I'm setting this up for my brother, Jeff Borck. Jeff has been battling with lung and brain cancer for almost 5 years, now. He always had a positive upbeat attitude during all his surgeries, radiation and chemo treatments. It was truly amazing! He was in remission this past spring and summer. By fall, another tumor developed in his esophagus, right where it splits off to the bronchial tubes. Because of thousands of fibrous blood vessels that lead to the heart, the tumor is inoperable. Despite having chemo treatment for 2 months, the tumor has grown and multiplied. We are asking for donations to help him with his final expenses, as well as prayers and support for strength and comfort, as he begins his journey Home. His wish is to be cremated and to purchase an urn bench to be placed where our parents are buried in Novi. Jeff and the Borck family send our sincere and loving thank you, in advance. Much love to all, for your support.

For those who don't have the info yet.
A memorial service for Jeff will be held at MacDonald's funeral home on Saturday, January 28th. Visitation will begin at 12:30pm with the service at 1:30pm. We are still looking into an urn bench to place near our parent's graves.
If there is anyone who would like to say something at the service, please let me know and I will let the pastor know. The outpouring of love, words of comfort, prayers and generosity of your donations has helped this whole transition go the way Jeff wanted. Words cannot express our appreciation. Love to all.

Sadly, Jeff lost his battle with cancer last night about 10:50pm. He left very peacefully. The way he fought and bounced back from all the previous surgeries, radiation and chemo treatments that he endured, still amazes me! I feel very lucky to have had these past 5 years with him. Yes, it's been almost, exactly, 5 years since his diagnosis. His positive, upbeat attitude gave him those years. However, all the previos tumors, radiation and chemo treatments, finally took a toll on his body. He just didn't have enough to fight this one off. He was a true soldier through it all and died with dignity! He is my new hero! I love you, Jeff, with all my heart. I'll miss you even more.

Jeff is declining rapidly. He still manages to get a joke in once in while. He seems comfortable and pain free. We may only have a couple more days with him. Please continue with your prayers for comfort and peace. Thank you for your love.

We would like to thank everyone for all your generous donations and prayers for comfort and support. Jeff is relieved that he can have his memorial service and cremation paid for. Details will be finalized tomorrow.
Jeff's past few days have been pretty rough. His breathing is very labored. He is currently on a nebulizer every 3 hours, as well as inhalers as needed and spiriva in the morning. He sleeps most of the time and his appetite is decreasing. He wants off the morphene pump, so they are going to let him try oral meds. He is able to swallow small or half pills and liquid meds.
Thank you for all your prayers and words of comfort. They are much needed and greatly appreciated. Much love to you.
