Mike Terry

Dear Friends,    As I sit and write this entry I am humming the song, "Ain't No Mountain High Enough"  by Marvin Gaye and Tammi Terrell.      This is an inspiring song that my dear friend Mike Terry would sing at work on a repeat rotation.  If you know him you might have heard him humming it too.  It is a song that fits him well because the lyrics describe both the lengths he would go through for his family/friends and the tenacity with which he approaches challenges.   This year for Mike has been the biggest challenge of all.     In late May 2018 our dear friend Mike Terry was involved in a terrible accident on his moped.  He was lucky to have survived this.  Since that time he has fought for his life and for his way back from some severe injuries which involved a lengthy ICU stay and an extended stay at a rehab facility.   Of course this type of medical care involves quite a high price tag.  And unfortunately his insurance will no longer continue to pay for his stay at rehab.  He still requires continued care throughout the day and this will likely result in extra bills for extended home care and/or relocation costs.       We are hoping to raise funds to assist in the coverage of Mike's medical bills and keep him on the path to recovery.      Mike is a warm hearted and devoted friend.  He has worked at the University of Michigan Medical Center for over 25 year and was always there for his patients and colleagues with a big heart, a contagious smile and a sense of humor.   He has touched and positively influenced so many lives during his life and career.    We are hoping that we can help him out too!    Please consider any kind of donation so we can help him continue healing.   We just added a dollar amount so we could start the account but will be changing this as we receive feedback from his family.   Thank you!!
