Crossing the Finish Line

Type: 
Organization
Description: 

Crossing the Finish Line is a non-profit organization that assists young adult cancer patients and their caregiver. Inspired by the late Peter R. Bossow, Jr., Crossing the Finish Line offers the young adult cancer patient and the family a retreat from the unyielding physical and emotional demands of treatment — a hopeful respite during the throes of a courageous battle. Our patients are our "sailors" and the retreat becomes their "excursion". Eligible candidates, along with their caregiver, will receive a one-week all expense paid excursion to select locations in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, South Carolina, Florida and California. We invite you to join the crew of Crossing the Finish Line as together we strengthen the hearts of young adult cancer patients and their families. Welcome aboard!
