On Friday, August 31st, as Michael Donnelly was heading home from a visit to the MN State Fair, he was brutally attacked and as a result has sustained a very serious brain injury. Mike has been my best friend since we met in the plumbing industry. I liked him instantly. He is a hard working, reliable man and always makes me laugh with his witty comments. I think there are many people out there that would consider him as one of their closest friends because of his fun-loving, helpful nature. He is absolutely one of the most generous people I know. Whatever you need, Mike steps up without question or hesitation. Mike is currently in the ICU, in critical condition in a local hospital. The road ahead of him to recovery is going to be long and difficult and dangerous. One that will consist of long hospital stays, rehabilitation, and a long absence from work. So I am here to ask you to be there for Mike, the way he has been there for so many. It is our turn to repay the kindness he has shown to others by stepping up to help alleviate some of the stress this horrible tragedy has brought. Tiffany Washek, Mike's girlfriend, is in charge of the Go Fund Me and will be withdrawing for Mike's medical bills.
