Meet: Mike

We were privileged to welcome Mike into the Weish4Ever Family as a part of the Chicago White Sox "Ultimate Wish" surprise in 2019 for his family.

More About Mike's Story

Mike epitomized hope and selflessness.  At the time of our initial introduction, Mike did not know we were there for him.  After quickly hearing what we do, he handed us his business card and asked how he could support the mission. Moments later, we surprised Mike with a gift on field before the game. This entire day was for Mike - yet what he cared about was how he could help others. That is the kind of guy Mike was.

"It is scary but I just continue the fight. I have way too much to lose...my family, my friends, my coworkers...they rely on me and I want to be there for them. Every day I live for them and I'm not going to stop."

Mike's Story Lives On

On Friday April 2nd, we lost a part of our Weish4Ever Family. Mike passed after his hard fought battle with brain cancer. Mike was a beloved husband, father, son, brother, and dear friend to all who crossed his path. The video above captures his pure and genuine character, and highlights so many of the reasons he will be dearly missed. Please take a moment to watch and to send your love and prayers to an incredible man and his amazing family.
