Mike’s Place is for that moment when you are knocked off your feet, when you hear the word CANCER or TERMINAL or any CATASTROPHIC
life-altering, health related news.
Mike’s Place is that place of support and renewed energy through knowledge and sharing.
A PLACE OF LIVING, NOT JUST SURVIVING.
OUR GOAL is to connect individuals and their families to resources that can address their immediate needs by establishing a pool of Healthcare Concierges that will assist them by sharing experiences and resources on this frequently complex journey through uncharted territories.
OUR MISSION is to create a gathering place for sharing knowledge and making connections to information and resources that may assist people in understanding their journey, making decisions, and finding ways to make their lives easier during times of the unknown, to help them find their “Missing Pieces”.
Watch for and Participate in our IDEA NIGHTS online events!
Mike’s Place exists 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 experienced a horrific accident. The blessing is, Eric was able after 17 months of intensive rehabilitation services to return to a near normal quality of life.
However, Mike’s illness, Erin’s sudden passing, and the endless search for rehabilitation services for Eric, and now in 2020 where everyone is living through the Covid-19 Pandemic, 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.
