For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation (formerly Crossing the Finish Line) is a non-profit organization that assists adult cancer patients, their caregivers and loved ones. Inspired by the late Peter R. Bossow, Jr., we give these patients a break from cancer in a secure and comfortable environment.
Eligible patients, along with their caregivers, receive a one-week expense-paid respite vacation to select locations along the East Coast and in the Caribbean. For Pete’s Sake owns two respite homes near Orlando, Florida and relies on donated vacation homes to supplement additional stays.
The lasting memories from their respites help the patients recognize that it is their priceless lives, not cancer, that defines them. For Pete’s Sake aims to strengthen the hearts, minds, and souls of these courageous individuals as they battle the psychological, emotional, economic, and spiritual trauma that accompanies a cancer diagnosis.
Community Chiropractic Center has been a dedicated partner of For Pete’s Sake for the past 2 years and we donated over $4000 last year through our Checkups for Charity program. Through this program, we are able to attend many local community and business events including health fairs, lunch and learns, and stress free breaks. These events afford us the opportunity to teach residents about the benefits of chiropractic care, while still being able to support a worthy cause! Please contact us at the office if you would interested in taking advantage of this great opportunity!
