Helping Michael Miles

Three years ago, I walked into dance class, met one of the most delightful people, and will never be the same. 

If you know Michael Miles, you probably feel the same way. This infinitely talented man brightens every room and I've never spent time with him when I did not laugh. 

Not only is Michael a talented, funny and beautiful human being but he is one of the kindest people you know. 

If anybody knows of a word that means "someone who makes everyone feel happy" please let me know because I can not come up with a suitable word for the supremely loved and cherished Michael Miles. 

Now Michael needs your help. Diverticulitis caused a rupture in his bowel which caused a perforation in his colon. In order to heal the reconstructed colon, it has been temporarily redirected to a colostomy. There has been plenty of vomiting and fluids have collected in his stomach so they have inserted a tube to help drain them. 

He is at the beginning of a long road to recovery which I feel desperate to help him with. If your day has ever been brightened by this man, if your child nailed his or her pirouettes because of him, or you have seen his bravery and grit... please consider donating whatever you can to aid him in his time of need.
