On November 20th, 2019 Michael was found laying on the floor, unable to move, see, and slurring his speech. Scans showed a mass larger than a golf ball on the right side of Michaels brain causing massive amounts of bleeding and swelling and needing emergency surgery.
At 33 years old Michael underwent his second surgery to remove a second mass related to his renal cancer he was diagnosed with years ago in his 20s which removed a softball sized mass and his right kidney. Years of experimental treatment has been able to maintain smaller masses in his lungs from spreading however cancer has yet again made its vigorous attack now on Michael’s brain.
Surgery has successfully removed the cancer in Michael’s brain but the damage caused and the road ahead is not over with many more months in the hospital, rehab, and the existing battle to fight cancer.
All support will help Michael with daily life challenges and future recovery.
