On the Monday after Thanksgiving 2016, Mike was diagnosed with Liver Failure. Mike maintained his health but knew eventually he would need a liver transplant. In June of this year Mike's disease unfortunately progressed rapidly to end stage liver failure. He is now in need of a transplant soon. He goes to Rochester Mayo on Wed, September 6th to meet with his Dr. to talk about the possibility of a transplant. Please keep him in your prayers. He is staying at Birchwood cottages in Owatonna, Mn. He would welcome any visitors. His address is Birchwood cottages c/o Michael Lord 1905 Austin rd. Owatonna, Mn. Mike continues his fight and his main focus is spending time and making memories with his children Maxwell and Jackson. I will keep the site as updated as possible. Thanks Laurel.
