In Memory Of
Puck Cancer INC. was founded in memory of Michelle Alberola Myers. Michelle was diagnosed with cancer in 2009. Overwhelmed and surprised by the sudden diagnosis, the family feared the worst. Michelle, though, was a go gettet, and was determined to beat the disease in every way possible. Despite being given a mere 3-6 months to live, Michelle’s cancer was in remission nearly one year to the day after her diagnosis. A short while later, though, the cancer came back, spreading relentlessly to Michelle’s spine and brain, and on January 21ST, 2011, Michelle passed away surrounded by her family.
Michelle’s fight, determination, and strength inspired her son, Shawn, in countless ways. He witnessed, firsthand, the struggle his mother went through in order to pay for treatment, and he was determined to help prevent that same financial struggle in others.
The Medical Oncology Associates allowed Michelle to focus on healing, rather than money, and so Shawn was determined to do the same for as many people as he could.
