Welcome to Michael's CaringBridge site. We've created it to keep friends and family updated.
Michael was diagnosed with Stage 4 Larynx Cancer in early July. The tumor in his throat will be removed through surgery, including his lymph nodes and any other surrounding affected areas. This will leave him without his voice box, but we all know that won't keep him from making his wisecracks. We'll know more about the treatment and recovery plan soon and will post updates here regularly.
Thank you for all your prayers and well wishes. Michael will no doubt be on Facebook and on here reading all of your messages, so feel free to keep them coming! We know he is strong and stubborn, and together, with your help, he can fight this!
Please note that "Tribute" donations made through this site go directly to CaringBridge for operating this free service. If you are interested in giving directly to Mike, we have set up a GoFundMe page to help raise funds for special communication equipment he will need. https://www.gofundme.com/michaelernest
