 In May 2014, Michael was diagnosed with leukemia. He was just 6 years old. Michael began chemotherapy the very next day, and he has since endured multiple spinal taps and intravenous chemotherapy, as well as bone marrow biopsies, radiation and daily chemotherapy medicine. 


While his difficult journey has kept Michael sidelined from many of the things he loves over the last three and a half years, his friends have always been by his side. This is especially true during the Light the Night walks held each fall in Washington, D.C.


In 2014, Michael was so ill that he had to be pushed in a stroller for the entire walk. Last year, Michael vowed to complete the walk himself, but tired out at the very end. This is when his wonderful and supportive friends carried him across the finish line. 


Please join us as we walk again this year in honor of Michael. This year will be especially meaningful for our team, as we will celebrate the end of Michael’s 185 weeks of treatment. 


At the time of the walk, Michael will have mere weeks left of treatment. 


Help us walk for a cure, Help us Walk with MEE.

Check out the socks that Michael designed with the Resilience Project! Featuring the initials of Michael’s closest friends, Michael’s socks come in both a crew length casual sock as well as an athletic baseball sock fit for the diamond. A portion of proceeds from every pair of socks will be donated directly to Walk with MEE!
