My Journey

I'm not Handicapped, I'm Handicapable.
(and no i didnt get that from due date lol)

I left home and drove from nj to california in search of an independent life and safe access to my medicine* so i can live. It's been an interesting journey, lots of ups, lots of downs, and even though I am now weaker than ever...nothing will ever stop me from living my dream, regardless of how long I get to live.

Life is too precious and short to waste time. And I'm Ready.

The three videos below are before and after i left nj, an interview with the Washington Post during my road trip, some audition, and one other one hahaha idk i didnt set up the web site, im kinda lost there :P below that are blog entries! thank you!

Feel free to contact me at all times: mike@mikeywheels.com


Help to save Mikey's life

As you know, Mikey has always been able to smile through the pain, no matter what, until recently. The pain in his stomach is now worse than ever and has led to an inability to eat, causing rapid weight loss. At 6'1", he's a meager 75 lbs and dropping fast. It's getting more difficult for Mikey to smile through the pain and fear.

One of the only places where Mikey can get help is the MAYO clinic in Minnesota. There, a team of specialized doctors will work together to figure out how his illnesses affect each other and can be treated to restore health and balance to his body so he can keep living his incredible life.

All of this obviously comes with a large amount of costs, which can only be covered with the help and donations of as many people as possible – even if it's just a dollar. Please click on one of the two following links to access the crowd funding campaigns that will help Mikey get better. Thank you!

The day before Thanksgiving was a pretty busy day for me, getting setup with the website, blogging, etc., to being able to spread my dream. I'm really excited to finally spread the love, and now I'm totally looking forward to working with blogs and video updates on youtube. I have the Washington Post interview on the 4th or 5th of December. Moral of the story, life couldnt get any better in for one day, hour, minute, second, or even a millisecond Right now I got my girl tashia boo dictating my blog because A। I'm new to the game, and B. its getting to use my fingers for typing, one small helping hand from a friend is underscribable for me to explain how much it means to me in my life. Just to help me be a little more normal, and not have to be limited by my DNA and its inperfections/perfections. Its 5:10, still up waiting to take my sleeping pills to get into affect. Its the morning/day of thanksgiving, so I hope everyone spreads as much love as possible within your homes. My good friend Travis Gant was kind enough to spend the day with me to help me setup the website and blogging, yet again another example how I'm able to have great friends that want to help out just to see me achieve my dream just before I go, and that alone means more to me in any second of the world
I love you all.
Sweet dreams

Hey man - It's Anthony (antonio) from B&H - I gotta say man, meeting you earlier today has had a wonderful effect in my life so quickly. You ended up being one of those special/inspirational people that I'm meeting in my lifetime.

You helped me come to a realization on certain things goin on with me in my own life right now and you've already helped me turn around and have a different outlook on my life and particular thing's I'm dealing with at the moment and have been dealing with for quite some time.

I wish nothing but the best outcome for you during your journey. I'll be checking your updates and hope to keep in good contact with you from time to time when you can.

It really didn't take long to know that you are one of the most interesting people I have ever met in my life. I wish I had you as a friend of mine growing up. I hope I can call you friend because you already feel like one to me.

I hope you're enjoying and getting accustomed to all the stuff you bought earlier haha - enjoy it to the fullest man :) If you have any questions or anything about that camcorder or anything else, feel free to ask man!

Starting tomorrow, I'll be spreading the love more often than I have in the past... - have a good night bro.
