The Magic of Michael Foundaton
Our Story: In 1992, our two sons, “Little John” and Michael, were both diagnosed with a rare, neurological disease called adrenoleukodystrophy (ALD). Only 11 months after the diagnosis, we lost “Little John” at the age of eight. Michael survived a bone marrow transplant that slowed the rapid progression of the disease, but still suffered debilitating seizures throughout the rest of his life.
Despite his setbacks, Michael had a lively spirit, and loved nothing more than to be out on the baseball field with his father John, who was a major league baseball umpire for many years. He took every opportunity he could to join his dad at work.
Soon Michael began helping in the dugouts, making friends with the players and serving as a bat boy. Baseball was his greatest passion in life. In April of 2014, we lost Michael after 27 beautiful years with him. In his loving memory, we created the Magic of Michael Foundation.
Our Mission: Through our many hardships, our community never failed to band together and help us in our time of need. We wanted to be able to give back to the community while creating something meaningful to keep Michael’s memory alive.
The Magic of Michael Foundations aims to keep children and their families get any resources they may need, from accessibility ramps to wheel chairs to service animals Our mission is to inspire, empower and provide hope for families enduring the curveballs of life.
