There are many different types of cancer. Let’s make them all history!

Cancer is a horrible disease. You know how hard it is for adults to fight back against Breast Cancer, Lung Cancer, Colon Cancer, or Prostate Cancer.

Now imagine fighting for your life as a child with Leukemia or Lymphoma.

All types of cancer are devastating. All of them possibly deadly.

In my case, it was throat cancer. An HPV Basil tumor on the base of my tongue. If I had waited two more months before treatment, the tumor would have grown across my windpipe and I would be dead today. I am now a cancer survivor and a living example of why you need to go get checked. Period.

My name is Mike Coy. Before my father passed away, he said; “Make a Difference Son”. That’s what I strive to do each and every single day of my life! It is now my mission to raise awareness for cancer prevention, the need for early detection, and to raise funds for cancer research. I have created this website specifically for this purpose. I am raising funds for childhood cancer research. I want to help our doctors and researchers find a cure for juvenile cancer in my lifetime.

I hope that I can encourage others to take their health seriously and to get checked before it’s too late. Especially men! With men, the two most prominent types of cancer are Colon and Prostate. The two simplest cancers to treat IF caught in time. However, statistics prove men don’t go to the doctor and don’t get checked. That’s why our death rate is 58% higher than women’s. When we finally make it to the doctor, we are usually in Stage 4. There are so many things we can do to improve our chances. Just ask me, I know!

Life is About Choices. I Chose … Live

You have a choice in your cancer journey. “Either get busy living…or get busy dying”. A quote from the movie Shawshank Redemption that got me out of my “feeling sorry for myself” state of mind. I Chose … Live. I assure you, for someone that was never sick a day in his life, this “wake-up” call has changed my life. Learn how I applied the winning strategies from my sports career to my challenge of fighting cancer. I pray these lessons learned will help you, or your loved one, win the fight too.

I hope you value your life and the people in it enough to get checked regularly and remain healthy. Stop to embrace this opportunity we call life. Remember to thank the loved ones who get you through the tough times. Enjoy the good times. Remember that, even if you have cancer, cancer doesn’t have you. And, when life throws you a curve­ball, my prayer is that you’ll knock it out of the park and proudly proclaim, “I Chose … Live.”

I invite you to learn more about my journey with cancer.
