Mike, I am so sorry to hear about what happened. Have faith and hope and things will fall into place. Which hope we have as an anchor of the soul. As an anchor holds the ship when the storms are raging, so this hope holds the soul steadfast. -Hebrews 6:19

Hi Mike - I read your story in the Inquirer today, and you inspire me. I've recently been diagnosed with breast cancer and as I begin the journey to recovery I will think of you and be lifted by your strength and determination.

Don't lose you wonderful spirit and remember there is a plan for everyone and some thign good will come out of this tragedy.

hi Mike just read your story in the July 27th Philadelphia Inquirer and was sad to hear what happened to you that night. It's so good to see that you have survived a terrible accident. I will be donating money to you to help you walk again. God Bless you and your family what a great guy you are!!!!!!!!!!!!
Lou Ferere [2009-07-27 00:00:00]
Just read your story in today's paper. I hope after reading the article a lot of people will come to your aid just like you did for that young woman you were helping. It shows what a good person you are. I will be sending you a check tonight. Good luck to you and i hope you keep your spirit up from all the new friends you have.
Philip Steven Haberman [2009-07-27 00:00:00]
Dear Mike: I read in Today's Philadelphia. Inquirer of your tragic accident while being a good samaritan. It appears to me that this was not your first, and probably won't be your last mitzvah. I pray that your recovery is miraculous and that you do get the opportunity to dance again. May the pain you experience be masked by the joy that you have brought to this world. L'chaim, Phil Haberman
Virginia [2009-07-27 00:00:00]
Hi Mike! I read your story today and I am so impressed with your positive attitude and determination to dance. America needs good men like you for our country. We will be lucky to get you as a citizen. Maybe we can start a petition to give to President Obama to make you a citizen sooner! Keep your dream of dancing alive. Best wishes to you and your wonderful parents. God Bless you.

Hello Mike, I gave birth to my daughter Audrey on May 22, 2009. I asked for my family to buy a newspaper so that I can cut out interesting articles from the day she was born. It happened to be that your add was placed during that week. After reading your story I was very touched and was very sad that such bad luck had to happen to such a nice person. I guess it was destiny for me to read your story. I am also making a donation and really hope you raise enough for your expenses. Please keep us posted and let me know if I can help any other way. Vicky, Serge and Little Audrey
Cynthia Miller [2009-06-22 00:00:00]

Maria Cavaiani [2009-06-10 00:00:00]
I'm so sorry to hear about what has happened. I cannot make a dollar donation, but I will pray for all of the families that have been effected by this tragedy. You are all with us in our hearts.
Alexina Smythe [2009-06-09 00:00:00]
I heard Mike's story and am so sad for him. I'll try to be at any fundraisers. It was brave and kind to stop to help a woman alone at night on a freeway. I'm wondering: does Mike have health insurance that will help with the bills or do you need to raise funds to cover everything? Also what happens to the driver who hit him? Will he or his insurance pay? I know that even good insurance won't cover all payments. I'm just wondering how much fundraising you need to do.
Katie Macfarland [2009-06-08 00:00:00]
I am so sorry Mike
Angelique Jacquinto [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
My prayers are with you this is such a sad story. People just don't think to help people anymore and you were kind enough to help i hope others will be kkind enough to help you.
Maria [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
Tony, we still haven't raised enough for even half a leg, so any help would be greatly appreciated! Thank you very much!
Maria Breyman [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
Tony, We raised $3190 at the last fundraiser at Chill Bar and Grill. Just to get an idea of the cost of prosthetics: One version, called the C-Leg, made by German company Otto Bock, came on the market in 1999. Those who wear it praise its design - after they get past the hefty $40,000 price tag. (The components for a basic above-the-knee prosthetic leg cost about $2,000, but prosthetists' fees can bring the total closer to between $10,000 and $15,000. A top-of-the-line mechanical prosthesis for an above-the-knee amputee typically costs about $18,000.) (Evan Ratliff) Michael needs prothsetics for both legs and both are amputated above the knee. If you think you could be of any help, please give me a call at 215-869-6864 and I could discuss it with you further. Thank you very much for your desire to help, Tony, it is greatly appreciated!
Rose [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
Mike, It is nice to know there are still good people like yourself around. My dad lost one of his legs in an accident when he was in his 20's and he went on to college and medical school to become a great doctor. Your positive attitude makes all the difference. All the best to you and your family!
The Venble-Nappen Family [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
Mike, Your story touched us when we saw it last night. Our prayers are with you.
Tony Beyer [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
Hi Maria, How much is one leg? I think I can be of some help.. btw: Why not post a daily total of what you raised so far and what you goal is on your site. It will help drive the rate of donation. :) Tony
Tony Beyer [2009-06-04 00:00:00]
Hello Friends of Mike, How much has been raised so far? I would like to help. Peace, Tony Beyer

Mishka, from the house parties to a hospital bed, you remain the same person I am lucky enough to get to know - kind, funny, hearty and absolutely loveable. Standing or sitting, you are still the best companion for all the good things that are ahead for you. Hardship and pain, no matter how intense, eventually go away - and I'm speaking from personal experience. What remains is family, friends, loved ones who want to be around you and take care of you same way you always took care of them. Stay strong, tell Lorka not to boss you around :o))) and I hope to see you again very soon. You are such a motik!
Maria Breyman [2009-05-27 00:00:00]
Dora, In response to your question about the fundraiser. The only expense that we will need to take care of is paying for the two bouncers and a DJ, which all together will be about $300 and will most likely be covered by the usual visitors of that venue, as it does every usual Friday. The rest of the money raised through the cover charge, lottery, and donations will go straight to Misha's family, which I highly hope will be present at the event. Sincerely, Maria.
Dora Ilyasova [2009-05-24 00:00:00]
Sorry, I did not understand the meaning of these messages. My question was to those who organized the fundraiser.
Dora Ilyasova [2009-05-24 00:00:00]
What are the proportions that go from donations to cover the fundraiser expenses and to cover medical bills/rehabilitation?
Alla Bespalov [2009-05-19 00:00:00]
Dear Misha, I'm so sorry to have heard about what happened and I'm thankful that you are alive. You are one of those rare people that would help anyone in need and we need more of you in the world. Doctors do amazing things with medicine these days and you have a full life ahead of you. Look at this runner that is competing in a race: You can do anything you put your mind to, just continue being the great person that you are. I wish you strength, courage and a fast recovery. Don't lose hope and be strong. Alla
Kira and Yevgeniy Shcherbakov [2009-05-15 00:00:00]
Mike, We are so sorry for what happened. We hope that you get the best possible medical treatment and that the best results will be acheived. You are a good person for stopping and helping the girl and good deeds do not go unrewarded. Stay strong. We will think about you and send our best thoughts. Kira and Jenia

Hi Michael. I am in shock to hear what happened to you. I never had a chance to meet you, but just by corresponding with you about my cousin in Russia Viktoria I felt you are the greatest person. I hope you will be strong enough to make a fast recovery. You just have to. I lost my son 13 years ago. Somebody gun shot him. He was 19 years old. I can't get him back, but you are here. You just have to make it. I am sure everybody love you and whant you to get well ASAP. You are a very strong young men. You can do it. Best regards, Ada.

Tetyana [2009-05-08 00:00:00]
Миша, мне до глубины души жаль, что с Вами случилось это несчастье. Дай Вам Бог мужество и силы пережить это и научиться жить по-новому. Вы очень добрый человек. Жалко, что вы пострадали именно из-за того, что Вы не черствый человек. Вы гораздо лучше многих из нас. Я надеюсь, что чудо произойдет и Вы найдете заслуженное счастье. Жизнь продолжается. Такие люди как Вы делают наш мир добрее и лучше. Я люблю Вас .
