Family and friends of Michael “Mike” Bechaver are raising money for the nonprofit Help Hope Live to fund expenses associated with Catastrophic Injury.
Mike has always been the guy who would give you the shirt off his back but now he needs some help to get his quality of life back. Mike was a truck driver on a mission to lose weight and get healthy after getting to over 450lbs. He had weight loss surgery in 2017 and was on a good road to his goal of 200lbs. when he was out walking his daily 8 miles and was hit by a pick up truck while in a cross walk.

Mike’s surgery went great and he is recovering well. They found a bone spur that was causing him pain and damaging the muscles in his leg so with that removed he should heal and have a lot less daily pain.
He is struggling to get around without a accessible vehicle since surgery and has had two instances where he almost fell to the ground trying to get into the car from his chair. His life would be so much brighter and safer if he just had a vehicle that was accessible for him.

On August 13, 2020 Mike and his family were given notice to vacate their home (he has lived in for 7 years) by September 15, 2020. This was a huge shock and he wanted to cancel his much needed surgery, but his fiance convinced him not to let this challenge keep him from having it done. So amidst working to get him healed the family will be searching for a new home and working on packing. Their lives are being turned upside down by this when they were being told they were going to receive a rent to own contract to buy the home. With both adults in the family being disabled they are not allowing this to let them get down about their situation. They are planning to spend the next few weeks taking care of what Mike may need while packing up and holding yard sales to raise money to have a deposit on a new home.
