Sigma Chapter's Charity of Choice 2013-2014

For Pete's Sake

For Pete's Sake

        Congratulations! The Sigma Chapter's goal of $10,000 has been reached!


        Sigma Chapter of Gamma Iota Sigma is proud to announce our 2013-2014 academic year Charity of Choice, For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation. For Pete’s Sake Cancer Respite Foundation 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 excursion to select vacation locations along the East Coast and in the Caribbean. The lasting memories from their respites help our patients recognize that it is their priceless lives, not cancer, that defines them. We aim 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.
For Pete’s Sake, join us in giving people a break from cancer!
