Our Mission
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 vacations.

Inquire About Our Program

Are you an adult cancer patient who needs a break from cancer? Our mission is to provide adult cancer patients, their caregivers, and their children with a break from cancer at one of our respite locations. Respite locations are decided based on availability and we cannot promise a specific respite location when you inquire.

To be considered, the patient must:

Reside in PA, NJ, NY, DE or MD
Have a physician diagnosis of cancer
Be between the ages of 24-55
Be nominated by a health care professional who is a member of the patient’s oncology team
