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!

Almost 4 years

When I left New Jersey four years ago, about November 2008 I had no idea what was going to be in front of m. I fell, got back up, starved, to eating with kind strangers. People gave me their number and never answered. I was promised this and that from producers and directors, agents and whatnot... Labeled as the medical marijuana guy, used in documentaries, passed laws, NY Times, LA Times, other publications, being "googleable" ( i never imagined someone could google me!!!!), meeting all my idols and becoming their friend somehow through the universe. I received an email from children in Asia doing home work about my Washington post video. I'm sitting there eating dry total cereal going... Whaaa....

Life is beautiful, for me to be so connected to the world for not doing anything. I just wanted to live and love :)

I left with my dream of finding out my capabilities as a man. Not disabled, not different. But like everyone else... Slightly different. And also, words from one of my wisest friends and father figures; follow your heart and the rest will come. Meaning anything. I'm still not rich. But my life?!?!


PRICELESS!! :D

Everything happens for a reason!

Never never never give up. That "one day" is just waiting for u to not give up!

Love you
Mikey

I can't wait to wake up tomorrow (fingers crossed! ) and see what beauty awaits me :)

This morning I woke up to a text from an angel :) can't wait for tomorrow!

Keep dreaming everyone, it will come true :)
