Michael Myers Memorial Scholarship
Michael Allan Myers, MD, was a cancer physician, an avid cyclist, a loving father & husband, and a passionate and funny guy. He started medical school at age 33 after years spent working full-time while going to school. Before entering medical school, he was an auto mechanic and had multiple hospital jobs, including spending several years as a nursing aide. Michael had a special place in his heart for patients battling cancer, and this drove him to pursue a career in radiation oncology.
Michael was beloved by his patients, his wife and two sons, as well as his cycling community. Michael died on November 8, 2018 in a bicycling accident at age 51. His family and his cycling team would like to honor Michael’s life through the Michael A.
