In 2015, we found out that my wife, Michelle Sims Davis, had lung cancer. At that time, we went through the surgery because the cancer was behind her breastplate at that time. So we went through the surgery to have it removed. Afterward, we were told that everything looked good and was healing up so we went on with our plans to marry in September 2016 .
One week after we were married, we were told to come back to the doctor and were told that chemo had to start immediately because more cancer was found. This time the cancer was located in her neck and her lung. So after this round of chemo, we were told we got rid of the cancer.
Four weeks after the chemo treatment was finished, we were called back to the hospital again. The cancer had returned. It was on her brain and she had to start radiation immediately. After radiation, the cancer shrunk tremendously but had spread through to the fluid in her brain and her spine. The doctors at The James Cancer Hospital said there was nothing else that they could do for her.
Michelle fought the good fight but in the end, the cancer was too much for her body to take. Early Friday morning, January 12, 2018, we were all by her side as she took her last breath and went home to be with the Lord.
Michelle was a great wife, mother, nurse, friend, daughter, aunt, cousin, and human being. We will all miss her dearly. We know many of you know and love us. We appreciate all of your prayers and support.
Please help us give my wife a good homegoing service by donating towards her funeral expenses. No donation is too small. Thank you very much again for all of your support and prayers. Love, Tim.
Rejoice in heaven, Michelle! We're gonna miss you.
