Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement. Thank you for visiting.
Mickey went into the doctor's office on Friday, Sept. 29, 2017 as he was not feeling well. They discovered that his kidneys were not functioning correctly, so they did a CT Scan. That CT scan revealed Cancer...and a lot of it. They believe it to have started in the Colon with mets to his abdomen, intestines, and lymph nodes. They told him at that time, his cancer was terminal. They were able to rehydrate him, as that is what caused his kidneys to begin to shut down, not the cancer.
Due to the extensiveness of the cancer, there are no curative treatment options. Mickey started hospice on Oct. 3, 2017. He is taking this time to be with his family, and to enjoy each of the days that God is blessing him with.
We encourage you to please leave a message, as he loves to hear from people! If you have a joke, he would appreciate that too! Thank you for all your love, prayers, words of encouragement, strength and hope!! Our family is grateful to so many of our extended family and friends for helping us through this time! Blessings
