Dear Friends and Neighbors:

This site is a tribute to my brother-in-law, Michael Chomik, who has battled with pancreatic cancer since he was first diagnosed in the spring of 2011, shortly after the birth of his first grandchild. Michael, a true Spartan in his quest to find the newest cancer treatments, did not reach this point in time without a fight! The cancer, now in Stage 4, has left him tired and grappling with the end stages of what was a very meaningful life. Michael has been a provider for his family, and a great husband and father, a church community member, and a fine friend to many people. His outlook on life, his character and spirit have helped him see the birth of his second grandchild, Mikayla, born in October of this year.

My hope is that visitors to this site will be moved to sponsorship, knowing that they will have supported Michael in his ongoing fight with one of the most aggressive, silent, and unforgiving cancers that claims and robs people of their life, families and dreams.

Thank you Michael for being the best brother-in-law ever!
