Welcome to Mike’s Place, dedicated to individuals and their families facing catastrophic life altering news: medical diagnosis, accidents and deaths. Asking the questions,
“Now what do I do?” “Who do I call?”
OUR GOAL is to connect individuals and families to resources that can address the immediately, critical needs they are facing. .
OUR MISSION is information and connection to the “Missing Pieces”.
Mike’s Place is a gathering place for information, a gathering place to share knowledge and make connections to information and resources to make our lives easier during the times of the unknown.
Mike’s Place is that journey traveled when you are knotted off your feet, when you hear the word CANCER or any CATASTROPHIC life altering news.
Mike’s Place was created in honor of my son, Mike Shannon, who passed away from cancer, my daughter Erin Shannon who died suddenly from a pulmonary embolism, and then my son Eric Shannon who was in a horrific accident and after 17 months of intensive rehabilitation services was able to return to a near normal quality of life. Mike’s illness, Erin’s sudden passing and the endless search for rehabilitation services for Eric, showed us the need for a place where people can get the information they need about the services available to help them when facing these catastrophic life altering events.
