Born with liver disease, Mike barely survived childhood, when at the age of 13 he received his donor liver. Within three weeks, he was back at school running track and playing baseball. He also loved football, lifting weights, riding motorcycles, and Ohio State University where he eventually attended. But just six days before graduation from OSU, Mike was killed in a tragic motorcycle accident. He donated his heart, lungs, corneas, skin, tendons, ligaments, and long bones. His mom, Lynda, shares "I thank God everyday for loaning him to me for 22 years. He taught me so many lessons. I try to live my life as he did. Passionate. Selfless. And with no regrets".
