He was only 30 years old and Friday we had to send him off to our lord so he wouldn't suffer anymore. He was the best brother & son anyone could ever ask for. In the 3 days prior to his death he developed massive brain swelling had severe seizures suffered a brain bleed and his blood pressure spiked so high it caused him to suffer several heart attacks due to PRES Syndrome, He then suffered major organ failure.
He was born with Alports Syndrome which requires a kidney transplant and he was on dialysis for the past 6.5 years. He was on the kidney transplant list for that long too. He was told he'd regain his health once he had a transplant. That hope kept him going. He never complained because he had faith he'd get better. He desperately wanted to be normal again. His health was stable so this has left us heartbroken.
Because he was so young he had no life insurance and we don't have the funds to cover his cremation & cost of an urn.
Anything you can spare would be greatly appreciated. Mike deserved so much better than this. He was very special to all that knew him. this man imprinted on so many lives and I want to give him the best we can, the same as he gave and did for others. If you cant donate i understand but pls share this all over where you can to get this out there and just maybe a miracle could happen so my mother can have her son home and this heavy weight off of her shoulders and be able to rest and grieve with the rest of us. pls and thank you even a dollar would help. Thank you all and god bless.
