Michael J. Domaszewicz, 44

Michael J. Domaszewicz, 44, of Chester Springs, husband of Tonya (Cox) Domaszewicz, passed away Tuesday June 4, 2024 at his residence after a valiant battle with cancer.

Born in Allentown, he was the son of the late Fred Domaszewicz and Catherine McKenna.

Mike was a devoted husband to Tonya, his wife of 6 years, and doting father to his 3-year-old daughter Bianca. His family was truly his whole world, and his greatest joy.

Mike was an auto-mechanic, and loved what he did for a living. He took immense pride in his work and ensuring that the families driving in those cars were safe. He was even known to provide free work to little old ladies, or single mothers that did not have a lot of money for car repairs, just so he knew they had a safe vehicle to drive in. He cared deeply for the safety of others and his heart and giving nature was enormous.

His knowledge of not only cars, but anything mechanical or mathematical was infinite. Mike had a true passion for education, specifically science, and said that in another life he would have loved to have been an astrophysicist. You could always find him watching a documentary, reading a book, or documenting his own theories on space, time, and the universe.

Services for Michael will be private.

In lieu of flowers, please consider donating in Michael’s memory to the following non-profit cancer organizations:

“Man Up to Cancer” – www.manuptocancer.org

Man Up to Cancer inspires men to connect and avoid isolation during their cancer journeys.

As North America’s leading support community for men impacted by cancer, we offer peer-to-peer support, an annual retreat, chemo backpack program, learning opportunities, and more than 30 local chapters geared toward improving the quality of life of our members.

When faced with cancer, women tend to “reach out,” and men tend to “check out.” This leads men down the path toward mental health problems, strained relationships, and poor medical outcomes.

It’s time for a new path. We are changing what it means to “Man Up.” It’s not just about being tough. It means having the courage to accept help, and knowing we are smarter and stronger as a pack than we are as lone wolves.

“Heat it to Beat it” – www.give.mdmercy.com

About Heat it to Beat it - Armando Sardi, M.D., Director of The Institute for Cancer Care at Mercy, and his colleagues, Dr. Vadim Gushchin, Dr. Teresa Diaz-Montes and Dr. Kurtis Campbell, are among a finite group of surgical oncologists in the United States considered experts in the treatment of peritoneal carcinomatosis using heated intraperitoneal chemotherapy, known as HIPEC.

For many patients, this surgery is the only chance of long-term survival; however, there is a lack of awareness about the disease and patients are often misdiagnosed and do not receive the most appropriate treatment.

Since its inception in 2009, Heat It To Beat It has raised nearly $2,300,000 to support research led by Dr. Sardi. Now in its 14th year, this patient-led event is focused on generating awareness for the life-saving HIPEC treatment.

When you support Heat It To Beat It you become part of the movement to advance research and awareness of the life-saving HIPEC treatment for peritoneal carcinomatosis.

Add My Condolences
