The Story

Wednesday, May 20, 2015 after visiting the doctor for a migraine, Mike learned that he has a glioblastoma, a rare and highly aggressive form of cancer.  Mike was rushed into emergency surgery, the doctors did everything they could surgically, but his primary tumor is inoperable.  Mike has undergone radiation, and while involved in a clinical trial at Fred Hutch/UW underwent a bone marrow transplant and chemotherapy.  He is now looking into additional therapies. This process is mentally, physically, and emotionally grueling, but this has not stopped Mike’s unconquerable spirit and positive outlook.

If you worked with Mike on Shadow of Mordor, Gears of War I and II, Fable, Media Center, Zune, Conker, or Perfect Dark Zero you have experienced his positive energy, passion, and unfailing support.  Mike has always been the first to volunteer, getting in earliest in the day and the last to leave at night.  You know that he’s always been there when you needed him.

Now Mike needs you.

Mike and April have three beautiful children, each amazing in their own way, smart, talented, and compassionate.   Mike needs to know that his family will be ok, and that you stand beside him in this fight.  Your donation will help cover the medical expenses and securing the future for Mike’s children.

Mike's friends helped him make his dream a reality and now they're sharing it with the world. An excerpt of the story:

"When Mike was diagnosed with cancer in May 2015, one of his goals was to get this album finished and heard. He knew that he didn't have much time, so he passed the baton to producer/multi-instrumentalist/genius Nathan Grigg, who took the songs we recorded in Mike's basement in 2008 and turned Mike's vision into reality (so Mike could focus on time with his family and trying every treatment available to him).

Dayna Smith was enlisted to contribute backing vocals. One of the most beautiful moments of this album comes when Mike's daughter Bridget, who was just a rug-rat when these songs were first born, adds her voice in harmony with her father. Touching, haunting, and beautiful."

All proceeds from the album will be going to Mike's family.
