Michael Piatt

Michael Piatt 300x269
Michael Piatt was 26 years old when he lost his battle to brain cancer. He was diagnosed in 2006. He fought hard for 4 years, with a smile on his face and with unwavering faith.

During one of his first visits to MD Anderson, a nurse entered the room. Pinned to her shirt was a button that read â?oCancer Sucks.â? Michael, although suffering from pain, softly began to chuckle. He then said, “Yes; cancer sucks, but God is good.”

No matter how sick he was, he always found a way to proclaim Christ in all things. He would often come home after a long day, with a smile on his face, all because someone asked about the scar on his head. He loved sharing about cancer, because it always gave him an opportunity to share about Christ. He was so thankful for that.

He went home to be with his Savior, on December 12, 2010. He left behind his wife of 4 ½ years, his 3 ½ month old son, a loving family and a host of friends.

He made a difference in this life and was dearly loved by all who knew him.
