Make A Difference For Mike

On Wednesday January 31, 2018, my boyfriend, Michael Seleman, suffered a traumatic and life-changing injury to his left hand in a work related accident. Mike was airlifted to Metro Health Hospital, a Level 1 Trauma Center in Cleveland, Ohio, where he underwent 14 hours of emergency surgery to save his hand and life. The damage to his left hand and palm was extensive, as all of his fingers were completely severed. The amazing surgeons and medical staff at the hospital  are doing their best to reattach one of his fingers and rebuild his thumb as a best-case scenario.

Needless to say, Mike and his family will need our help as they face the challenges that lie ahead. Medical costs, physical therapy, and a prosthetic hand will certainly pose a financial hardship on Mike and his family, not to mention loss of work and having to take a leave of absence from his studies at Kent State University. My hope is that with your help, we can ease the financial burden and allow Mike to focus on his recovery and adjust to these life-changing circumstances.

Please help me in my effort to Make a Difference For Mike through both prayer and a monetary donation. On behalf of Mike and his family, thank you for your love and support.
