Mike's Journey - Our Prime Years

Mike's Journey with Head/Neck Cancer

Mike, pre-cancer

These Head and Neck Cancer pages are a labor of love. Cancer first reared it's head (just the tip of the iceberg, so to speak) in January of 2001 when Michael, my husband of over fifteen years, noticed a lump on the left side of his neck. Below is a chronicle of our adventure.
