Hello Friends, I am writing this on behalf of my father- Michael Dean aka "big Daddy". It was just 2 weeks ago when I got the call.. "your dad has cancer". On June 18, he was diagnosed with Adenocarcinoma. That's a fancy word for cancer in the stomach region. I will spare you all the details that happened between now and then. He's resting comfortably at my home in Apex. Anyone that knows my father, knows that he's a fighter. He's feisty and has a great sense of humor. He is in good spirits and getting caught up on every movie I can find. We are going to Duke on Monday to see an oncologist there to pursue a clinical trial. He tested positive for a PDL-1 marker, so he should be a good candidate for immunotherapy in addition to standard Chemotherapy. Please continue to pray for him and my whole family. Also, my dad would love to hear from you. Please post thoughts prayers and well wishes on this page. Thank you so much for your prayers! Kelly Chadwick Shiley
