Our mission is worthy of your support

Learn from Jeff and his wife Karen why escapes are so important
to those with cancer and their families ...



“I have no words to fully describe the total fun and adventure it was to be spoiled and treated like VIPs…”

- Bill, Recipient



“It was nice to be pampered because usually I’m the one taking care of everybody else. For a few days I could relax and forget about getting to doctor’s appointments and paying medical bills. The experience regenerated me and allowed me to spend some precious time with my daughters.”

- Christine, Recipient
