As most of you know, Mike was diagnosed with Nasopharyngeal (nay-zoh-fuh-RIN-jee-ul) carcinoma in November 2018. This is a cancer that occurs in the nasopharynx, which is located behind your nose and above the back of your throat. Nasopharyngeal carcinoma is rare in the United States and only 3 other cases have been reported to date. Mike is in stage 4 of this cancer and was given a life expectancy of 3 months. He is currently at home with his wife, Becky Sather, resting and trying to stay comfortable. Hospice care is coming into the home to help and he is spending his remaining time enjoying friends and family. I would invite all of you to share a story you remember about Mike so he can read and hear from those who may not have the opportunity to visit him. We will update this site as new information is available.
