Our family’s journey with Kevin has led us to some incredible people, and incredible stories.
We thought you might be interested in this one.
Our friend Mike Possenti is a great supporter of Kevin’s, and fellow Salesianum alum,–he reached out a few days ago to confirm that he is donating golf towels to our September 21 golf tournament. He didn’t mention the health and financial crises he is facing.
Here’s his story:
Mike was diagnosed with diabetes at age 11. In November of 2011, Mike broke his foot, marking the beginning of his health problems. Soon after, his kidneys began to fail and he was on dialysis 4 days a week. He lost his right leg in August of 2012 due to the disease.
In October 2013, Mike had a kidney transplant. But the following July, Mike’s left leg was amputated; he now needs another prosthetic. Mike is a single dad with two great kids and his health care costs are mounting.
