Cancer Strikes Leech family

Doctors at Petoskey hospital have told us as of August 15th, 2014 that Mikey has been listed as terminal. We have been told that he he can have as little as two weeks if he succumb to his latest infection, or could survive up to one year.  
Our family is being torn apart from this rare horrific form of cancer called Sarcomatoid Carcinoma. Michael is of the lung region and it's correct medical termonology is "Sarcomatoid carcinoma of the lung"  (SCL).
As a group, SCL prognosis is considered to be worse than that of most types of NSCLC.  This is because SCL are considered particularly aggressive in non-small cell lung cancers. This cancer form is the same that took the life of Michael's mother in breast cancer form, and attacked Micheal's Uncle Mark's eye sight.

Michael is married to Amanda Leech and they have three boys, Aaron 13, Kaleb 11, and Anthony who is 10. They are pictured in the photo I have shared with you. The family live in a remote northern town of Petoskey, Michigan.  For more than three years Mandy has been working three minimum wage jobs to support the family, due to Michael's worsening health.  Michael loves to cook and had been working on Michigan's Makinaw Island as a lead cook until physically he could no longer endure the pain.
We are asking for your help in assisting the family with medical and living costs and more importantly to keep Michael comfortable through this horrific disease. 

Please donate whatever you can even $1 to help ease this tremendouse financial burden.  Please also keep the family in your thoughts and prayers...

Thank you for your support!!
From, Staci, Tony, and Nikki.
