I couldn’t have done.”

Our Cancer Journey

“I was used to being the strong caregiver for my family. Cancer changed that. I’m unable to spend much time with my children due to chemo and radiation treatments. My wife is struggling in her new role as the sole caregiver, managing our household, endless appointments, 2 jobs and being in school.

A lack of quality time in our family, along with the restrictions of COVID, has created uncertainty and anxiety for all of us. We want to focus on each other instead of the chaos and were hopeful that For Pete’s Sake could help us do that.” – Efrain


Our Break From Cancer

Efrain, his wife and their children traveled to Woodloch Resort and are grateful for the time together!

“For Pete’s Sake has done for my family and I, what I couldn’t have done. It is sad that when people read or hear about cancer, from an outsider’s point of view, it just seems like data, statistics, numbers. But when you suffer from cancer, you get to see the faces; the families that struggle, highly energetic motivated men drained to nothing, cheerful children barely able to smile. I am grateful there is an organization like FPS that helps lift our morale, that is always willing to provide a lending hand to those who suffer the most. Thank you!” – Efrain
