Antcliffe, who has just returned from a difficult trip to Princess Margaret Hospital in Toronto, posted on his wall last Tuesday evening, "Well everybody, today was a tough one, no doubts about that. Tough news to get, especially with someone you care so much about sitting at your side. But I've had worse news, and I've made it through tougher days. I'm still here. It isn't the first time a highly-trained medical professional has suggested that I put my affairs in order, more accurately the third time, I believe. I'm still here. This is the fourth type of drug they've given me that worked for a while, and then became ineffective. I'm still here. It is however the first time a doctor has come out to find me in the waiting room and stated, 'Hey, i just Googled you. Good work.' Still here! Good night guys, sleep well. I plan to." It is Antcliffe's ability to face each new piece of bad news with both determination and optimism that has attracted such a loyal following on facebook


Michael Jack Antcliffe was born May 13th, 1975 in the old McKeller Hospital in Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada. The Michael Antcliffeyoungest of three children (siblings Christopher and Jennifer) in a working-class family, Michael spent his early years raised by his parents, Alan and Mary, in a country setting in the township of Scoble, a short distance southeast of the city of Thunder Bay. He enjoyed a childhood that inspired a love of nature and the outdoors. Michael moved back into the city in time to attend Sir Winston Churchill High School and continued his education at the University of Manitoba, where he stayed and worked as a youth care worker at Jessie Home Inc., for five years after the completion of university. Missing his family, Michael returned to his home town and began earning his way doing home renovations and construction, eventually finding employment with a university friend at First Class Finishing. Always choosing to keep life simple and concentrating on time spent with friends and loved ones, Michael continued to follow this philosophy after being afflicted with malignant melanoma and forced onto disability.

Presently, Michael is exploring fundraising avenues and seeking to improve the lives of those stricken by cancer, whose fight each day is simply to reach the next. He is also making the most of his time, choosing to spend it with family and friends. Michael’s siblings, Christopher and Jennifer still live in Thunder Bay, along with their parents.
