Mike Shelley and Shelley Family

On Sunday March 18th everything changed for the Shelley family.

Mike Shelley, devoted, loving husband and father; veteran; dedicated Corrections Officer; was very seriously injured as a result of an accident while driving his dune buggy. 
Mike was airlifted to  a hospital in Grand Rapids Michigan where he had to undergo multiple emergency surgeries. 

As a result of his injuries Mike is left paralyzed from the waist down. Mike and his family have spent countless hours at the hospital and rehabilitation facility. 

Wife Jessica Shelley has not left his side. Both Mike and Jessica are are undergoing financial hardships due to this tragedy.  With the help of friends and family they have managed to get through the toughest few weeks they have ever faced.

At this point it is unclear if Mike will ever be able to return to work. Jessica has limited work availability due to the care she is giving to her husband. 

Any donation would be greatly appreciated by the Shelley family who has undergone such an awful hardship.

We are very blessed to still have Mike's smiling face in our lives and his strong attitude and sense of humor.

Please share with family and friends.

With the help of Jessica Shelley's friends, family and church we are planning a Taco Buffet, Bake sale and silent auction fundraiser in Ludington as well. If anyone would like to donate to the silent auction fundraiser please contact Erin Gutowski.

Thank you for your support,
Erin Gutowski
