He's unable to work or care for his family. Patricia is his full time caretaker. Please give to this Family as they struggle to meet this new financial reality. The Maher Family is Grateful for your previous & ongoing Support.
We believe with your help, Mike's Determination, the Families Love, continued Thoughts ♥️ & Prayers from ALL of you & many others; Michael can achieve his goals towards a more independent free life.
All The Love, ♥️ Michael, Patricia, Jack & Michael Jr.
Words can not begin to express how Grateful we are for your Kindness. We feel so Blessed just to have you in our lives. It was such a lovely surprise to have the entire Morris Family stop over, with the beautiful basket full of your very generous Christmas gifts. They brought such joy, many happy tears & also much stressful relief. Thank you all for your generosity. We are deeply touched by all you have and continue to do for our family.
Just to catch up, Mike had a short set back over the Summer. We are very pleased to say he's back on track & moving forward with his therapy.
Michael Jr. just turned 14 this month & Jack will be 18 at the end of December. Both boys are growing & doing very well in their schools.
Thank you again for being there for our family. It means so much.
Wishing you All a very Merry Christmas, Happy Holiday Season & Joyous New✨Year!
All Our Love, ♥️The Maher’s

It hasn't & we know won't be easy. There have been setbacks & many struggles. We have a long way to go... But we are moving forward. All the Love!
Wishing You All A Very Happy Thanksgiving!
