As many of you know, on Thursday, September 28th unbeknownst to Michael, he had a blood clot on his brain and at the gym from the straining of lifting weights it burst. Michael came home and went right to his apartment in ouf basement where he suffered a massive stroke at the age of 53. The survival part of his story is that we did not find Michael until Sunday, four days later, where he laid with no food or water. He could hear us upstairs but beacuse of the stroke was unable to make any sound or movement to get our attention.
Michael was taken to South Nassau hosptial where he was being treated for two weeks. He had lost all movement on the left side of his body due to the effects of the stroke. Michael is now at a rehab facility in Long Beach where he has began treatment in hopes to gain back that movement.
As you can imagine the cost for the necessary physical therapy Michael will need is extensive and the insurance only covers so much. We all are hoping he is able to gain back the ability of his left side but it is now a fight between Michael and God.
Your donations will go towards necessary physical therapy and personal care that Michael will need in the months to come.
We all love Michael and are rooting for him!
Please keep him in your prayers!
Thank you for all your help, love, and support!
