I am participating in the For Pete’s Sake’s Leaders for Love is Greater Than Cancer initiative! This initiative is aimed at encouraging Philadelphia business leaders to be a part of their advocacy and advancement efforts to support their mission through participation in their annual For Pete’s Sake, Walk! at Citizens Bank Park on April 26, 2020.

I have chosen to join the Leaders for Love is Greater Than Cancer initiative because I was truly moved after attending the 19th Annual Beach Ball Gala. The event was such a wonderful experience and the passion that the organization, oncology professionals and families all demonstrate truly restores hope in so many ways. After attending the event, I knew that I wanted to be a part of their organization.

The For Pete’s Sake mission inspires me because unfortunately almost everyone, in some form, has personally known someone with cancer. Having seen the impact that cancer treatments have on the patient and their families, I understand the need and the benefit that a respite experience can have. Being able to provide an experience that can provide a slight reprieve in what has become the norm for these families is unbelievable. Hearing the stories from For Pete’s Sake’s travelers put their respite mission into perspective and made me realize that I can do more. The Leaders for Love is Greater Than Cancer initiative has inspired me to help For Pete’s Sake increase their reach and provide more respites every year. Will you join me in ensuring families facing cancer never walk alone?
