On June 26, 2018, Michael and his friend were coming back from a motorcycle trip to Maggie Valley. They got caught in a storm and tried to pull over, but Michael's bike was caught by the sidewinds and was pushed into oncoming traffic. He was 5 miles from his home. He was taken by ambulance to the hospital. Surgery was performed on him that evening. The next day Michael's leg was amputated. He seemed to be recovering, but was in a lot of pain. He was eventually transferred to a rehab facility, but 2 days after he was transferred, it was discovered he had an infection in the amputated leg. Michael was transferred back to the hospital and was taken into to surgery 4 more times to have the infection cleaned out of his leg. His hospital bills are mounting up. We are trying to raise money to help with the hospital bills and whatever else he needs. Michael is the sweetest and nicest guy you could ever meet. He has a long road of healing and recovery ahead of him.
