In Memory of Greg Sandoval

“The Lord gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak. Even youths grow tired and weary, and young men stumble and fall; but those who hope in the Lord will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” - Isaiah 40:29-31

If love, faith and courage could cure cancer, it would never have stood a chance against Greg Sandoval. He was a self-made man who created his own success and fought for everything he believed in. He was a beloved husband, a devoted father, and a cherished Pop Pop. He was a most loyal friend and a true inspiration to those fortunate enough to know him. He was completely selfless and particularly when it came to his family.

Unfortunately, in January of 2022, he would begin the biggest fight of his life when diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. After eight short months, of intensive chemotherapy and immunotherapy - taking every ounce of his strength - our champion has finally gone to rest. It was our family’s greatest honor to fight alongside him for those short months…and for him, we will continue to contribute to the fight against Pancreatic Cancer.

Even though we weren’t able to save our hero, our hope is that there will be a day where there is a cure for Pancreatic Cancer and someone else is able to save their hero. We ask that in lieu of flowers, you would help us honor this incredible man’s legacy by giving back to the hospital that carried us through this fight. We believe that the care that was given to him and our family at White Plains Hospital gave us extra precious time with him that we might not have otherwise had. The Palliative Care team, specifically, guided us through the unimaginable, and our prayer is that with our help, they might continue to bring comfort & love to families like ours, that need it most.

We will forever be grateful for the life, love and devotion he gave to us and will continue to be blessed by this warrior’s life. We find comfort knowing he has found rest and peace in the hands of his Lord and look forward to the day we will meet again in Heaven.

“ I have heard of You by the hearing of the ear, but now my eyes see You” - Job 42:5
