Mike was diagnosed with the blood cancer in May of 2016, though the symptoms had begun back in January.
Over the past year plus, he has undergone multiple rounds of chemotherapy. Twice he was thought to be in remission, only to have it show up somewhere else in his body. The hope is to get him back to remission, where they can perform a Bone Marrow Transplant. It was discovered that one of his brothers is a perfect match as a donor. Mike will travel to the Mayo Clinic in Rochester for an initial testing appointment Sunday June 25th.
Mike has received outstanding support from family and friends during this time. His wife Carol especially, has been by his side every step of this process. Mike thanks all of you for this. We continue to ask that you keep him in your thoughts and prayers.
