MORE FROM MIKE'S 03/12/16 UPDATE ON THE UPDATES LINK PAGE
Thanks for visiting our Indiana Jones family wish page!
brother, Mike, his son, Conor (pictured left), and his family are in serious
need of help!
Our goal with this website is to raise awareness and to help Mike's family...to help them keep their heads above water and to cover their necessary medical expenses and to allow them keep up on day-to-day expenses.
everyone shares this story with their friends, neighbors, on Facebook, etc…,
Mike's family will definitely get the prayers and support that they need.
Through the generosity and prayers of others, Mike's family will find hope.
A multi-systemic, undiagnosed illness has impacted Mike, Conor (now 19 years old), and Makenna's (now 14) health. Mike's 16-year-old daughter has been spared many of the health issues thus far, but has some of the symptoms/findings found in the three most affected family members.
This whole ordeal has taken a toll on not only their health, but also their financial situation. With this website, the goal is to help buy my brother
and his family time to heal, to give his family breathing room and to help pay for
some of their needs so they can work toward a clear diagnosis and - ultimately - cure or treatment plan.
Mike, Conor, and Makenna are still partially undiagnosed and their illness has progressed, but recently there has been a breakthrough in the case thanks to some expensive genetic testing. Finding a clear diagnosis and treatment plan or cure will likely mean searching the globe for help. Mike's insurance does not cover Mayo or Cleveland Clinic - or any out of state clinic for that matter. They need help!
Mike is a father of three great children, Conor, Payton, and Makenna.
Mike is a great guy who makes a huge difference in this world. Since he was a little boy, Mike has been a very generous person with the many talents he has to offer.
When he was a young boy, he'd visit the elderly ladies in the neighborhood and play cards with them -- giving some older women smiles and happiness. He worked with special needs students for 13 years while living in the Twin Cities -- spending countless hours of his own time taking those kids to Minnesota Twins games, fishing trips, bowling, and more. He volunteered his time in church, sharing his music skills and his love for people. After moving to Indiana, Mike and his family shared their time and love with the elderly at a local nursing home. Mike volunteers to DJ for events benefiting the Cancer Society, American Heart association and at his kid's schools.
My brother and his family would give the shirts off their back to help anyone.
Eight years ago, Mike's family was enjoying a good life. Conor was playing baseball (he can no longer play). Makenna was playing softball (she can no longer play). Mike was DJing, substitute teaching, painting, taking his kids to baseball games, basketball games, fishing, and his family spent a lot of time vacationing - even took a trip to Istanbul, Turkey in 2008. Early 2009, Mike's health took a huge hit. In 2011, Conor's health started a rapid decline. In 2012, Makenna started displaying symptoms. Within a couple years, Payton even started having some similar, yet far-less-severe symptoms.
Mike's family quickly went from having what he called "a dream life" to living "a medical nightmare".
If everyone clicks on the "What Can We Do?" link and does just a
little, we can help Mike to keep his house, feed his family, take care of his utility bills, and -- most importantly -- get Mike, Conor, & Makenna to the right doctors who can help them get answers so they can work toward getting their life back.
Thank you for visiting and thank you for your help!
