Mike Needs Our Help!
Mike’s life was turned upside-down when he was diagnosed with liver cancer. He has fought through all of the treatments that his doctors have had to offer, but the cancer is still there. Now a liver transplant is his only hope; Hope to see his granddaughter graduate high school, hope to return to work, hope to dance and sing at his niece’s wedding.
You may have seen Mike in one of his many works of charity. He worked 60-70 hours a week at the Grapevine Fellowship’s Food Pantry. Even after his diagnosis he kept working, right up until he just didn’t have the strength. He sang with Phyl’s Angels to raise money and spread joy. He donated all of his earnings back into the food pantry to ensure that more people could be fed.
Now, after so many years helping others, Mike needs our help. Even with insurance, there are many out-of-pocket expenses that Mike needs to be prepared for. There are obvious costs of medication and the hospital. In addition, he will also need help covering the cost of temporary relocation while waiting for the transplant. He will have to stay within two hours of Loma Linda University Medical Center in California for many weeks post-transplant, so he won’t be able to stay in his home in Las Vegas. He will also need to have a caregiver with him during this time.
To help with the financial burden of Mike’s uninsured expenses, a fundraising campaign in his honor has been established with Help Hope Live, a trusted nonprofit organization that has been providing community-based fundraising guidance to patients and their families for more than 30 years. All donations are tax-deductible to the full extent allowed by law, are held by Help Hope Live in the Southwest Liver Transplant Fund, and are administered by Help Hope Live for transplant-related expenses only. Please consider making a contribution.
If we all work together we can make this happen. On behalf of Mike, his friends, his family, we all thank you for your support, your generosity, and your prayers.
With sincere gratitude,
Jennifer Knight, Mike’s Niece (the one whose wedding he’s supposed to sing at)
