As you know, our beloved Michael was diagnosed with metastatic cancer in May of 2015. Since that time, we have had multiple consults with several hospitals that specialize in cancer, including Dana Faber and have tried several treatment protocols. Since mid December, our treatment options have diminished and we are currently focusing on palliative care. We continue to be grateful for all of the love and support we have received from friends and family. We are engaging with this site in order to communicate with the people we love in a manner that does not rely on our ability to respond in a timely manner to phone calls and e-mails.
Michael does have a special request which is rather than posting on the thoughts and well wishes page, he would much prefer that you send him a private message to his e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org
Jackie, on the other hand, is happy to read any messages you wish to leave!
