Help me save my life
Link for donations: indiegogo: http://igg.me/at/mikeoliveri/x/3791311 Go fund me: http://www.gofundme.com/3tzfo4 Hello and welcome one and all! Whether you know him personally or through the internet, we have all been touched at some point by the inspirational Mikey Oliveri - an extraordinary guy who doesn't let any physical limitations keep him from living and experiencing life to the fullest. Mikey was born with the genetic disease Muscular Dystrophy and, in the last 15 years, has developed a slew of very painful stomach issues that have been getting progressively worse. Mikey has always been able to smile through the pain, no matter what, until recently. The pain in his stomach is now worse than ever and has led to an inability to eat, causing rapid weight loss. At 6'1", he's a meager 75 lbs and dropping fast. It's getting more difficult for Mikey to smile through the pain and fear - and more difficult to watch him try. We want to help get him to the MAYO clinic in Minnesota. There, a team of specialized doctors will work together to figure out how his illnesses affect each other and can be treated to restore health and balance to his body so he can keep living his incredible life. We want to do everything possible to help him to get to that clinic as soon as possible. We need all the help he can get and any help is beneficial - even if it's just a dollar. And If you can't help financially, we would really appreciate if you could share this page with your friends through social networking. The more people who see this, the more chances we get to raise our goal for our amazing friend! For more information on muscular dystrophy, click here: www.mda.org For more information on the MAYO clinic, click here: www.mayoclinic.org/rochester/ Thank you in advance for anything you can do. May your life always grace you and your loved ones with health, peace and happiness.

How I successfully got off 12 mg of Xanax and Klonopin a day
My name is Mike Oliveri, Im 32 and have muscular dystrophy and I've been in a wheelchair for 14 years!. About two and a half years ago, during my T.P.N. treatment , I decided to clean up my mind body soul by getting off all benzodiazepines that i had been taking for about 12 years. In this video I talk about my experience with Xanax and Klonopin, and how I became benzo free! We never know how strong we are until we test and push ourselves past what we think we can handle, the truth is, we can do anything we want to do. we are powerful and unstoppable. I am hoping to empower anyone who is considering detoxing and freeing their lives from the grasps of this terrible drug! Stay awesome and please thumbs up and subscribe if this resonated with you! Much love mikey

Hey Richard, It's Mikey
I am 29 now, muscular dystrophy master, and the worlds biggest dreamer!! I moved here in 2008 and have been living the most i can!! I live off donations and my love for life!! I am 78 lbs and 6'2"! Buuut that doesn't stop me from much :) Richard Branson has always been my biggest inspiration! My dream to go to space has always been there! I met editor and filmaker Paul Germain when I drove here from NJ. During the first day of filming the documentary I talked about how I would love to meet Richard Branson and go to space. Then we decided to make a video to try and chase the dream. This is my message to Richard! Thanks to my friends on FaceBook, Twitter, my friend Paris Hilton, Pamela Anderson and so many countless others, Richard received the message, AND HAS RESPONDED! :) I will be meeting with Richard and the Virgin Galactic team in the Mojave desert in September! Thank you so much Richard!!!!! You are my hero!!!

Chase your dreams!
For a few years now I have not paid any attention to my biggest passion in life, which is cars! They don't call me mikeywheels for no reason! I drove to Cali from NJ in 2008, after a few years the equipment I had in my van started to fail. So I put down my keys, In an attempt to be safe. However years later my life feels empty, I have great friends and good fun, but I have been ignoring my only true passion. NO MORE. I will not stop until I am behind the wheel again! Safely is of course priority, but I am confident I can achieve that while perusing my passion! It feels so amazing to have the right priority back in my life. Someone once told me I should only do what gives me tingles. I recently went for a ride in a Lamborghini, and boy oh boy did it give me tingles! I knew what was missing in my life, motors, and gasoline!!! I have this strange feeling that everything else in my life will follow now that I'm on the right path. I'm SO excited!! With high hopes and a clear mind, I am once again unstoppable, no longer will I ignore my dreams, now I'm back to chasing them! Thanks for watchdog! Stay tuned for updates on my journey! Much love Mikey

The POV of a disabled person in bed
Some Late-night thoughts After a long night of being sick with stomach problems. I wanted to share the perspective of somebody who doesn't get to leave the bedroom much Do to physical and mental ability. I'm lucky I get to do as much as I do. In no way is this a sympathy card. I just like sharing things sometimes I don't think people know. And can help them understand more about disabled people! I hope you all have a beautiful day :) Life IS fair :) Thank you YouTube twitter and FB followers, basically all mikeywheels believers :) I love you

Gliding in Tasmania
Music by Clevis!! Thank you Ken! It was always a dream of mine to go there and go gliding, Having very little money and very little strength I knew would be a challenge. However I just had faith and I didn't give up. Almost everything I have for my life is because of not giving up. i made over 30 phone calls before he reached will. In my world there's no room for dreams to wait, Life is short for all of us. Why waste any time? this was one of the best few hours of my life, and it was worth everything to get there... no meds, 17 hour flight (sick), Like I said I always compare myself with those who have it worse, So in reality I have nothing to complain about :) I may not be the best editor, But I'm doing my best to share my life with the world. Thank you all for being a part of it. Thank you Will and Graeme. I have not stopped trying to get you the files. I am having a lot of trouble converting them. Maybe I just have to come back and we'll do it all over again ;) Much love!!
