For Van Halen fan Michael Brewer, health issues were not something he spent a lifetime dealing with. In fact, it wasn’t until 2013 that it all started to unravel for him.
That’s when doctor’s say an auto-immune disease first surfaced for Brewer. Two years later COPD followed, then prostate cancer that metastasized to his bones. Chemotherapy has stopped working, and his diagnosis is terminal. Now he’s set to live life to the fullest.
Earlier this week, he was able to fulfill one of his dreams when he got to meet Eddie Van Halen (who had a long bout with tongue cancer, himself). Eddie grabbed an iPhone, and called Michael via FaceTime.
