Mike's head injury


20865482_1496373[phone redacted]_funddescriptionHello everyone-
For those of you that may not know me, my name is Lisa. I'm Mike's sister or as I like to call him Mikey. I decided to create this gofund me page for him, his wife Sarah and their two children. Recently as you all have heard my brother had basically a freak accident. Tuesday May 30th he was at a FOP golf outing for work. He ended up taking a pretty good fall which got him into the ICU. He was transported by ambulance to Henry ford hospital. He was diagnosed with a fractured skull which we found out is pretty deep and big. He also has bruising on the brain and a small brain bleed. Each day that he was in the hospital he surprised us all with his strength to get better. He went into the hospital in pretty bad shape, like not remembering certain things to being one tough cookie that got discharged from ICU on June 1st. Like who gets discharged right from ICU to home?!? Shocking right? He's a fighter that's for sure. It's amazing how much he improved within a few days. But the recovery process isn't over unfortunately. He's happy to be home but he still isn't in tip top shape. Mike will be unable to work for awhile due to his condition and needs to still recover. His wife Sarah has been taking care of him and currently hasn't been to work either. I'm sure they can get by and try to work things out. But I wanted to help them out anyways. They would do the same thing for anyone else, which they have done something like this recently for a fallen officer and his family. That's the type of people Sarah and Mike are. They try to help everyone out and don't expect anything in return. They have big hearts and are such amazing people. My brother would probably shoot me if he knew I was making this page for him because he's the type that wants to help people but wouldnt want to ask for help himself.  So I'm asking for him. He is after all a police officer that puts his life on the line for us and feels pride in doing so.

So in return to my brother and his family I made this page to HELP him out for a change. An ambulance ride as some of you may know, is crazy expensive just alone. To be in ICU for a few days and have cat scans and all the other medical stuff he needed done, adds up. Moving forward he will have appointments and whatever else  is needed still. I felt I needed to do this for them to take off some stress. So if you would like to please help them out it would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you friends, family, our extended family in blue, who have sent prayers and well wishes...you all have been AMAZING and I know Mike appreciates each and every one of you!
