Timeshare Resale Leader Sends Cancer Survivor to Myrtle Beach

Timeshare Resale Leader Sends Cancer Survivor to Myrtle Beach

As Send Me On Vacation explains, they are: “Changing lives, one vacation at a time.” And as part of the timeshare resale, vacation ownership, and resort industries, we are excited to have the opportunity to be part of this important effort.

Timeshare Resale Leader Sends Cancer Survivor to Myrtle Beach

SellMyTimeshareNOW.com and VacationOwnership.com have proudly announced that they recently provided a week’s vacation for a female breast cancer survivor participating in the Send Me On Vacation program, which they help to sponsor.

Send Me On Vacation is a 501(c)(3) program that provides a complimentary weeklong vacation for women with breast cancer who have completed their treatments and need a place to rejuvenate and heal. Since the charity was first launched in 2010, over 18 cancer survivors have enjoyed vacations at timeshare resorts around the world.

According to Cathy Backus, VP of Business Development for ICE Gallery, who founded the non-profit charity, “After their treatments are completed, we believe the first step in recovery is to provide these survivors with the comfort of a well-deserved vacation. We are grateful for assistance from companies like SellMyTimeshareNOW.com and VacationOwnership.com that have helped make a difference in the lives of these women.”

Adds Jason Tremblay, Founder of SellMyTimeshareNOW.com and VacationOwnership.com, the timeshare industry’s leading resale brokerage and Internet advertising companies, “We have supported Send Me On Vacation since its inception and are proud to help provide accommodations in luxury timeshare accommodations for these cancer survivors.”

Taneta Blanden is a cancer survivor who enjoyed a timeshare holiday at the Schooner II Beach & Racquet Club in Myrtle Beach, S.C. through Send Me On Vacation. In December 2009, when she was 39, her world came to a crashing halt after she found a lump in her breast. During the following year, she says that her strength and faith were tested to their limits and her finances were in total ruin.

“Instead of taking my first trip on a cruise which I had saved for to celebrate my 40th birthday,” says Taneta, “I spent that year hoping to see another day. Today I’m in remission and I was able to see my kids graduate. I’m very thankful to all those who have been so kind to me. This year I was gifted a wonderful full week’s vacation to Myrtle Beach in a beautiful two-bedroom condo with travel and food expenses included. There was no way I would have been able to take a break like this and be able to relax and reflect on my life and the blessings I’ve received in being able to continue to see my loved ones.”

Hospitality professionals who would like to donate to the program should contact [email protected] The Vacation Donation program allows for a donation of a vacation in exchange for charitable tax credit.
