Michael (Bo) Road to Recovery

My name is Melanie and this campaign is for my dear friend, best friend Michael (Bo) whom i love and cherish.
On November 28,  while in New Orleans, Michael (Bo) was tragically shot in the chest while having an argument with a friend. He was rushed to University Medical Center, where he remains and is receiving critical medical care. He suffered an injury to the spinal cord.  He's paralyzed from the waist down.
He has no insurance. No source of income, no way to pay the mounting medical bills and other related expenses ( medicines, wheelchair, treatments, rehabilitation etc etc. ) This unfortunate incident happened right after we lost our home and was destroyed by a fire. We've lost pretty much everything and had to start from scratch.

Its been a really tough recent months. Michael (Bo) has definitely seen better days. This has been way too much for anyone to handle. He needs your love, prayers, support and understanding. He needs a chance to life. To prove and show the real beauty in him. The great qualities he have underneath all the layers which most of you didnt get a chance to see and experience. I did... I fell in love with it...

Lets give him hope....A chance of a new life...It may be with  a wheelchair but it'll be a new life...A new beginning...

Your support and donation ( no donation is too small) would go directly to his account and will be used to pay for hospital/medical bills, treatments, rehab, therapies , home care and all other expenses to help him adjust to his new condition. 

In behalf of his family, we thank you for your generosity, prayers, love and support.
