He found out 3 days after is 62nd Birthday and 41 days after our mother’s passing he has Stage 3 Pancreatic cancer.
Mike has 3 children Mike Snider Jr. Residing in Colorado, Tanner Jerles residing in Florida and Abby that still resides with Mike and his wife Linda.
He will begin Chemotherapy on August 20 th it will continue approximately 3 months. With the hopes of shrinking the tumor that has been confirmed. Eventually going through an evasive surgery to remove the tumor and anything remaining.
With his career as a lineman working has become difficult and with chemotherapy traveling from home is it possible to continue to work. Unfortunately his health insurance premiums will still need to be paid out of pocket along with any copayments and prescriptions. With the flexibility of Linda’s job she’ll be able to be mobile working while keeping the schedule of doctors appointments ,chemotherapy, bloodwork and etc. but her income alone will not cover the monthly expenses.
