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:

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!

We each have the choice to create our own peace or not.
I really wanted to hear more about the 9th grader in Taiwan, and the home work they had about you in school, that is so inspiring!
You touch hearts by just being you!
I am so very proud of you.
I would give anything to have a hug right now!!!
Love you soooooooooooo much.

Dear Mike:
I saw the article in the Bergen Record today and that lead me to check out your blog. What an incredible inspiration you are! Wow. I called your Mom to vice my aprobations for both of you and your incredible journey that you are now on.
Our three children live in San Francisco. I'm going to send them your blog address and ask them if they might help you to make a visit to their places of employment. Anne works for Microsoft. Mark works for You Tube,and Brian works for Google. Its a couple of hours drive but I'll see what we can do to support you for the visit. I'm sure you will be an inspiration for everyone you'll have the opportunity to meet.
I love the music you choose to play in the backgrounds of your posts.
One Love,

Peter J. Sullivan
