This is Mike Vaughan. He’s a Freshman in College, vastly talented musician, friend, and loved one to pretty much everyone he meets. He’s one of the most responsible and honest people I’ve ever met. He only had vision in one eye (due to an accident when he was younger), until just recently when the retina in his functioning eye detached itself in his first semester of college. He is currently unable to see. His family has held benefits throughout his home community to help cover the extensive medical costs as he undergoes several surgeries to help restore his sight, but it’s still not been enough.
In addition, Mike’s family has set up an online donation link for his surgeries as well. That can be found *HERE*. Please, guys, donations and reblogs would be greatly appreciated, not only by the friends who are closest to him, but also his family. Try to imagine losing your sight one eye at a time. It broke my heart when heard about it. He was the one who lead and taught my section in marching band when we was in high school. These are some of the things being said about him by the community:
Please take a moment to send positive thoughts and prayers for him and his family. Thank you guys so much for your help!
