Please help the family and friends of Mike Pittman raise money to pay medical expenses. Thank you for your support and generosity!

Diagnosed with Squamous cell carcinoma of the esophagus in Oct 2011 Mike has been fighting this cancer with chemo to shrink a tumor so he could undergo surgery and remove it. After months of chemo he was told he no longer had the tumor and surgery would not be needed. Great news one would think! But not so fast.. further testing showed the cancer had spread to his bones along with a suspicious spot in the brain.

This news was devastating for Mike and his family. Mike and Judy just celebrated 39 years of marriage January and they have one daughter Michelle who is and will always be her daddy’s little girl. Michelle has given them two beautiful grandchildren Levi 18 and Jaisa 13. They have all pulled together to get through this very difficult time. Michelle moved back home to help care for Mike and be supportive as best she can. Judy works 15 hour days at her job and longs to spend time with Mike. They are coping with Mike’s illness as best they can, they are struggling with the financial hardship of medical bills and Mike’s loss of income. But the bills keep coming in, they have been humbled by this disease and all the pain it has brought to their family. They have never asked anyone for help before.

They need our help now so please find it in your heart to help them with a donation of any amount, your contribution will be greatly appreciated.
Mike would be grateful as he told me "the last thing I want to do is leave my family with a mountain of medical debt"

On April 30, 2012 at 3:11PM Mikey passed to the heavens. He was at home and surrounded by his loving family.
