We all need a little magic right now. It's been a challenging year for so many of us in ways we could have never anticipated.

For families facing cancer, it's been especially difficult - treatment has been uncertain, doctor visits have become even more worrisome, and the stress of a pandemic, job insecurity and home schooling has added another layer of difficulty.

But the FPS community has remained as a light and a beacon of hope for families in the cancer journey. Through the generosity of our supporters, we have been able to keep the magic alive by providing travel and staycation respites each month. Please help us continue to provide our life changing mission, and let's continue to make magic together! A portion of your donation will be matched by the Gene Haas Foundation and Hamilton Lane!

As a thank you for your support, your donation will give you complimentary access to an incredible virtual magic experience on #GivingTuesday at 7 PM (12.1.2020) by Brice Harney ( ). YOU MUST MAKE A DONATION BY 5 PM ON 12.1.20 TO RECEIVE AN INVITATION TO THE EXPERIENCE. You'll receive an email from us by 6 PM with information about how to log on and make some magical memories with your loved ones!

P.S. Please share this fundraising page and invite friends to make magic with you.

Thank you to our matching gift sponsors:

About the charity

We address the psychosocial and emotional needs of the young adult cancer patient population and their loved ones. Working with oncology professionals at over 100 hospitals and cancer centers, we provide transformative respite experiences to cancer patients (ages 24-55), their caregivers and their children. We offer our families emotional support that assists them as their journey with cancer continues. Our program helps families recognize it is love, not cancer, that defines them.
