At the young age of five years old, Mikey was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy. He knew from then on that his life would be shorter and more difficult than most.

But what may have depressed others only motivated Mikey to live everyday to the fullest.

As a 29 year old man, Mikey has traveled the world, given countless motivational speeches, and even holds the world record for the highest skydiving jump performed by a disabled person.
