Support for Michael

Update: My brother is scheduled for his first chemotherapy treatment on Tuesday, September 5th at 9 am. We learned that he will need to fo through about 17 rounds of chemo. All the odd treatment numbers are a one day, outpatient treatment and all the even treatment numbers are a five day treatment that could be inpatient or outpatient. We recently moved my brother into a two bedroom apartment on the ground floor to make things easier for him. The second bedroom will be used my any family or friends that would like to stay with him. He has been approved to take two classes online, that will enable him to graduate in December with both degrees! He is extremely grateful for this, as those of you who know him knows he is dedicated to his studies. We want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers, and all of the support we have received. All of the medical bills will be coming in shortly and I know my mother has been amazed by the generosity of everyone. I will be posting updates here every so often to help keep everyone informed! 

We are trying to raise money for my brother, as he was just diagnosed with bone cancer. Michael is 21 years old and has been studying Accounting and Philosphy at The University of Texas in Austin, TX.  He will have to undergo about 9-12 months of aggressive chemotherapy and will most likely need to amputate his left foot. Funds raised will cover any and all ongoing medical bills. 

We appreciate everyone's thoughts & prayers as we kick this cancers butt!

In Michael's words: 

I wanted to reach out and let you all know that on Tuesday (08/22/2017) I was diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma, a cancer of the bone. I have been running tests and had a biopsy Thursday morning. The cancer originated in my foot and has since spread to my lungs. It seems to be very aggressive and I am starting chemo therapy in the next week or so. After some chemo I will also have surgery to amputate my foot and then continue with more chemo. I am overwhelmed but I am in good spirits. I appreciate any prayers, well wishes, and support for me and my family.

Love you all,
