To provide some reprieve for young adult cancer patients, the Susan Mortensen Turley Foundation sponsors One Weekend Away – a no-cost, restful and relaxing weekend in a setting where they can escape their all-consuming pressures and enjoy a peaceful surrounding.
To a young adult, the diagnosis of cancer can shatter career and family dreams, delay or completely derail educational plans, and completely overwhelm an individual’s life. Providing this opportunity to spend precious hours with their loved ones may truly be a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
By partnering with physicians, oncology services and hospitals – AND YOU, we can identify those who might benefit by taking a time-out. The Susan Mortensen Turley Foundation partners with the hospitality industry to provide restful, peaceful and comfortable surroundings for that One Weekend Away. Your donations help make this much needed and deeply appreciated opportunity a reality.
Our vision is that by providing this service, the quality of life for these individuals will be strengthened and enhanced.
We can’t cure their disease, but we can provide relief and support during their battle.
If you or someone you know could benefit from One Weekend Away, please email us.
