A Go Fund Me page was created in his behalf with a goal of $75,000 to help him fight cancer.
– Pete was diagnosed with Stage 3 colorectal cancer and is commencing thirteen weeks of five-day-a-week chemo/radiation therapy.
– Pete has had to wait three months to be approved for treatment, during which time his tumor has quadrupled in size, from 3 cm. to 13 cm. He has gone through his savings yet is still reluctant to ask for help, as Finns tend to be private about their problems, being very proud and self-reliant people. The bottom line is that he has no income source to pay for his monthly expenses, such as medicines and certain treatments, rent, car payments, insurance, and gas, which gets him to and from his doctors and treatments. Then, of course, there is food that requires that he eats as healthy as possible to aid his body in fighting the disease.
– I am pleased to report that Pete is getting a little better by the day and is looking forward to replying back to everyone who has helped him in this fight, as soon as his strength has returned. He has lost over 55 pounds but is in good spirits and has been a fighter throughout this difficult journey.
