When Pepe developed a cough that wouldn’t go away, doctors thought it was pneumonia.
After Pepe started having difficulty breathing, the family returned to the hospital.
His aunt, Heather, was treated for cancer at St. Jude just a year before.
Families, like Pepe’s, will never receive a bill from St. Jude for anything.
Just when we thought that everything had passed, my grandson was diagnosed.
But they've weathered Pepe’s treatment as a family with St. Jude by their side.
Pepe hopes to be a police officer or basketball player when he grows up.
“When I found out that he had cancer, I didn't know if he would be able to achieve his dream,” said his mom, Tiffany.
Pepe is out of treatment now and returns to St. Jude for checkups.
