We are very sorry for the old video. We already traveled to Minnesota. Mikey had a feeding tube installed there, and a couple weeks ago he removed it in Los Angeles clinic. But this video still will show you the condition he is in and his day to day routine.

Thank you.

Hello everyone!
I wanted to update you on our story.
We already got back from MAYO clinic in Minnesota where we spent 3 weeks. Unfortunately doctors weren't able to find the problem, they just placed a feeding tube in Mike's lower intestine. So right now he is back home but struggling even more because of the pain and lack of professional help. This tube makes it even harder for him to get around his apartment. He needs a 24 hour care. His wound needs to be cleaned and tube needs to be rotated a few times a day. It also needs to be flushed with water every 2 hours, otherwise Mike will get dehydrated and other problems might accrue. And this is just a small part of his daily struggles... You can find out more about him and his life on his facebook page where he is very active:

We really appreciate all the donations, but Mike needs more money to cover his expenses, please keep them coming and keep sharing this page! His life depends on it!
Thank you all so much!

Hello and welcome one and all!

Wherher you know him personally or through the internet, we have all been touched at some point by the inspirational Mikey Oliveri - an extraordinary guy who doesn't let any physical limitations keep him from living and experiencing life to the fullest. Mikey was born with the genetic disease Muscular Dystrophy and, in the last 15 years, has developed a slew of very painful stomach issues that have been getting progressively worse. Mikey has always been able to smile through the pain, no matter what, until recently. The pain in his stomach is now worse than ever and has led to an inability to eat, causing rapid weight loss. At 6'0", he's a meager 85 lbs and dropping fast. It's getting more difficult for Mikey to smile through the pain and fear - and more difficult to watch him try.

We want to help him to get better and figure out how his illnesses can be treated to restore health and balance to his body so he can keep living his incredible life. And for all of this he needs a lot of financial help. Medical bills, medicine, caregivers, bills, special furniture etc.
We need all the help he can get and any help is beneficial - even if it's just a dollar. And If you can't help financially, we would really appreciate if you could share this page with your friends through social networking. The more people who see this, the more chances we get to raise our goal for our amazing friend!
Thank you in advance for anything you can do. May your life always grace you and your loved ones with health, peace and happiness.

Walk with the dreamers, the believers, the courageous, the cheerful, the planners, the doers, the successful people with their heads in the clouds and their feet on the ground. Let their spirit ignite a fire within you to leave this world better than when you found it.
