He said, "It is amazing how many people I can get to share this photo of bacon, but I can't get to donate $1 to help save someone's life. I NEED YOUR HELP. Share this photo and this post and help me help Mike please".
So then George, the Civilized Caveman, came across Mike's story. He does not know Mike. I do not know Mike. Neither one of us have anything to gain from sharing his story other than knowing that we did a small part to helping him reach his goal. But George took it a step further. He set up part of his website to spread awareness about Mike's condition to help him raise money. It was going to be a surprise that George handed over to him at the end, but by accident Mike found out. (You can tell he feels horrible for ruining the surprise, which he shouldn't. Imagine someone feeling so bad for ruining a stranger's surprise to help them save their life. What a sweetie!)
Anyway, I saw George's post on Facebook and followed the link to listen to Mike's latest vlog. There are 6 total, I think. It's about 13 minutes long, but it was such a touching video, and I couldn't help but feel the need to donate and share his story. I don't think I'll need to convince you, just take a minute to listen to what he has to say and then decide if you want to help:
