I thought I was done posting for Mighty MikeyD and had done my last post. As I said before I do not want to bore anyone.
I will give a quick update on MikeyD at the end of this post. This post is more about the MikeyD Heart screening for the Kids. As I promised before that when MikeyD was recovering and doing better Our family would pay it forward to help save the lives of other Children. We are doing that every day now and will continue to do it forever through the MikeyD Foundation that we set up. To date we have saved 11 Lives that we know of and hopefully more that we do not know of. Some have been as far away as Dallas Texas as a matter of fact we had 2 kids on the same team in Dallas that were screened and found a problem. One we found out about just the other night Moya met a friend in Middletown who’s kids went to school with our kids they have 3 kids and had all three screened and one had a heart condition that was number 11. We are having the Heart screening that we had to postpone last time due to the overwhelming response with the help of the Dolan family on Saturday September 27th at St. Mary’s Mater Dei High School Gym. We had the same overwhelming response this time but we were ready for it as far as Medical staff.
Right now we have 500 Kids signed up. Do you believe 500 kids on a Saturday coming to get a Heart screening from the best Children’s Hospital in the country ? I think Mighty Mikeyd is doing his job in spreading the word and saving kids’ lives.
People are listening and becoming aware of this growing problem. Middletown football even canceled a practice due to the heat.
We have one small problem we need a lot of Volunteers we will have over 1000 people coming through for the day.
We still need more Nurses for taking Height, Weight and blood pressure. We could use EKG and Echo techs. While the kids are in line for screenings we will be teaching them how to use an AED and how to do CPR so we still need more volunteers who can demonstrate CPR.
We need to go to CHOP on Friday night load a truck with medical equipment and drive it to Mater Dei that night.
We need help to unload that truck on Saturday morning.
We will need help to load that truck up on Saturday afternoon and have someone bring it back to CHOP Saturday or Sunday.
We will need people to help with the registration table the Consent table and the sign out table. We will need help with the foot traffic and directing people where to go next.
So it is not just medical people that we need. Please forward this link to the Mighty MikeyD site to as many people as you can to see if we can get some help for this great cause saving Children’s Lives !

Quick update on Mighty MikeyD the fighter he is transitioning from the Children’s Specialized Hospital to Bayshore Middle school. That boy never ever gives up he keeps on doing what they said could not be done. I spoke with one of his Physical therapist the other day and she said I know this may not have been the path that he chose but you should be very proud of him he has come a long way and she has never met anyone with that kind of drive he keeps pushing himself while others sit around and say they had enough. He still battles every day with memory and learning disabilities but he battles .We believe in the Miracle we all witnessed with all your prayers and support from a great community.
We Believe in Miracles !!!
Please keep praying for MikeyD’ Recovery !!!
