Michael James Myers lost his battle with pancreatic cancer when he was just 47-years-old. He fought a good fight. After his diagnosis, Mike underwent a distal pancreatectomy and spleenectomy at Tampa General Hospital. He was told he was cancer free and did not even need chemotherapy treatment. Less than a month later, we found out his cancer had spread to his liver and other surrounding organs. Mike received numerous chemo treatments, none of which helped. Less than 7 months later, the Lord called him home.
