Michael’s Story
At the end of October, Michael and his family received the difficult news of a cancer diagnosis.  A tumor that started in the esophagus had spread to distant lymph nodes and the liver.   It is considered Stage 4.  Obviously, this news was met with shock and sadness.  Michael is determined to face this diagnosis head on and to fight with whatever tools the doctors think will be the most effective.

Michael and Katie  appreciate your support and words of hope and encouragement.  Feel free to leave comments and pictures. We will do our best to keep this site updated regularly as he goes through treatment.   Thank you for visiting.  Thank you for praying.  Thank you for supporting this beautiful family.

Journal entry by Suzanne Teson

Michael heard from his doctor today that radiation treatments will be starting on Friday.  It seems like a long time to wait, but it's on the calendar.  He'll be headed to KU Med for those treatments instead of the more local place where he was getting chemo.  We will update you if anything changes.  Bring on the new 'wrench'!  Michael can handle whatever they throw at him with courage and grace!

Praying that Friday comes quickly and that Michael will have a restful week.  God bless all of you for your prayers and love!
