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 have been very un inspired by myself lately. and its strange because i have recieved so much love and compliments of me being inspiring for others, and i am not even inspired by myself. it makes going on youtube and vlogging very hard, i watch videos of my life a year ago when times were different, and even tho i had less, i was happier. there are a lot of family and financial issues behind a lot of it. i will get into it in a video, i just have had a rough few months and a revelation last night. i will be the mikeywheels i was....whatever that was hahaha

im just trying to survive. l.i.v.e.

but i am also gonna tear the roof off, just wait. a few nights of rest after my revelation and things will start rollin :)

Just dropping a note to let you know we are thinking of you. Here are ways to get inspired...
1. Play with the rubber ball with the fish in it.
2. Watch the movies The Incredibles...they seemed to conquer anything and everything.
3. Sing a song in your undies!
4. Encourage someone else
5. Eat CHOCOLATE!
