Big Mikes family relief fund!!

Over the holidays my friend Mike was diagnosed with Stage 4 Pancreatic Cancer. He will be starting chemotherapy on Jan 29th. Mike says he is ready to fight. Being a single dad with 3 kids he is going to struggle with a lot over the next while, and I thought maybe  by starting this we could help this battle for him and his family go a little smoother. We all know times are tough or can be for everyone financially so if you can spare anything for Big Mike and his family while they go through this it it would be greatly appreciated.

Mike has always been a caring, kind, funny man with a heart of gold and an amazing work ethic. He is a fantastic dad who loves his children dearly. They are the reason he has worked so hard in life. Mike enjoys going to his kids sports games, going camping, playing dice and board games. Sledding in the winter and mud bogging in the summer have always been some favorites. 
Mike's eldest daughter is Taylor, she is 16. Taylor loves to play basketball. Although Taylor has been facing some medical issues herself, she continues to persevere and do very well in school. Taylor wants to be a Sports Physiotherapist when she grows up.
The second born is Alexis, she's 14. Alexis was born with a clubbed foot and has had over 100 casts and 8 or 9 surgeries with the last one just this past November. She has never let her foot slow her down, Alexis is a fighter, just like her dad. Once Alexis' foot is fully healed she wants to get back to doing kickboxing and football. Alexis continues to do very well in school and wants to be an Ultrasound Technician when she grows up.
The 3rd born is Zachary, he is 13 and has his dad's sense of humour, they both enjoy practical jokes a lot. Zach plays basketball, football and of course, video games. Zach's favorite subject in school is PE and he wants to be a Carpenter like his dad when he grows up.  
These children are Mike's pride and joy, they are the reason he is going to give everything he has to fight this cancer.  
While Mike is still in the hospital, he is hoping to come home soon. The fight is going to be a long tough one, but with all of his family and friends by his side, he knows he's loved and that makes the struggle a little easier.
