On December 14th 2012, with only a mere few weeks of symptoms, Michael Yuen was diagnosed with stage IV Colon Cancer – inoperable. An immediate aggressive chemotherapy regimen was planned; however, because the cancer was so advanced, during Mike’s attempt at treatment, he has experienced many setbacks and complications. Mike has been hospitalized numerous times in the past 3 months, and he has undergone many procedures with the intention to carry on with the chemotherapy. Despite sincere effort, the cancer is showing no mercy and has spread to all of his surrounding organs. Presently, Mike’s pain is nearly unmanageable and he has experienced rapid unprecedented weight loss.
Shortly after Mike’s diagnosis, parents from his son’s high school hockey team (Michael Jr. is a senior on the hockey team) reached out to the Yuen family with the proposal of having a benefit. After all of Mike’s years of devoting 110% of himself, at this time, please help us give back to Mike as he continues fighting every day for his life. Help us do what we can and relieve him/his family of the financial burden that this terminal illness has bestowed upon them.
