As part of our Travel Respite Program, our FPS Community Respite at Woodloch will provide opportunities to connect with other FPS families, as well as a representative from our staff. We believe the gift of time is most precious for families battling cancer. Time to create priceless memories together. Time to love and remember that cancer does not define who they are. The respite helps the patient and caregiver to re-connect, re-charge, and re-focus their attentions to one another.

Our Staycation Respite Program is Open for Nominations!

Our Staycation Program - offers a "Take a Break at Home Box" to eligible patients and equips families with resources for respite and reflection when a family is unable to travel because of advanced stage cancer and allows families to create priceless, memorable and magical moments together in their homes. The Staycation Program has blossomed with the “Take a Break at Home Box,” which includes curated items to help families re-connect while safe at home.

Together we can provide a chance for families to come together, create priceless memories, and revitalize their mind, body, and spirit as they take a break from cancer.
