They enjoyed Disney World, Hollywood Studios, Universal and Sea World. But the best gift to them was having time with the family away from a busy life and cancer treatments. This weeklong family vacation allowed them to take a break and make memories that will last a lifetime. Scroll down to watch a video of Michelle and her family talking about this special vacation to Florida.
For Pete's Sake was founded by a wife honoring the life of her husband Pete Bossow, who lost his battle with testicular cancer at the age of 30 in 1999. Pete wanted to give cancer patients and their families the chance to strengthen, deepen and unify their relationships by creating unforgettable and lasting respite vacations. And, it's a great way to relax in the midst of cancer crisis. For Pete’s Sake, take a break - from cancer.
And, over 800 cancer patients and family members in Pennsylvania have had the chance to do that thanks to Pete.
To be considered for a Respite Vacation, a patient must:
- Have a physician diagnosis of cancer
- Be between the ages of 24-50
- Reside in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, or Delaware
