Michael says his grandfather lost his life to pancreatic cancer.
“To watch him ... He’s the most genuine person I’ve ever met and to be struck down with that is just not fair. It was really hard to watch my family go through it, I’m still getting emotional thinking about it.”
However, he has found a silver lining in the situation.
“One thing he asked me to do was to support my grandmother [Nonna] and I make sure I go there every week to have dinner and check up on her.”
