 LONG BEACH, CA
If anyone knows Mike and Summer, they know they are the two most caring, selfless people around. Summer and Mike got married two years ago and just found out they are expecting their first child this October. 

Mike has been working at Northrop Grummon, but in his free time enjoys brewing his own craft beers, playing with their two dogs, and watching his favorite sports teams. Summer is a registered nurse in the NICU at Miller Children's Hospital. Together they enjoy having BBQs at their house for their friends and family, checking out local breweries, and traveling around the world. 
 
Mike was recently diagnosed with two cancerous brain masses and is ready to have the fight of his life. With the support of all their friends and family by their side, we are asking for any amount of help.

I apologize I haven't posted an update in awhile. Things have just been overwhelming and a little bit of a roller coaster lately. Thank you for your outpouring of support and love over the last few weeks. Michael's services were beautiful, thank you to those who attended and those who supported us from afar. The vigil, the funeral, and the reception to honor Michael were wonderful, heart warming, and everything he would have wanted in a celebration. It was incredible to see how many people attended the services, he was such a loved man. Thank you for the beautiful floral arrangements which brought so much beauty and joy to the services. We are so thankful for your generous donations to the Transitional Rehabilitation Services unit at Long Beach Memorial. We are so thankful for the stellar team who helped Michael in his day to day physical, occupational, and speech rehabilitation. Please continue to keep us in your prayers as we adjust to life without our husband, father, son, best friend, etc. Thank you... With love, Summer

With a heavy heart, I have some sad news. After a courageous 21 month battle with brain cancer, our warrior Michael Murray has peacefully passed away. On January 11, 2017, he took his last breath in the arms of his family. We are very thankful for the hospice team and caregivers who provided Michael with the medical care, support, and love to aide him through this final stage of his journey. Michael fought very hard up until the very end, up until his very last breath. What a brave and strong man he was. God truly has bigger and better plans for Michael, we just have to have trust in Him.

Thank you to everyone who has followed us on this journey. Your support, love, prayers, donations, meal deliveries, and dedication have tremendously helped us along the way. Please respect our need for privacy during these next few days, weeks, months ahead, as we navigate this life without our warrior. It's just so heartbreaking. Details on his funeral, burial, and celebration of life will be posted soon. With tears, Summer
