Vietnam War veteran Pat describes his cancer as the “toughest battle he ever fought.” Originally seen at Memorial Sloan Kettering, Pat chose St. Luke’s for care that was “second to none” and closer to home.

Patrick, 69, from Bethlehem Township, is no stranger to facing adversity. From growing up in Staten Island to serving in the Vietnam War then working as a Homeland Security federal officer, he’s met plenty of dangerous situations head on. But cancer was a battle unlike any he’s ever faced. But because he put his faith in William R. Burfeind, Jr., MD and St. Luke’s Cancer Center, he’s back to living his life.
