At age 21, Michael was diagnosed with ocular melanoma and had his eye removed. In August 2005, it spread to his liver, lungs, hipbone, and vertebrae. He received treatment at MD Anderson in Texas and later passed away in Purvis during an outpatient procedure. Michael never gave up hope and fought strong till the end.
