This fundraiser is dedicated to helping my dear friend and colleague, Mike Bloomer.
We all know Mike as a loving husband, father of two, man of God, incredibly talented musician, teacher and friend. Mike’s world changed recently when he began having strange symptoms. An MRI showed that he had developed Level 4 Glioblasomas brain cancer. It has come as a shock to those near and dear to him. He has already undergone brain surgery to remove most of the tumor and has now started an aggressive chemo and radiation plan,thereby with positive results. Mike is showing incredible strength and courage through this, and even with this hardship he continues to remain positive, laugh and find grace in all of the blessings he has in his life. He told me recently that he has never been so thankful for the people in his life and what he has been given, including his amazing and beautiful wife and children. Mike truly is one of the most wonderful people I have ever known.
My goals, with this compassionate crowdfunding, are to raise funds for Mike and his family while he is unemployed and fighting cancer. It is also to bring the community together for him and his family, and surround him with prayer, love and support. Lastly, it is to bring awareness of this disease to the public, as well as, Mike's friends and colleagues of his situation. It is with great hope that this concert will be exciting for everyone and it will greatly support Mike and his family.
Thank you for your consideration, kindness and generosity!
