones to strengthen, deepen and unify their relationships by creating unforgettable and lasting respite experiences.

Our Cancer Respite Program includes two forms, the Travel Respite and the Staycation Respite.  Both experiences are transformative and address the emotional, psychosocial, financial, physical and spiritual traumas that families confront with a cancer diagnosis. Our Cancer Respite Program complements traditional treatment and the respite experience plays a crucial role in the patient continuum of care.

FPS works with oncology professionals at leading cancer centers to create these care-free, cost-free respite experiences for an underserved patient population.  Patients (ages 21-55 and nominated by a member of their oncology team), caregivers and their children receive a Travel Respite experience, or if they are unable to travel due to advanced stage cancer, they receive a Staycation Respite experience in their own home.  Both forms of respite will forever change lives.

After a respite experience, FPS continues to provide priceless emotional support as we partner with community members and our families to create small “mini breaks” throughout the year.
