Dear Family and Friends,

I am writing to you on behalf of our brother, Mike Bates, a beloved husband, father and a true friend to many. Mike suffered a life-changing spinal cord injury following a devastating motorcycle accident over the 2011 Thanksgiving holiday. This was while camping in the desert with family and friends, a 40 year family tradition. Mike is now a C2 quadriplegic.

Thanks, Mike. Glad to donate. It's been many years since we worked together at QUALCOMM, but I think of you often and wish you only the best.
