Welcome to Mike’s 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. Mike’s health crisis began about 3 weeks prior to his diagnostic tests on March 19th. On Monday, March 22, we heard the diagnosis no one fully expected: Mike has Stage 4 inoperable metastatic pancreatic cancer, and he is now undergoing chemotherapy and bravely taking on this challenging battle. Visits with and calls to everyone to keep them “in the loop” on Mike’s condition are too many to manage, and sap the energy he is rallying for this battle; therefore, we have created this site for us to post updates.
