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.

New hope this week for Mike!

January 8, 2022

This is one of the hardest things mike has dealt with to date and none of us know what is gonna happen next. Mike says this is not the end of his story and that he is NOT coming home to just die but it sure doesn’t seem promising at this point. We are modifying our home as much as we can to make it easiest for Mike but the need for funding is great. The bathroom needs to be widened and a shower put in instead of a tub for access with a caregiver. We also need a ramp that is regulation length for him to get in and out of the house. As well as the huge need for a mobility vehicle that handles his powerchair. We are planning to do all we can to get Mike past this and make sure this isnt the end of his story but we really could use help to make his quality of life the best we can for what ever time he has. We hope that time is many many more years.
