It is with a saddened heart that I share the story of Michael Scott. Mike, who is in his 30's, is a loving father to his two beautiful children ages 3 & 6 and husband to the love of his life, Mary-Jane. In addition, he is the offensive line and strength football coach at Milton High School. The Scott family resides in Canton.
Mike, who has been in and out of the hospital a lot recently, was just diagnosed with Stage IV Adenocarcinoma Cancer and is given very limited time to live (possibly days-weeks). This all happened quite suddenly! As you can imagine, the family is drowning in just everyday living expenses as well as medical costs on top of trying to deal emotionally with this devastation.
In light of cancer awareness this month, I am reaching out to our community, in an effort to hopefully raise awareness and funds for this struggling family.
There has been a Facebook page set up for updates from and support to the Scott Family:
'Prayers for Michael Scott' Facebook page http://www.facebook.com/PrayersForMichaelScott
In addition, a donation site has been set up for anyone wishing to donate monetarily to the Scott Family.
"Give Forward" http://www.giveforward.com/miracleformike
Currently, we are in the planning stages for a Family Fun Day Fundraising event. We have had many companies donate their services as well as numerous items for our raffle/auction. If you or anyone you know would be willing and able to donate anything for an auction/raffle or if you have a service that would fit into the Family Fun Day Event in honor of The Scott Family, please contact Amie directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Milton High School Football team is also selling "Lift up Coach Scott" wristbands at the school for $5 where all proceeds go to the Scott Family.
