About For Pete’s Sake Foundation

Incorporated in September 2002, the For Pete’s Sake Foundation is a volunteer-run organization that strives to maximize relief to families affected by the disease Wiskott-Aldrich Sydrome. Wiskott – Aldrich syndrome, also known as WAS, is a primary immune deficiency disease. The organization’s goal is to distribute at least 90% of every dollar raised to support the present and future needs of families affected by the disease and to support WAS research.

Creating and growing the For Pete’s Sake Foundation began as a personal crusade by the friends and family of P.J. Lyle. None of them had heard of the disease until it threatened to take the life of the young son of Peter and Beth Lyle. The Lyle’s story is both inspiring and heartbreaking. Media coverage of their story brought a torrent of contributions to the foundation, but also caught the attention of WAS families who thought no one was out there to help.
