In September 2001, at the age of 18, Mike’s life changed forever. He contracted one of the deadliest diseases on the planet. A lethal, fast acting, deadly infection, that left him with horrific internal and external injuries, including multiple amputations.
Mike’s chances of survival were as little as 5%. His family were told to say goodbye on more than one occasion as he fought for his life. He spent the next 6 months in hospital where he was given the sobering news that it could take years to achieve even the most basic tasks.
Mike’s journey back to health was aided by a positive outlook, an adaptive mindset and a conscious decision to lean into, and embrace uncertainty. Mike has a background in the Health Industry, he’s a qualified Counsellor, is a highly skilled communicator and a passionate supporter and advocate of the amputee community through his work with Limbs 4 Life.
