We Got Michael's Back

For those of you who have seen Michael in the past few years, you've probably noticed some dramatic changes. He moves with difficulty, looks kind of crooked, and often walks with a cane. He's also frequently in a tremendous amount of pain. Michael was rear-ended by a hit and run driver two years ago, and is still struggling. He has been pursuing all possible treatment for his pain and, amazingly, has not lost his sense of humor, compassion, and good nature, but life has been very difficult for him. Lately, his condition has been nearly incapacitating. 

Michael is self employed and has not been able to work more than part-time for the past few years. For the past month, he has not been able to work at all and its unclear when he'll be able to resume. He has run out of savings and he needs our help, ASAP, to get through this next phase of convalescence. This fundraiser will be active only until March 2018, so please support Michael as soon as you can, however you feel moved to do so...
