Priceless4Purpose offers mental and emotional relief to adults with cancer in MN
Three words we hope never to hear, “You have cancer”, but sadly, we all know someone that has.
Cancer is a physical disease but even more so…an emotional one. With a diagnosis comes worry of uncertainties of physical and financial future combined with overwhelming stress. Priceless4Purpose-The Steve Bartlett Cancer Nonprofit understands this.
We work hard raising funds to grant respite, retreat, “time away” at Mystic Views lodging facility tucked into the northern woods of Minnesota, renowned for its peaceful, relaxing, scenic, pampered atmosphere.
" Merely being in nature for brief periods-even just having it in view-can reduce the flood of stress hormones and improve immune defenses. This was an incredible finding, revealing that nature is like a little drop of morphine for the brain.”
"The wellness of individuals and nations-and clearly the planet-depends on recognizing that contact with nature is essential to human health."

- Priceless4Purpose grants the opportunity to adults diagnosed with cancer alone, or with an adult loved one of their choice up to 3 nights respite time at Mystic Views to rediscover the things that bring them enjoyment without being a financial strain, affording distraction from sights and sounds of doctors and hospitals.
- Adults affected by cancer may celebrate a milestone in treatment, an anniversary, a birthday or just spend quality time with a loved one at Mystic Views located “North of the Tension Zone”. Overlooking a natural private lake, the log cabin look, King/Jacuzzi suite and meals served to the privacy of the guest's suite, allow them a moment to breathe and rejuvenate without added financial burden.
