Help Mike Feel Love (Not Hate)!

Mike Hansen is my brother.  My family and I (Jackie Hobson) have been talking care of him over the last month as he has been recovering from a brutal attack of two men until he was unconscious and then they left him for dead.  This attack happened in Provo, Utah.   

By the time their cruelty was finished, Mike had a shattered skull, a collapsed lung, two broken ribs, and stab wounds to the head. They finished their work by cutting off most of his right ear. Mike’s heart was without a beat for five minutes before they could revive him. Please help by showing Mike there is love in the world and not just hate and evil!
 

His attackers have still not been found by the police. Here is a link to one of the many news stories.  In it there is the number to the police.  They are looking for help with any leads. http://www.good4utah.com/news/local-news/police-looking-for-information-after-man-found-stabbed-in-exchange-park/863888548


 Mike has made a lot of progress over the past couple weeks. His recovery will be long. Mike did not have insurance when this happened. Beyond his surgery and hospital stay, he needs months of occupational, physical, and speech therapy. 

We have applied for numouras programs, including the Victoms of Crimes program, however the bills will add up beyond the maximum grant amount.  The hospital has been great and had donated 20 visits, however he will need therapy for months to come. 

We will be using the funds to help pay for therapy visits as well as trying to insure he has medical insurance in the near future to help.  If there is enough raised then we are hoping to put some towards a Medpor Reconstructive Ear surgery (which will run over 30,000 dollars).  I will be withdrawing the funds and togther with my Mom we will help manage this money for Mike. 

 
Please help us lift Mike’s spirits through donations and encouraging comments. Any donation, large or small, will help.  If you are unable to donate, please share this with your friends. We will read him your ‘Get Well’ wishes and notes of encouragement as he continues to recover. 

 
Thank you,
The Grateful Family and Friends of Mike Hansen
