Gary Michael is a 49 year old, hardworking, Christian, family man who is the life of the party and quite the dancer. He has worked in facility maintenance for the past 15+ years, and married the love of his life Suranna Wallace Michael five (5) years ago. He is the father of Katey (23), Dylan (21) and step-father of Kara (29), Sean (24), Evan (21), Brea (16) and grandfather of Rayden (8), Cameron (6), Liam (5), Owen (3), Amelia (2), Xzavior (5 weeks), Isaac (3) and Noah (1).
On Saturday October, 21st our brother, friend, and neighbor Gary fell 30 feet out of a tree. He landed on his feet and broke multiple vertebrae in his back. He has undergone two (2) surgeries to remove bone fragments around his spinal cord and to fuse his spine.
Gary’s prognosis is bleak for at least the next 6 months; he does have intermittent feeling in his legs, but we are uncertain about his ability to walk. Our prayer is that he will be able to walk again. He has a long difficult road to recovery, yet his concern is not of his own health but of his family’s well-being and his livelihood. We do know he will be in a back brace for a minimum of six (6) months and the dance floor is months possibly years away.
We are asking for your prayers and your generosity. No matter the amount, we graciously accept any help you can provide to Gary and his family. The money raised will go directly to his family for help with medical and all other bills.
Praying this fool will be back on the dance floor embarrassing his family soon. Praying for a speedy recovery and extra blessings for him and his loved ones. #PrayForGaryMichael
