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!

Mike & Mat ~ We met you at Crossgates Mall when you were buying your camera. I am Jaliek's grandmother and enjoyed meeting you, talking with you and hugging you as you continued on your journey across the country. We met many people while at the mall for Jaliek (Rainwalker) and will always remember our uplifting few minutes with you. Enjoy the byways and people along the way. Spread your message, you two are wonderful.

Hey Mike, I have received many emails and here is just one for you and Lisa that I am posting on behalf of a friend.
"A family to be thankful for! Congratulations on having raised such beautiful children who are enablers and good spirited people rising above the cruelties of fate to make a brighter life for all who know them."

Hello God King,
It was awesome to see you yesterday before your amazing journey starts. It made me think of the first time i met you, it was at someone's party and you were driving recklessly fast(at least to me) on your wheel chair. I remember thinking, who is that guy messing around on the electric wheelchair and why doesnt he give it back to the person that owns it? It's crazy to think of all the cool times we've had and certainly more are to come in a more scenic and warm setting. Good luck in your travels and I'll be sure to bother you with some elton john lyrics or a quote from 300...
