My Story

Mike was diagnosed with (ALL) in 2005 at 14 years old. He received aggressive Chemotherapy treatments until June 2008. We were all so happy to find out that he in remission. We had a huge celebration party as we thought this illness was a chapter that would be left behind and only new wonderful things would be in store for Mike. The following June, Mike graduated from high school and that September of 2009, Mike started college. He was planning on going into medicine. In March of 2010 Mike relapsed. He suffered and fought hard and did it with a smile. He was so gracious and brave, never complaining, instead he was thankful for everyday and lived each day to the fullest. On December 16, 2010 Mike's fight came to an end. He lost his fight to (ALL) and became the angel in heaven that he once was here on earth. Mike would have turned 21 years old this coming June. Mike was so smart, kind hearted, sensitive and he was loved by all. Mike loved the outdoors. His favorite outdoor sport was snowboarding. Fortunately Mike was well enough, in his Senior year of high school, to not only play football but to also be the captain of his team. He was a great captain and quite the role model. Mike's favorite place he had ever been to was HAWAII. He was looking forward to returnng there one day. Mike was shocked to learn of his illness as he always thought of himself as SUPERMAN. Mike will always be our SUPERMAN and our hero.
