October 5, 2014 was a day that started what has been a long journey for the Fenske family. After experiencing troubling stomach pain, Peter was admitted to the hospital for a case of pancreatitis. After three days, it was determined that Peter had gallbladder disease. On November 10th, Peter had his gallbladder removed. During the operation, the doctors found cysts on Peter’s liver and a growth in his gallbladder. After two weeks, his doctor called and said the word no one ever wants to hear: cancer. After some treatments in Virginia, the Fenske’s decided the best place to treat Peter would be at the Cancer Treatment Center in Philadelphia, PA.
Their journey has been filled with much joy and much sorrow – many highs and many lows. Communities have rallied around to support the family through many, many prayers, cooking meals, and helping with the Fenske’s two sweet, young children Allison and Aiden.
There are so many expenses involved in battling cancer. These expenses come at a time when the family needs to focus on healing and supporting each other, and not worrying about how additional expenses will be met.
We are holding a raffle to win a half day of beauty at Salon Khouri — all monies raised will be donated to Peter’s GoFundMe to help the family with expenses. The half day of beauty will include a hair color and cut, a conditioning treatment, a Signature Facial, a brow wax and a paraffin hand treatment.
Additionally, the gracious owners of Kid Junction in Chantilly, VA have donated 10 passes to Kid Junction, Chantilly.
Raffle tickets are $5 each. You can purchase raffle tickets using the buttons below. You will have the option to choose more than one raffle ticket on the next screen — the more you purchase, the better your odds are, and you are helping lighten the financial burden of the Fenkse’s, and for that, we are so grateful:
