Welcome to our CaringBridge website. We are using it to keep family and friends updated in one place. We appreciate your support, prayers, and words of hope and encouragement. Uncle Mike and Aunt Carolyn’s unwavering faith in God and hope in their Savior, Jesus, has carried them and continues to carry them through this journey. Thank you for visiting.
Uncle Mike was diagnosed with stage four Cholangio Carcinoma in October of 2021. It metastasized in his liver, stomach, abdomen and brain. They initially gave him a grim prognosis of 6-12 months.
Chemo began, but it was abruptly halted after around 22 tumors were found in his brain. The body can only handle doing either chemo or radiation, therefore WBRT (Whole Brain Radiation Treatment) had to begin imminently to hopefully get the brain tumors under control.
We will continue to keep our friends and family updated as his journey continues.
