FRAMINGHAM – Framingham resident Michael Busa has been battling stage 4 prostate cancer, since 2012.
“He has had a very optimistic outlook through all of this and has been putting up a good fight working 60 and 70 hours a week,” said close friend Peggy Muise Delaney, who graduated from Waltham High with Busa. Delaney was the Class of 1975 and Busa was Waltham High Class of 1974.
“Unfortunately, the cancer is taking it’s toll, and is now in his bones throughout his body. This past year, he has had to cut back as he physically could not do the strenuous work that landscaping and sprinkler installation requires,” wrote Delaney, who created a GoFundMe today, Nov. 12 to help Busa.
“The doctors have come to the end of the treatments for which might help and just recently found that he has a good-sized tumor in his prostate. The medical bills are astronomical above $70,000 so far and this on top of the regular monthly bills is just too much for the family to keep up with,” wrote Delaney.
Busa, grew up in Waltham, and he has been in Framingham since 1987 with his wife Deborah, Waltham High Class of 1975.
He is well-known in the sports community in Framingham.
The GoFundMe was started today, November 12. The goal is to raise $50,000.
