As many of you know, Mike was diagnosed with a brain tumor in Fall of 2013 after having an episode of loosing consciousness at work. He had partial resection of the tumor in November 2013, and the biopsy showed it was a grade II astrocytoma. Which means it was a slow growing brain tumor. He also completed a round of radiation and oral chemo in 2015. We have been watching the area of remaining tumor with MRI over time and he has had little to no tumor growth. He has functioned at basically full capacity until last week. Please see the updates section to see what is going on with Mike now.
