 NORTH BABYLON, NY
On April 11th 2017 Michael was at work like any other day. He was at the back of his mail truck getting his mail ready for his next deliveries. A driver speeding recklessly crashed into the back of Mike's truck and critically injured him Severing his leg off and leaving him critical in the  hospital at this moment. Mike is such a amazing friend /co worker of mine and he delivers the mail to my house everyday. His wife and two daughters can use this money to get by until any sort of financial compensation comes from the postal service and or workers comp. Please find it in your heart to help him out. Thank you and God bless

Mike has endured so much in the week since this accident occurred, he had surgery on his left arm a few days ago to repair 2 broken bones. He now has permanent screws and a plate in his arm, he is scheduled to undergo 2 procedures today, 1 procedure on each leg and Mike was told by the physicians that depending on how bad his left leg is, he will have to undergo approximately 4 to 5 more procedures on his leg, Mike will be in the hospital for about 4/5 more weeks, and then will be in a rehab for a few weeks. He is extremely positive considering what he has been thru and is surrounded by his loving family. Please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers

First off I want to say Mike and his family are so extremely thankful for all the people that have donated/shared and prayed for him. Mike is aware of all the love/messages and donations that have been coming in steady since yesterday. It is truly amazing how many of Mike's family and friends and also postal employees family/friends from across this great country were willing to donate their hard earned money. An update on his condition - Mike had his right leg amputated from above his knee. The doctors have him scheduled for a surgery tomorrow to try to save his left leg. He also has a plate in his arm from being broken in the accident. Mike is also fighting off infections and has been having high fevers. This is all the info I have right now. Please keep him in your prayers for his surgery tomorrow and long recovery ahead. Keep sharing this with your family/co-workers/friends or anyone that you think can help raise some money to benfit Mike and his family. I have never been more proud to be in the NALC !

Peace and Love

Mike was my friend too. I worked with him at the North Babylon Post office when he had rt 9. I feel so bad for him and I can't believe that happened. I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the reckless driver was on a cell phone. I hate cell phones. My thoughts and prayers are with Mike for a speedy recovery.
