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!

I am so sorry my bloggs have not been exactly yo to date, lots has been happening in the last week, ive been planting my roots and trying to figure out how to survive solo in cali, a great friend wrote an article for a newspaper, his words are more than appreciated. For anyone who would like to read it, its gonna be at this address:

The Mikey Wheels Article Written By Tom Clancey


He is an amazing guitarist, great person, and a great friend. and Im very lucky to have become friends with him through life's beautiful grapevine. So thank you Tom Clancey once more for being such a great guy. Much love my man, we'll Jam hopefully sooner than later!!

I'll be updating more soon, things have been kinda crazy with getting situated, i have some beautiful footage from new mexico and my next entry will hopefully be from my very own first place ever!! my social security will barely cover the rent, but I can get food stamps thanks to the California State Health insurance!! i think... so i think between social security and food stamps, i might be stayin alive, just like the Bee-Gee's minus the hair.... Then come the issue of medication (not exactlty covered by any health insurance) which is killer expensive, and cell phone (life line...literally) and all other life expenses (they never end hahaha). That's the hardest part about being disabled, affording all the medication and equipment, in my opinion at least. It seems that anything thats needed for health, is 10x the price, not so convenient when ya need those things to live haha ce la vie, thats business for you. If they need it, make it crazy expensive so they can't afford to have it. I get why, its just unfortunate. BUT you can't change anything or anyone... all you can do is accept and adapt.

Thank you all for you continual support and for keeping up. I try my hardest to get on as much as i can and update the site. Things will get a little easier when i actually move in and have less chaos running my life hahaha thank you for your patience and Love, i dont take it for granted.

And Thank you John Arrowsmith, he got the article online somehow, im no good with any of that stuff haha, he is another Great Man im fortunate to have in my life. He is the man who put together the First video on the site out of the kindess of his Heart. Thanks John, your kindness to me for all these months means so much to me, you have helped me so much to help me live my dream. I can't thank you enough.


Much love
Mikey
