  • Perches Funeral Home

    PERCHES FUNERAL HOMES

    Salvador Perches is no stranger to cancer. He lost his father to cancer and accompanied his girlfriend, Chia Wollschlager, for treatment as she battled breast cancer. When Wollschlager wanted to create Chia’s Silver Lining, an online platform that addresses the non-medical gaps associated with cancer and allows family and friends to show their love, compassion and support, Perches was on board not only to help his girlfriend, but also all of those that a cancer diagnosis can impact. “Even though you may not be the one diagnosed with cancer, it affects you when you care for a loved one. When I lost my father and when my girlfriend was diagnosed with cancer, there were no support groups or a resource I could turn to for answers,” Perches said. The irony of this story is that Wollschlager serves as curator of the El Paso Funeral Museum and Perches as owner of Perches Funeral Homes and cemetery properties. But according to them, Chia’s Silver Lining is all about an appreciation of and a hope for a better life. “It’s all about life. If we can help cancer patients, survivors, family and friends through this difficult time, we will have accomplished our mission. Chia’s Silver Lining is a means to provide positive energy into these lives and to bring about change for the better,” Perches Says.
