Recovery from this autoimmune disease could take weeks to several months.
As you can imagine several weeks to several months of medical expenses will be extremely costly. Valerie will also need to help assist Michael in his recovery and we want to help them only worry about getting better. Not the financial burden.
Michael is a loving husband and father of 2 young boys and we desperately want to do whatever we can to help his entire family through this.
We at FBBC will be paying his full-time salary as he recovers and will be matching up to $10,000 raised to cover his medical expenses.
We will be matching 50 cents for every dollar raised up to $10,000 through this Gofundme account.
Michaels fitness family needs him more than ever. It would be a huge burden lifted off his shoulders if we can all come together and help him through this challenging time.
I am setting this up without his knowledge because he would never ask for this and is probably mad at me doing this.
Michael has had a huge impact on so many peoples lives. Let's wrap our arms around Michael in his time of need.
