Mike Ozruh Kicks Cancer Benefit22Apr 2014- 7:30pm -
On February 22nd at 7:30pm, we open to the public in order to help a truly good person along their battle with cancer. We will be holding a silent auction to help pay for the exceedingly high medical bills as well as holding live music in the back bar from various different bands who have donated their time. Please come and help a new father, a husband, and a friend in his battle against impossible odds. If you would like to donate but can’t make it to the event, follow this link (any amount is appreciated): https://fundly.com/ozruh-kicks-cancer
Mike’s Story in his words:
I’m a 30 year old male who found the love of his life 3 years ago. I married her a year and a half ago, and we started a family together. Our first child, Evren Michael, is 3 months old and is my biggest motivating factor throughout this. I’ve never even taken 1 drag of a cigarette, never touched tobacco chew, and have been fairly healthy over the past 4 years. Finding out about this news didn’t seem fair, but there are a lot of other people that life isn’t that fair to.
On February 13th 2014 I found out that I had gastroesophageal cancer, and on the 21st I was told that it was stage IV, that it was incurable, that it was only treatable, that I had months to live if I didn’t receive chemo, and that the oncologist was hopeful to see me coming back in 2 years if I was receiving treatment.
My reaction to the news so far has befuddled even myself. I wish it wasn’t the case, but it is, and I’m strangely comfortable with it. Don’t mistake being comfortable with being happy, that is not the case. I’m comfortable because I feel that I’ve already had an amazing and wonderful life, I understand that no one lives forever, and although I do dearly want to see my Son grow up and to grow old with my wife, I am grateful to have such a healthy, adorable Son and to have such an amazing, strong, loving, and wonderful Wife. I’m comfortable because I know I’m leaving something behind for whenever that day comes.
For now though, I fight, I battle, and I yearn to win. The statistics are catastrophically against me, but that’s always been the way I’ve liked it. If something’s too easy, it’s not worth being good at. Now I have my ultimate test, and by utilizing the power of my friends, my family, God, and myself, I will fight for every year, every month, every day, and every minute. In the end, materials are meaningless, but the relationships we have, the people we know, and the love and happiness we leave behind are eternal. I treasure every relationship, whether close or distant, even more than ever at this point, and I truly hope that anyone reading this story is inspired to treasure those around them and attempt to maximize the time they have with them.
