Join us in raising money for Garza! $6 donations to honor Garza's 6 Months of Strength. Help him pay for his medical bills!

"I believe the times that we stumble in life are the times we really realize how much support we have in our friends and loved ones." -Michael Jay Garza, 2009

Six months ago, on August 17th 2011, Michael was in a car accident in Santa Cruz CA and was air-lifted to Stanford Medical Hospital. He endured numerous painful and dangerous surgeries and was put into a medically induced coma to save his life. The following months were filled with anxiety and fear that Michael wouldn't wake up, but he is a fighter and everyday he showed progress of coming back to us. There wasn't a magic moment when he suddenly awoke, like in the movies, but it was a slow and steady...transforming our fear to hope. He has been diagnosed with Traumatic Brain Injury and the amazing doctors at Stanford began rehab to help his brain relearn. Michael is doing so well that in the beginning of the new year he was moved up to Washington to a special rehabilitation clinic! We have high hopes that Michael will continue to heal, learn and recover.

We humbly ask you to consider donating to help Mike continue on his path of healing. He is a fighter, and he is not giving up. He needs our emotional and financial support to help him get through this. Thank you!
