Peter Czerwinski, better known by his stage name Furious Pete, has never been one to shy away from a challenge. The Canadian competitive eater
currently holds 14 Guinness World Records and is a force on YouTube
with nearly 4 million subscribers.
In 2014, after learning that he had testicular cancer, the YouTuber faced the diagnosis head on, like many of the challenges he faces on his channel. He underwent surgery to remove his left testicle and one round of radiation to target any cells that may have been left behind. Unfortunately, eight months later, during a routine CT scan, doctors discovered several enlarged lymph nodes and suggested chemotherapy as treatment.
With his family, friends and fans supporting him, Czerwinski embarked on his second journey to battle this disease. He has an optimism that he says helps him during the difficult times and he's confident in the doctors and researchers at Princess Margaret Cancer Centre.
Since his diagnosis, Czerwinski has been an advocate for testicular cancer research and is supporting The Princess Margaret by openly speaking about his journey on several of his YouTube videos
. He also wants to give back
to the incredible team that's supporting him.
Pete hopes his #TeamFurious community of supporters will donate today
to help him crush cancer once and for all.
