The Story

Hello, friends and family! Michael has end-stage liver disease with associated complications and is unable to work. He needs your help, however big or small, to help with expenses until his disability claim is approved.

His illness started in November 2017. He tried to work but with so many debilitating symptoms, he just did not have the energy or stamina to do his job and in December 2017 he had to stay home.

Mike has been hospitalized numerous times in the past few months. He gets stabilized in the hospital and is discharged, only to become very ill again and he gets re-admitted.

Those who know Mike appreciate his funny personality, quick wit and the love he has for the dogs that he and his wife, Kellie, take care of. Fred, the Husky/Dachshund mix, will sit up and "pray" when he begs for food, which Mike taught him to do. 

Mike, Kellie and their son, Nick, appreciate all you can do for them, which includes praying and thinking of them. Not being able to work is hard on Mike and he'd much rather be healthy and making a living, but with end-stage liver disease he just can't.

Thank you for reading this and taking the time to think about Mike and his family. Bless you.

This update comes to you from Michael:  All the help is greatly appreciated. I have not improved, feeling worse sometimes. Waiting for another doctor so I can get on the transplant list. I'm having kidney trouble as well so we have to test that again. Slowly it feels like all my organs are failing. Other than that I am living the dream.

This update is from Jessica Priebe, Mike's younger sister: 

When Angela and I were little. we got a chalkboard one Christmas and I remember drawing on it and spelling stuff, writing letters, stuff like that.  Michael taught Angela and I how to spell "poop" and I think we thought it was hilarious and wrote it on a bunch of stuff.  haha!  I also remember him teaching me how to draw block letters in the first grade. :)
