Family Faced with Cancer Fights for a Cure

Written by 

BANGOR - It's been said many times, everyone knows someone affected by cancer. At Relay for Life there are several families remembering loved ones, and continuing to support those fighting.

One local family has been facing cancer for a few years now, but they're fighting back and doing all they can to find a cure.

Cancer isn't a foreign term for the Openshaws. 44-year-old Mike, husband and dad of three girls, lives with the terminal illness day in and day out.

Mike had a tumor removed seven years ago, and they thought they were in the clear.  But a few years later he started to experience pain. This time it was cancer.

Since then, the disease has metastasized throughout his body, and mike has become familiar with his diagnosis.

But he's not letting it stop him. He and his family continue to work tirelessly to raise money to find a cure for cancer.
