Michael has just been diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.  He is a strong man of faith that is only 35 years old with 4 young and beautiful kids.  A man I have known for over 15 years is now faced with the battle of his life. 

The fight has just started and a lot of people have already stepped up and helped.  He is back home after his visit to MD Anderson with a plan.  Step one was surgery to prep him for treatment.  Step two is Chemo which starts May 2nd.

Michael has a simple job right now, fight the effects of the chemo so he can go another round.  He will be missing work doing treatment and that is why we are reaching out.  Donations are not the only thing we need.  He could also use some advice from a nutritionist.  He is in the process of changing his diet but this will be a moving target that a nutritionist could help with.  Also, someone to help him exercise within his limits to keep him strong during the treatments.

Or maybe even stopping by his house and watching a sporting event or movie with him.  Pray with him, hug him and remind him he isn't alone.  

If you can help, please do as all help is appreciated.  Let's help Michael win this fight!

Thank you!

So the rollercoaster continues. Michael is back on the approved list for Chemo. I think they have spent half the time since the diagnoses on the phone with the insurance company. The first dose starts on Wednesday. I will do my best to post an update on how he is doing after the treatment.

If there is anything you would like to do for the family please let me know. With 4 young kids, their life is very hectic right now. Any kind of donation will be greatly appreciated.

Please feel free to reach out to me or Michael's wife for ways to help. As always, a cash donation will go a long way for them.

Thanks!

Also, their insurance is currently denying them the prescribed chemo. While they are still fighting this, at the moment the Chemo treatments will be out of pocket. We believe the first round of treatment will cost around 10k.
