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. Michael Faas was diagnosed with Multiple Myeloma Stage 3 in Feb 2013. Michael has been receiving chemotherapy for most of the the last 3 1/2 years. He has reached the final stage of his cancer and has been told that he has 2 to 6 months to live. While we still pray for a miracle, knowing that God can heal him, we also brace ourselves for a future without him. It breaks our hearts to even imagine living life without him here but we know that we must prepare ourselves for whatever is to come. Michael is the loving father of 3 young children: Isabella 14, Elizabeth 6, Malachi 3. Michael would like to leave a lasting legacy to his children and know that they are well taken care of for years to come. It is his hope that this go fund me account can be used to help support his family in his absence and provide for the needs that they may have. It's his hope that this account can be used to help provide for their driver's education, college education, weddings, and any milestones along the way. Michael has worked hard even through the cancer, pain, chemotherapy, radiation treatments, broken bones, and numerous tumors growing in his body to leave something behind for his children. This has been difficult as you can imagine, but as a self-employed man for most of the last decade he doesn't have social security to leave behind to them. There is also no life insurance policy to help alleviate the financial pressure that the family will face when losing Mike. Please continue to pray with us for a miracle. Mike is an amazing man and losing him would be a great loss to our whole family. And to anyone who has had the privilege of knowing him or being his friend.
We continue to be blessed by all your love, support, and prayers! Thank you for fighting with us in this journey against Mike's cancer. It's been a long hard road but with all of you we have some how managed to travel it with God's love and grace! Thank you! We could not have made it this far without your love and support and the faithfulness of God to help us endure the toughest, darkest moments! Thank you!
