 NORTH CHILI, NY
I am starting this go fund me for my father Mike Mulcahy. He is currently living in Alaska for work. Saturday, April 15th, my father suffered a massive stroke. He is now in  Anchorage, Alaska at the Providence Medical Center where he is currently in the ICU. My father is a family first, very loving, and down to earth guy. My dad is the most kind hearted and caring person i've ever known and will ever know. He always makes sure his family and friends are taken care of, so this is our turn to take care of him. The stroke has taken away his ability to walk or talk. He knows who we are and communicates as best as he can through his facial expressions and hand gestures. He will need extensive rehab and medical attention. We would like to get him back to NY so he can be with his family. My dad is alone in Alaska during the worst time of his life. My siblings and I are all in N.Y. state. His doctors have informed us that he is unable to take a commerical flight back home due to the current state of health he is in, therefore he will need to be medically transported back home. This could cost up to $100,000 so we need as much help as we can. His insurance won't cover any of the flight home. I know my dad wants to be in N.Y so that his children and family can assist him with overcoming the many obstacles that he is going to endure. Share with all friends and family and I believe we can reach our goal. Thank you and god bless.

Hello everyone!!

Can you believe its been 4 months that my dad has been in the hospital?? He cant either lol and thankfully he is THE MOST positive person through all of this. We owe a lot of his recovery to his mental health and ability to stay optimistic. The amount of love and support he has received keeps him going and it does not go unnoticed. We are beyond blessed for all of the prayers. Please...keep them coming as we aren't exaacctly out of the woods yet. But there is light!!

We also have some good news...he will be leaving rehab this Friday and will be staying with me (his daughter) and son-in-law (my husband, of course) for the remainder of his recovery. He's walking 90% unassisted, and can pretty much do everything on his own, give or take a few things he needs help with. His humor is better than ever, and he continues to improve everyday. With a bit more outpatient and the constant at-home rehab I have planned for him, he will be good as new!! We have goals set and are ready to continue this path of recovery!

Words cant express how GRATEFUL we all are for the money that has been raised through this Go-Fund Me account to help pay for his medical expenses and needs. My heart is so full knowing that our family has made an impact with all of you in some way. Thank you just doesn't seem enough.

I love you all! THANK YOU from the bottom of our hearts.

xoxo

As of 5/23 he does not have the tracheotomy. He's is talking very well. He is also eating regular food but needs to be cut into small pieces which is a huge step forward. I have some GREAT news!!! He's able to take a commercial flight home. If all goes right we should have him home by Saturday. Once he gets home he will then go to Unity Hospital where there he will finish up his rehab. I once again want to thank everyone for their thoughts and prayers it really worked. I will have another update once he's home and let everyone know what room etc..
