winter of 2001 he was diagnosed with Head/Neck cancer.
The survival statistics on this type of cancer aren't the best but there are those that have beat the beast. Mike fought a good battle for almost three years. He worked right up until the end. He maintained an amazing positive attitude. In fact we went on his first, last and only long distance motorcycle ride less than 6 months before he passed...and he was eating via a feeding tube.
My friend Karen is honoring her husband's ten year survival of Head/Neck cancer by holding a ten week auction with all the proceeds going to The Oral Cancer Foundation. The items up for auction are listed here.
I hope you will take a look, maybe bid and then send the link on to all your family and friends. Head/Neck cancer is a silent killer that no one seems ready to talk about. Let's change that!
Michael, you are missed by all your family and friends. We love you and you will always be in our hearts!
