A Tribute to Michael

"Michael touched so many people with his kindness, unselfishness, and unending faith. There were so many people who contacted me and said that they were praying for Michael. Many who said that they had never prayed before or had not for so long. Michael brought so many to God's door and opened it for them. His strength was the most remarkable thing to me. I saw Michael cry only twice throughout his illness. Once when I told him and only because I was crying and once when we were told after his first chemo treatment that the tumor was growing again."


"Today we will carry forward the memories gained from living with one of God's best people for 14 years. Today we will live with the support of hundreds of friends and family members who have carried us through all of this. Today we will love one another more because Michael brought us so together. Today we go forward with the knowledge that Michael is in heaven with our God and Jesus is providing him with comfort. Because today is the day the Lord has made and in spite of our heavy hearts, we are armed with the many blessings from our son Michael and it is in those blessings that we will rejoice and be glad."

Spotlight on a Friend

  We want to introduce you to Jazmin, one of Michael's babies. The Friends4Michael Foundation recently helped Jazmin and her family through their difficult journey. Jazmin is 5 and such a beautiful and happy baby. When she was only 2, she was diagnosed with a medullablastoma and the surgeons found tumors all up and down her spine. Fortunately, though skilled surgeons, successful (though difficult) treatments and God's hand, Jazmin is now cancer-free, loving lfe and back to school - and her parents are starting to get back on their feet! These are the babies that we help in our Foundation - this is the difference that YOU are making with your donations and support. Please read more about Jazmin on our Facebook site!
