Michael’s Story

Site created on September 25, 2015

I found out on Sept. 24, 2015 that I have a brain tumor. I had surgery the next week, and started radiation and chemo shortly after that. It is an aggressive kind of cancer called Glioblastoma, that requires ongoing treatment. We've created this site to keep friends and family updated. We set up another web page for people who would to give money to help pay the medical bills and also support our work and healing: https://www.gofundme.com/healing-for-michael-and-family (https://www.gofundme.com/healing-for-michael-and-family.   We) . We appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement during this time when it matters most. Thank you!!

Journal entry by Michael Bischoff

Adding on to the Beatles, I've got to admit it's getting better...

When my nurse last night helped me convince the doctor I didn't need to be on IV fluids all night long
and I slept most of the night
When I enjoyed a veggie omelet this morning, unlike the evening before, when I threw up just looking at the menu
When the steroids helped calm my headache and nausea
When I came home and went to the neighborhood eagle's nest and watched the parents feed their two new babies
When Jenny married me 20 years ago, and continues to inundate me with such unconditional care

It feels miraculous to be home and feeling good. Amen.
