Mike Saavedra and the recovery project.

Well the last few weeks have taking me down a road I was not expecting. One minute your riding trails with your best buds the next your in the O.R about to have your whole lower leg rebuilt. Life throws us some curve balls and we’re not always ready for the pitch.
Fast forward 3 weeks and I’m finally out of the hospital. With a long road ahead of me. I don’t expect this to go away over night. I know this will be one of the most challenging tasks I will have to endure. But with all the help and support from friends and family I am more then ready for the journey ahead.

I want to thank Profile and Deluxe for the endless support and encouragement. As well as everyone who has wished me well or helped out by donating to my go fund me account. You never know what cards you’ll get dealt next. All we can do is play them the best we can and make the most of what we have.

Here’s a few photos recapping my month in Pittsburgh as well as the link to my GoFundMe page.

Thank you again to everyone who has found it in their hearts to donate. I realize this is a tough time for everyone and any help is deeply appreciated.
