My husband and ‘Bestest Bud” Mike Carter was diagnosed over a year ago on August 28, 2017 and is now batting Stage 4 Colon Cancer.  As Vic, Mike’s wife and best friend, writes now he is back in the hospital, with fever and chills.

Carter supported me and lifted me up every day white I went through terrifying Cervical Cancer. He never left my side and he never gave in to believing, even for a second, that I wouldn’t get better.  He was my rock.  After batting for almost a year and hospital stays for infections and related witnesses, I was finally regaining my strength.

I’ve lost count of the number of times he’s been admitted during this past year, but it’s around a dozen. Most visits last for 5 – 10 days.  He has batted and overcome multiple surgeries, over 24 Chemo treatments, 5 radiation treatments, fatigue, multiple related sicknesses, numbness in his hands and feet, and the total toss of taste. He is a fighter so I believe he will putt through this battle and we will our lives out together as we have always planned. But we are in serious need of prayer and support as we continue to fight this horrible cancer.

The reality is that this evil disease is ravaging my husband’s body and my soul. He is a rock, and he has never once complained about the process his body is going through. He is unwavering in his faith and in his belief that we will live out our years together and he will beat this horrible condition.
