Mike Kic's Battle Starts Now #kiccancer

Mike Kic's Battle Starts Now #kiccancerI've played on the same slo-pitch team for well over a decade now. Some of the parts change, but the core of this team has stayed intact since the early 2000s. As I bounced around the infield, there's only been one man in left field, and that's been Mike Kic.

In addition to being Storm's left fielder, Mike Kic is one of the very best people I know. When Mike Kic married fellow Storm teammate Jordy in 2008, I was honoured to be there. In addition to being a dear friend, Mike Kic is also bananas. I wouldn't have got married in June without him in attendance.


Mike Kic was recently diagnosed with stage IV esophageal cancer. On Friday, he begins treatment. The fight is on so I'm going to do what I've always done when Mike Kic prepares to battle. I'm betting on Kic.

I don't know Mike Kic, but I trust Toronto Mike's judgement. If Toronto Mike says Mike Kic is a great guy, Mike Kic is a great guy.

Stay strong in your fight, Mike K. You can do this!!!!

@Toronto Mike

I remember reading about "the three mikes" on your ball team many years ago.

@Mike Kic

If you're reading this, stay positive. I can't wait to read about your remission.

Yes FUCK cancer - I had it in 1995 (testicular) & went through good & rough times. My twins were only 3 years old at the time & they & my wife made a difference.

Keep the fight & keep strong Mike.
