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 has been home and trying to heal but infection is still raging in his body and the doctors don't seem to know how to fix him. We are all highly concerned that this infection is going to get into his pelvis or internal organs and begin causing even more havoc. He was also recently diagnosed with kidney stones as well as a torn rotator cuff so Mikes pain levels are off the charts right now. He is doing all he can to get past this and get back to life as he knows it. This mess has taken such a huge toll on him both mentally and physically but he wont give up. Mike is in need now more than ever of a mobility vehicle he has expressed such gratitude to all who have donated to his cause and from the cash donations he has received in our local community we have finished paying for the home remodeling that was done while he was in the hospital to widen the bathroom but he still needs an accessible shower. Mikes family is exhausted as is he from the last six months of trying to get him healed from what was supposed to be a simple amputation revision. We all want to say thank you to everyone who has taken their time to care about Mike and his situation.
