His mother's facebook post:

"With great sorrow and pain we are mourning our oldest son Eitan who passed away early this morning after a heroic fight with cancer. The funeral will take place at 17:30 at Har HaMenuchot, Jerusalem.
We will be sitting shiva at our home, Dostrovsky 9, Talpiot, Jerusalem."

After 8,5 years living with CRC, Pete passed away on 17/4/2012. We had lots of quality time, we said our goodbyes! I am at peace because he doesn't suffer anymore! He is now better off with the Lord! We will surely miss him very very much!!
