We Like Mike

Mike Finnerty had 15 months of blissful, cancer-free living up until 02/14/2019.


On that date, his scan results showed very high markers for the return of cancer producing cells. Unfortunately, there is a very high percentage of cancer recurrence if you have stage III colon cancer, which was Mike’s previous diagnosis.


After seven (7) trips to the Mayo Clinic entailing two (2) colonoscopies, one (1) PET Scan, two (2) MRI scans and eleven (11) doctoral consultations, the consensus is that Mike will need to immediately engage in another round of eight (8) lethal chemical therapy infusion sessions.  He will begin chemo on 03/28/2019. Once these sessions are completed, he will undergo another round of scans to determine the level of success from the chemo. 


Pending the outcome of those scans, he may have to have further abdominal surgery to eradicate anything that has managed to escape these lethal chemicals. 


Mike had a good year in business in 2018. It allowed him to pay back all the personal loans that had accumulated during his first round of fighting cancer in 2017. He was also able to pay off all the health care balances that had accumulated during this same period.


He thought that he would commence 2019 cancer- and debt-free and get to work making a plentiful living again. He has no current cash reserves and is unsure as to how this next round of infusions will affect his overall ability to earn a consistent income in the real estate business.


Mike needs us to rally around him and ensure that his sole focus is his health and beating cancer AGAIN. Please consider giving, no matter the amount. Each penny is a penny he doesn’t have to worry about.

Thank you!
