Mike and Susan's life changed suddenly on October 30th of this year when, after experiencing a bad headache for a week, he wound up in the ICU. CT scans revealed bleeding on the brain which doctors attributed to a blow to the head Mike may have had a couple weeks prior while jumping into his boat. He received a diagnosis of a severe concussion and was sent home.

 

Over the course of the next 2 weeks, he lost almost 15 pounds as symptoms worsened, and on Nov 11, he was back in the ICU. At this time, tests revealed Stage 4 mestatic melanoma with double bleeding in the brain, and tumors in the brain, lung and kidney. An aggressive treatment plan involving radiation and chemotherapy were to commence soon thereafter. On 12-2, Mike's 56th birthday, he started radiation treatments which ended on 12-20. Oral chemotherapy began in December which he will be on through January. Subsequent tests and scans will determine results of his current treatments, and help doctors work out future plans for Mike.

 

Mike was born in Alabama in 1960, served our country in the US Air Force for 6 years, and met the love of his life, Susan, in San Antonio whom he's been married to for 27 years. They have 3 children, Sarah, Abby and Noah, and 2 grandchildren, Kellen and Nate. They attend church at North Cities UPC, where they've been members since 2001. Anyone that knows Mike well, knows that he loves the Lord, his family and his friends. He also loves the outdoors, and is an avid fisherman. Over the years he's led countless fishing guide trips yielding great results for happy clients and friends.

 

Mike has been unable to work or get out and do much of anything since October. He is a seasoned mortgage loan officer, and has been with his current employer a little less than a year. Because of his reduced work hours and length of service at his company, his benefits and monthly income are reduced drastically. Susan is gainfully employed at Capital One for 10 years, where they carry their medical insurance. Even though they have this insurance; medical bills, co-pays for doctors, medications and treatments are mounting quickly in addition to their normal financial responsibilities.

 

They live in McKinney in a beautiful 2 story home, but unfortunately, due to their circumstances, they will have to put it on the market to sell with plans to move to a nearby apartment where they can remain close to Mike's doctors. This family needs your prayers and support. Financial assistance, in any amount, to help them with expenses, medical bills and treatments, co-pays and other responsibilities will be helpful and greatly appreciated.
