“When I start to get nervous, my husband reminds me to go back to Disney in my mind.”


Mia traveled to the FPS home near Orlando, FL in January 2011.  On her evaluation form she wrote, "Our trip happened to fall on the week right before my first post-treatment scans.  It was the BEST distraction from my anxiety!  The fact that my husband didn't have to worry about money (due to the cash stipend we received from FPS) was spectacular!

My 3 1/2 year old had an amazing time with my husband and I..  I totally focused on him - and nothing stressful - for one entire week.  The sunshine and ice ceam didn't hurt, either! We are so appreciative for this experience and for all the wonderful work that FPS does.  When I start to get nervous, my husband reminds me to go back to Disney in my mind."

Mia wants to help future travelers take a break from cancer!  Please view her FPS fundraising page here.

Mia 's Trip Details

  • Hi Mia! We may be related, that is, I may be related to your husband if he is the Blitstein. The family is from Trochenbrod (was Russia or Poland, now Ukraine) and settled in Chicago and Baltimore. There is also a large branch in Philadelphia. My website is www.bealeeve.com and my email paula@bealeeve.com. My best to you for a Refuah Shleimah, a complete and speedy recovery.
