Sam Rodriguez's wife Erika was diagnosed with cancer when their twin sons were only two years old. Erika tragically passed away, but Sam did everything he could to keep moving forward. Then the Rodriguez family discovered the heart-wrenching news that one of the twins, 10-year-old "Warrior" Jake, has cancer.

Despite facing hardship, the family is staying strong and raising funds for The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS), specifically the LLS Children's Initiative. The organization has helped the family immensely, and will continue to help other kids like Warrior Jake who are battling against cancer.
