Battle like Buckley


After 4 long years and a record 250 chemo and 80 radiation treatments….Michael's amazing Battle continues against Multiple Myeloma. Only a month ago, he opted for a new and dangerous Bone Marrow Transplant procedure. He was pummeled by doctors and technicians using an experimental approach. The fantastic news is that after a month of isolation, his counts are excellent. Only monitoring is needed. Michael was released from the hospital and is now back in his apartment. BUT...now the rebuilding begins!

To honor Michael and his inspiring Battle, we have put together a program to help him get back on his feet after his hard fought battle. As you can imagine, 100% of his energy has been directed towards his health and continued recovery. We have designed a stretchy blue wrist band inscribed “Battle like Buckley” which we will mail to you for a donation of any amount. We are hoping to distribute some 250 bands to his wide array of friends and raise some $25,000 for this cause. A GoFundMe page has been set up (link below) and the bands have been secured. After visiting the GoFundMe page, please email your home address us ([email redacted]) and we will pop 2 bands in the mail to you!

For most of us…we wake each day to live life.

For Michael every day involves a Battle.

He has become an inspiration to so many of us after his early, dark diagnosis. At the same time, your love, prayers and support inspire him to keep fighting. Thanks so much for your generous support and lets do this together!

Thanks so much for the daily assistance of Frank & Shelley Brandt and (his brother) Henry & Lisa Brandt. They have all been instrumental in the continuous help Michael has needed over the years. We want to thank Frank Brandt for helping manage this generous fund distribution as beneficiary and helping with key details of his affairs.

A great team effort in the Millburn High School & Texas tradition!
