Setra Systems invites you to participate in a 5K walk/run to support the Turner family in Mike’s memory. Mike joined Setra Systems as a Product Manager in November of 2013 where he excelled at driving innovation in marketing and building relationships with his coworkers. Mike was a very dynamic person; extremely intelligent yet had the uncanny ability to connect with people with a variety of different interests. Mike has made a great impact on the Setra family; his contributions as a professional and as a friend will never be forgotten.
Prior to joining Setra, in May of 2011 our friend Mike Turner was diagnosed with a rare form of cancer called Fibrosarcoma located in his upper jaw and sinus. Mike underwent an extensive operation to remove the tumor that also required the removal of Mike's entire right sinus and upper right jaw. Surgery was followed by 40 rounds of proton radiation therapy that finished in September 2011. Two weeks before celebrating his 3rd year cancer free and a month after the birth of his son Brennan, Mike experienced a recurrence of his cancer. After a one and a half year battle; Mike succumbed to the disease.
While nothing will bring Mike back, we hope to ease the burden on the Turner family and support them in any way that we can. Mike was a great father, husband, son, brother, friend and coworker to many of us; our goal is to provide the Turner family with the support that Mike would have provided if the roles were reversed. Your generosity means a lot to the family and to those who love them; no donation is too small.
