Mike was to return to duty on 9/6/17 after recovering from back surgery. However, 2 days prior he went to the ER for stomach pain. Suddenly, a four hour ER visit turned into hospitalization at the James Cancer Center at The Ohio State University Medical Center and the diagnosis of cancer.

This is devastating news to all who know and love Mike. There is not a soul in our organization that could speak ill of Mike Ware.

Mike recently was transferred to patrol the Village of Lincoln Heights. Being a veteran of our department for over twenty years he was excited to work in a beat where he felt like he could make a difference. Mike does.

I was honored to be working with Mike when we were dispatched to a shooting when over 100 rounds were fired and four people were shot. Mike responded to a residence where two victims were located, secured the scene and aided the victims located there by himself. His conduct was was exceptional and commended.

I never have to worry with Mike by my side. Now it's time to give back to my brother, friend and partner off and on for twenty years. Now I worry because Mike is not by my side. I need to step up and help my friend and partner.

I humbly ask for your help for the best partner, friend, fiancé, dad, brother, son and all around great human being someone can have. Mike has a fiancé and four children to take care of.  I'm asking for donations to defer medical costs and for immediate financial needs that the family may have.

It is my hope that Mike has touched enough people in a like manor to help with needs that Mike and his family would have at this time. 

Thank you in advance and if you are unable to donate funds, thoughts prayers and well wishes will be accepted.

Please spread the word about my brother. Thanks.
