FBM Press Release:
Mike ‘Tag’ Tagliavento was diagnosed with Stage ll Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma is a cancer that affects the lymphoid tissue, which includes the lymph nodes, spleen and other organs of the immune system. Doctors have discovered tumors in the throat, chest and clavicle areas on Tag, and on Saturday, April 16, Mike took the first step towards recovery, starting 18 weeks of intense chemotherapy.
Currently, Mike Tag is in the ICU in an Ithaca, NY hospital, recovering from complications which included fluid around his heart. Tag hopes to return home as soon as possible and continue treatment. But he needs our help. Mike has no health insurance and cannot work while undergoing chemotherapy.
We The People and the Portland BMX community is stepping in to help out Mike Tag during this difficult time. PLEASE, spread the word, come shred, and support a rider in need!!!
You can donate to the Mike Tag fund here. Any little bit helps.
