Meal Train Plus for

Lecik Family

About this Meal Train

As many of you may know, Mike was recently diagnosed with late stage Multiple Myeloma. M M is a rare, incurable blood cancer of the plasma cells, a type of white blood cell which originates in the bone marrow. Plasma cells produce antibodies that help fight infection. Cancerous plasma cells are known as multiple myeloma cells. They create abnormal antibodies, called M proteins, which offer no benefit to the body. As multiple myeloma cells multiply they crowd out normal plasma cells, which can lead to a number of signs and symptoms. In Mike’s case, he has been anemic for a while but the true sign/symptom was his broken ribs. He first broke 2 ribs on Dec 23, 2018. By end of January his broken rib count was up to 4 total and he was starting to feel excruciating pain in other areas. He started seeking additional answers without a lot of success but his primary doctor at the VA hospital picked up on some markers in his blood after a routine set of labs and sent him straight from work to the ER on February 22. It was there that they did more testing for specific proteins in his blood that would lead him to a diagnosis on March 12, 2019. He has since had a bone biopsy for official confirmation, a blood transfusion, a PETSCAN, countless sets of labs drawn, a bone injection which will occur monthly and his first round of chemotherapy. His PETSCAN confirmed tumors in all ribs, his pelvis, left femur, both hips and lower vertebrae. He is in constant pain. Mike’s treatment plan includes: Chemotherapy, radiation therapy, a monthly bone strengthening injection, oral chemo pills, steroids and pain meds to help keep him comfortable. His Myeloma is aggressive with over 92% of his bone marrow crowded with cancerous cells at the present time. The goal is to reduce the cancer as low as possible over the next 80 days in order to move onto step 2 of treatment. He will require a bone marrow transplant (using his own healthy bone marrow through stem cell) sometime this summer as long as his other treatments go according to the plan. That will be done in Nashville, TN and will require him to stay there for aprx 3 weeks. Anyone who has faced a cancer diagnosis whether it be a family member, friend, co-worker, child or self, knows that it is one of the single most unnerving things you will ever go through. It’s a lot of hurry up and wait and a lot of facing the unknown. We are in it. We do have a lot to be thankful for though. We have an enormous support system who have already been so kind and generous with their time, their offerings, calls, texts and just overall care for Mike, me and our girls. We appreciate every single one of you. We will do our best to keep everyone up to date with his treatment plan and progress. Until then, keep those supportive and encouraging words coming... they help and keep Mike on your prayer list... prayer helps. All of you that know Mike know that he is a feisty, strong-willed man with a lot of great things left to accomplish. We feel confident that with great doctors, great friends and family and the right treatment he will fight through this and come out stronger than before. Thank you again for each of you who care about Mike and our family. It means so very much!

Love the idea of the "clothing sale" donation fundraiser, but not my style ... so, I'll "contribute direct" - hope that's okay. Love you all. <3
