Help with Michael's fight
In May of 2018 Michael began having problems with his smile, his hands, balance and memory. Michael had a syncopal episode that took him to the ER where a golf ball sized tumor was found. After being transferred to multiple facilities he has landed up at St. Jude's! After biopsies in June Dr believed that he had multiple spots in the pons that weren't any worry and a low grade tumor in the right cerebellum.
