Eric's Story

Join Us in Supporting Eric Cuccaro: A True Hero Fighting Cancer

In the face of adversity, true heroes emerge. Meet Eric Cuccaro, a retired Navy Reserves veteran, a devoted husband to Paige for over three decades, a loving father to four incredible daughters, grandfather of 3, and an unwavering pillar of strength within his community. Today, we invite you to rally behind Eric and his family as they battle against the odds and navigate through challenging times.

Eric's journey has been marked by courage, resilience, and selflessness. Having served our country with honor and distinction, Eric dedicated years of his life to safeguarding the freedoms we hold dear. But fate dealt him a difficult hand when he was diagnosed with colon cancer, a formidable foe that he now confronts head-on.

Despite the immense challenges that cancer has brought into Eric's life, his spirit remains unyielding. Throughout his treatment, he has shown remarkable bravery, inspiring those around him with his unwavering determination and positive outlook. However, the burdens of his illness have taken their toll on Eric's family, with the added strain of financial difficulties compounding their already heavy load.

For more than two decades, Eric worked diligently for Sprint, and then T-Mobile when Sprint was acquired by them. He was one of the fortunate who was kept on in the transition, pouring his heart and soul into his job. However, when he had to take a short-term disability leave to receive life-saving treatment, T-Mobile immediately terminated his position. To make matters worse, bureaucracy and red tape, combined with T-Mobile inexplicably delaying Eric's severance pay, has left him and his family in a state of uncertainty. He is unable to work due to his illness, and now they face the very real danger of financial ruin, and losing their cherished home.

But the story doesn't end here. It is within our power to make a difference in Eric's life and help alleviate the burdens that weigh heavily on his family. We invite you to join us at a spaghetti dinner fundraiser, an evening filled with warmth, compassion, and unwavering support. This event will be a celebration of Eric's indomitable spirit, a testament to the power of unity, and an opportunity for us to stand shoulder to shoulder with a man who has given so much to his family, his country and his community.

Every dollar raised at this fundraiser will go directly towards supporting Eric and his family in their time of need. Let's come together as a community, as friends, as compassionate individuals who recognize the power of collective action and the profound impact we can have on someone's life.

Together, we can make a difference. Together, we can ensure that Eric and his family maintain the stability and security they deserve. By attending this heartfelt event and contributing to the cause, you will be supporting a true hero—one who has selflessly dedicated his life to protecting our freedom and is now in need of our assistance.

Mark your calendars and join us at the spaghetti dinner fundraiser for Eric Cuccaro. Let us rally behind him, offering our unwavering support and demonstrating that together, we can overcome any obstacle. It's time to make a tangible difference in the life of a man who has given so much to others.
