38 years old father of two young children, PARALYZED.
This fund is set up for Mike’s family during a time of incredible heartache, to help them navigate a long road of recovery and treatment. This fund will help with medical expenses, home care, childcare and rehabilitiation.
On May 30, 2022, while vacationing in Hawaii with his family and two young kids, Mike got into an accident at Waikiki Beach. He dove into the water and landed on a sand bar, fracturing his spine and injuring his spinal cord. He was instantly paralyzed from chest down.
The diagnosis: Quadriplegic, C4-C6 complete spinal cord injury with no chance of walking again.
He’s been in the ICU and hospitalized in Hawaii for one month, unable to breath or eat on his own. It was one of the scariest moments of our lives.
Mike’s recovery was slow and just recently transferred back “home” in California where he will be in inpatient rehab facility to learn how to live an independent life on a wheelchair.
As you can imagine, Mike’s accident has turned his life upside down, and brought our entire family to our knees. We dropped everything to come together, for his medical care, his business, his family, especially his two young kids. At 38 years young, this accident has been a wakeup call for everyone around him. A reminder to appreciate every moment of your life, because it can all change literally within seconds.
