Meet Michael!

Meet Michael, the cool dude! He is a friendly 10-year-old boy who defies the difficulties of cerebral palsy. Michael’s arms and legs are weakened but his inner strength endures like iron. He focuses some of that strength in sports.

This all-American boy plays baseball in the Buddy Ball League. Buddy Ball helps Michael build self-esteem and teamwork skills. He also enjoys watching baseball and his favorite team is the Tampa Bay Rays! Michael’s interest in sports also includes football; especially the Florida State Seminoles. This big sports fan has a huge appetite for an American classic, the juicy cheeseburger. Yummy! There is word on the street that Michael is also quite the ladies’ man.

Michael needs an elevated wheelchair to be more independent and mobile.
