Help Mike Pay for Cancer & MS Medical Care

Since December of 2017,  our friend Mike Philbrick has been examined and has received numerous MRI's, CT scans and tests to determine why he could no longer walk or keep his balance.  After waiting nine months in September 2018 Neurologists,  diagnosed Mike with Multiple Sclerosis. 

Neurologists determined that Mike has four leissons on his brain and several more leissons within his spine. These leissons are damaged nerve core endings that can not repair themselves or be repaired with surgery.  There is no known cure for MS. Mike will not be able to walk or balance without the use of a walker. He will also have to follow a strict medication plan with the hopes of preventing MS episodes or further physical impairment.

In December 2018 the Oncologist and Urologist said Mike required  surgery within his pelvic area to remove a rare malignant sarcoma cancer. The Oncologist set the surgery for January 2019. Unfortunately,  due to his financial hardship with mounting medical expenses Mike was unable to receive surgery. 

In February 2019 Mike received surgery at the University of Florida Health Hospital in Jacksonville. The Urologist removed his cancerous spermatic cord and a testicle.  After a period of recovery the Urologist requested a PET scan. More cancer cells were observed within his pelvic area. Mike's Urologist, Oncologist and Radiologist recommend radiation treatments.

On April 15th, Mike will begin radiation treatments five days per week for six weeks at University of Florida Health Hospital. The goal is to destroy the remaining cancer cells and to prevent this cancer from spreading to other areas within his body. As you know Mike is strong willed and determined to fight this cancer.

Mike has not been able to work due to his serious medical conditions. The length of time waiting for a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis and  a malignant sarcoma cancer surgery, has depleted his financial abilities.  Mike really needs our financial help if you can. Any financial amount will be very helpful. 

Why we need your help:

Mike has not been able to work due to his medical crisis and is out  of funds to pay for his cancer and MS care treatments, medical costs and expenses.  He needs our financial help if you can help him.  Any financial amount is sincerely helpful and appreciated. Mike's attitude is strong to get well again.

Before his medical lapse, Mike had a solid 20 year career employed within the executive protection and security management business. Mike also was the Director of Security at the Volusia Mall in Daytona Beach . Prior to these positions Mike served as a Police Officer for 13 years in both New Hampshire and Florida.

We  are coming here to ask for your financial help for our friend in need.  We are grateful for any financial amount you can give to help with his serious medical care costs. Let's help our friend Mike Get Well Again. Thank you all for your support for Mike.   Sincerely Yours Dana Pierce Mike's friend.
