Mike's Health Crisis

Many of us know Mike Lynch as a musician with Passage or as a single act called Double Vision. Mike has been playing all his life and this is where his symptoms started to show that his health was in jeopardy. Over the course of the last 4- 6 months, his balance, coordination, and mental well being have deteriorated to a point that he was taken to the Foothills Hospital. It has been determined that Mike is showing many signs of Creutzfedt Jacob Disease but it is too early to say for sure. There is no treatment for this extremely rare brain disease and he, with his wife Marlene, are being put to the ultimate test. With Mike not well, they are relying on Marlene's source of income which on its own does not cover all the bills that have gotten behind or the everyday ones; plus the added cost with being at the hospital everyday. This is a very progressive disease so if you know Mike, please make sure to show your support by reaching out to him and if you can, please donate any funds you can to help them through. Your generosity would be most appreciated. Thank you!
