The day I got to fish with Michael, at 9 years old he is the toughest person I know. Mikey is fighting a battle with cancer and is in the middle of his treatments, he wasn’t feeling the best but that wasn’t going to stop him fishing with me for a few hours and catching as many Bass as he could and he did just that!
He has a passion for fishing and when I heard his story we were packed up and driving to Arkansas to get him out on the water. To see fishing put a smile on his face was beyond words for me, It was a day I’ll never ever forget.
I can only hope I’m half as strong as Mikey one day. Mikey and his family need help to fight this fight and if you would like to donate please click this link https://www.gofundme.com/loveformickey
Any help will make a huge difference!
Keep an eye on Bassmaster.com for his full story. I’m going to do all I can to help more, I can’t wait to fish with you again mate when your feeling better.
