LoriDarlin Posted December 11, 2009 Share Posted December 11, 2009 I have some bad news to share with you all. Not sure who all has heard what is going on with our caching friend River Cacher aka Mike Davis but he has been recently diagnosed with Stage 3 Lung Cancer. He was admitted into the hospital this past weekend for many tests and got started on radiation. Mike just got released from the hospital and is in the process of moving into a motel right by the hospital for treatments 5 days a week while he fights the cancer. His chemo will start immediately after getting one more scan done this coming week. The plan is to use both chemo and radiation at the same time to reduce the large tumor that has developed. Once it has shrunk the doctors will remove it surgically. He has a tough road ahead of him but is starting out with a good strong fighting attitude. We ask that you keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers to help him and them fight this. There is a small group of people circling together to find ways to help Mike and his family out at this time of need. We have many ideas and wanted to share a few of them in this post. We have started a few charity auctions on ebay for Mike's behalf and will continue to post them as time goes by in this thread. If you have the inclination and desire to help please bid them up. The first few ones will be donated by some of our inner circle and if anyone else would like to send coins to us in his behalf they are welcome. Actually what would help even more is if you did your own ebay auction and then sent the proceeds to Mike directly when its done...that would be great. However, we realize that not everyone has an ebay or paypal account to list their own coins so we can help you Again all will be posted here. Here are the first two listed & I will post more as more comes in: BIRKA GOLD GEOCOIN NEPTUNE COMPASS DEEP SEA GEOCOIN Additionally, we have decided to start a holiday basket for Mike's girls for (River Princess, River Tinkerbell, River Dancer). If you want to send something to them in time for Christmas that would be much appreciated since this will be a hard Christmas for them not being able to stay at their normal home and in a motel near the hospital instead. Please send your gifts to my address (email me if you need it) and I will gather all the gifts until a time frame right before Christmas when the others in our small group can accompany me to go visit with Mike and his girls and share the gift of Christmas and friendship. THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR HELP....in any type of form be it prayers, good wishes, buying an auction, selling your own....everything will help our friend in his time of need. Quote Link to comment
