Losing a friend to brain cancer
Mike Nagosky, one of my friends from my former department, is about to die from brain cancer. Last month I was informed that he came down with severe headaches and went to the hospital. He had a brain tumor. He had the tumor removed and was supposed to make a full recovery. Apparently last week he slipped into a coma, and last night I was told that he has no brain activity, and they will be taking him off of life support.
He is a great guy. While we didn't know each other (he was about 5 years older than I), we both grew up in the same part of Pennsylvania, and his dad was a local police chief whom my dad knows. We became good friends when we found that out.
His twin brother Paul is also an officer at the same department.
It just shows you that you need to live ilfe to the fullest, because you never know. He went from being a healthy and very physically fit guy to dying in the matter of a month.
