This is about my very VERY...BRAVE 15 year old son, MICHAEL KALISZ and his battle with melanoma skin cancer and losing his dad, his best friend during his battle. Michael's dad passed away, on Friday April 20th 2012 he passed in Michael's bedroom of a massive heart attack and it was Michael that found his dad's lifeless body. Through everything Michael has been though since November 22, 2011 this, my VERY brave teen my hero has maintained his grades and been on the Honor Roll all school year., He amazed all his teacher with keeping his grades up, with all Michael has gone though and all the school he missed due to his cancer and the 12 procedures to date and his dad's passing.

Michael's dad was the sole provider for our family. Michael's dad and I had no insurance when we got the news about Michael in November 2011 we did what we had to to make sure Michael got the treatment he so needed. We stopped paying our house payment, stopped paying on our term life policies, we cashed in Michael's pre-paid Florida College Fund, we sold off both our wedding rings and anything we had of valve for our Michael. We let all our bills go into default. In early 2012 Michael got insurance but it didn’t pay for everything Michael needed even with the Dr.s trying to help us get different things covered, the insurance company wouldn’t cover  all of them. Michael's dad worked 16/18 hour days 5 days a week and 6 & 7 days when the work was there, to make what we needed for our son needs. Michael's battle is not over, I am in need of your help, to help me cover Michael's uncovered medical and expenses related to Michael's day to day care.

Please let me start by saying a huge THANK YOU for everly one who has sent gifts and many much needed Prayers for Michael. Thank you to all who contacted me via email with your messages and Prayers.  They all mean so much to both Michael and I.  With continued travel expenses, doctors appointments have us using up every cent and then some. Please I still am very much in need.  I want to say THANK You everyone who has sent Prayers, gifts  and cards to Michael though TD Bank.  I have kept  and shared each card, note and email with Michael whom like myself is so very touched by the outpour of love.

I want to thank all who have come forward from the time of the 1st fundraiser to date.. Michael birthday was just in March he is now 16 years old and we had a wonderful birthday being in remission, and Michael spent it at a NHL Florida Panther game cheering on his beloved FLORIDA PANTHERS who during these past 2 season have been emotionally supportive to Michael the outpour of friendship from the NHL FLORIDA PANTHERS Players has truly touched my heart beyond any words I can say. Many of our players have reached out to Michael in friendship. Michael told me all he wanted for his 16th birthday was " to just to be a regular normal teen" He enjoyed going to the hockey games this season win or loose he cheers on  the Florida Panthers and he  loved being apart of his Jupiter High School "WARRIORS"  football team, Michael own words " I just want to be a normal kid" well as normal as one can be, unfortunaltly this past season 2013-2014 Michael wasnt able to be on the Football team do his condition, but Michael is a true Warrior through and though and in his HUGE heart in every sense of the word he's a WARRIOR.  My son Michael is a wonderful, loving great son, with a great outlook on things,  on his life,  and all with the hand he's been dealt.  He has made me so very PROUD to be his mom.

**I would like to correct something from my news interview on 06/05/2012: http://cbs12.com/news/features/palm-beach-county/stories/vid_281.shtml  When I did my interview on Tuesday June 5th I was nervous and didn't realise I mis-spoke till after I viewed the interview the following morning on the computer. I did all so post this correction to CBS12 links to my son's story under comments. "What I meant to say was Michael's Dysplastic Nevi, were sent out for biopsy and came back as: Melanoma. What I said in interview was "they were biopsy which they were and came back as "Dysplastic Melanoma", that's were I mis-spoke. The correction is: they were "Dysplastic Nevi that sent out for biopsy and came back as "Melanoma" I just wanted to correct myself. The doctors told me the Melanoma Michael has is a direct result from the Sun."
