The family and friends of Michael Northedge are uniting to raise money to help with his medical supplies and yet another surgery.

Michael Northedge has always provided for his family and friends as far back as his early teens. While growing up he spent many summers in West Virginia visiting family. MIke's sister lives Charleston, WVA and he has many cousins in the Charleston, Nitro and surrounding areas. When Mike's employer transferred him away from his extended family, sadly, it left many miles between us. Going through something like this without family close by is most difficult.

Michael is 6'3" and went from a healthy 200 lbs. to a frightening 155 lbs. in a matter of weeks, in the Fall of 2010.

On September 24th, 2010, he could go no further. The effects of colon cancer left him unable to sleep, in constant pain, weakened and ultimately landed him in the emergency room. He was admitted after a 'fist-sized' mass was found. The following day he was diagnosed with Stage 3 Colon Cancer. After 2 surgeries and 6 weeks in the hospital, he finally came home, only to find out his employer had terminated him leaving us with no income, as I am disabled and unable to work.

We felt we had to get something started to alleviate the stress on Michael so that he can focus all of his energy and strength on his recovery. The money donated will be used to pay for medical expenses, medical colostomy supplies and one more, much needed reversal surgery. Please keep Michael in your prayers. He needs all your support and prayers to help stay strong through this difficult time.

If you prefer to mail a check, you can send it to:
Michael Northedge,
3687 Claypond Road, Apt. A
Myrtle Beach SC 29579.
