About the Michael P. Brown Colon Cancer Foundation:
This event was created by Michael and his wife, Angie. Michael was initially diagnosed with stage 3 Colon Cancer in February 2010. He went through six months of chemotherapy with his wife and infant son by his side. Michael had been in remission for almost 4 years when in December 2013, he was diagnosed with stage 4 Colon Cancer. He underwent additional chemotherapy and extensive surgery to remove the cancer in April of 2014. Michael once again went into remission for almost 2 years when he had another recurrence. Michael had another extensive surgery in April of 2016 to remove more cancer. After an inspirational and incredible
fight, Michael passed in January of 2019. Michael had Signet Ring Cell Adenocarcinoma, a rare and aggressive type of cancer that affects less than 1% of all Colon Cancer patients. Because of its rarity, this type of cancer is not researched as much as the more common forms of Colon Cancer. All money raised for the foundation go directly to research and hopefully one day eradicate this type of colon cancer. The fight continues on, spearheaded by Angie, sons Jaxson and Karter as well as a group of close friends and relatives.
