About Teresa Micheal and Victor Micheal

Teresa Micheal had stage 4 colon cancer that had spread to her lungs.  Her husband Victor had been her devoted caregiver for over 3 years and he had to miss work, deal with debt, and learn to handle pic lines and stents and colostomy care.  They joked that he was going to earn a medical degree the hard way. Teresa and her oncology social worker, Patty Plaskon, nominated Victor for a CaringOn gift. Several months before Teresa passed away in November 2020, Victor was able to take a break from his role as caregiver to enjoy his gift – a fishing trip with friends on the Chesapeake Bay.
