Michael Brown was initially diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer in February 2010. He went through six months of chemotherapy with his wife and infant son by his side. Michael had been in remission for almost 4 years. Then in December of 2013, he was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer. The type of cancer Michael had is called Signet Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma. It is a rare and aggressive type of cancer that affects less than 1% of all Colon Cancer patients. Because of its rarity, this type of cancer is not researched as much as the more common forms of Colon Cancer.
It has been seven years since we started this journey and already with your support, our foundation has given over $250K toward colon cancer research.
Michael had a heart for running, so to meet the goals of the foundation, a 5K run was established, the “Michael’s 5K Run For Life.” A large number of people can solve the most difficult problems in life if they band together. Join us in July and help kick signet ring colon cancer in the butt! Mark your calendars for this year because it will be coming up on JULY 25th, 2020 at 6pm.
