Mike's Fight Against Brain Cancer
I am writing this with a very heavy and aching heart but Mike recently received news that his brain cancer is back and has spread. Unfortunately at this time his brain tumor is inoperable. Mike met with his Oncologist and they have decided to have him do two cycles of chemotherapy (Roughly two months). If they see that there are positive improvements, then he will do another six rounds of chemo. If there is no change then they will have to reevaluate and go from there. In the mean time, Trish Tepidino continues to do everything in her power to find a clinical trial that he may qualify for.
Mike continues to amaze us with his positive outlook on life and how he lives each day to its fullest. He is by far the strongest person that I have ever met! Mike is gearing up for another long and difficult road to recovery. He has recently missed some work due to his increased symptoms because of this we are asking for assistance with medical costs and possible traveling expenses (clinical trials).
Mike and his family will be forever grateful for any help big or small. Please keep this amazing young man in your thoughts and prayers!
