Welcome to My Personal Page
Hello, my name is Glenn and I'm on my sixth year in raising money for Children's Hospital. I'm raising money in the memory of my friend Mikael, who passed away on Easter Sunday, April 8, 2012, due to complications from an autoimmune disorder where he suffered from encephalitis.
Mikael David Larson was born on December 2, 2005. I never thought of Mikael as being sick, sure he had feeding tubes and was tired from time to time, but once he started something, he never quit, nor complained. If he was hurting, he tried to hide it. He always had a smile on his face, but I could tell. Mikael always wanted to be a superhero, saving and protecting people. Almost everytime we played, he wore part of a costume or a homemade cape. Our home was like a second home for Mikael and his family.
I still remember the last time he came to visit us. He played with me and my baby sister, while his mom was running errands and talking with my mom. At the end of the day, he told my mom to "Pray for me." That was the last time I ever saw Mikael.
I couldn't visit him in the hospital, but my mom cooked food for his family and my dad delivered it, since he worked near the hospital. I wanted to do something too, but what can I do. I was a 8 year old boy, with one of his best friends in hospital. The hospital wouldn't allow toys, since he was in intensive care, I couldn't cook for his family. The only thing I can do is bowl and that is when I decided. I am going to have a bowl-a-thon to help raise money to help Mikael in the hospital, and I linked to one of the biggest bowling events in California Youth Bowling, the Youth State Bowling Championship. I created flyers and sign-up sheets, went door to door, store to store, and to my school to get pledges for Mikael and Radys Children's Hospital.
When Mikael died, less than four months before my bowl-a-thon, I was upset and didn't know what to do. After talking with my dad, we talked with Radys and Mikael's mom and decided to continue. Mikael wouldn't have given up, and neither would I.
With my dad's help six years ago, I created my first miraclemakers page, to raise money for Radys Children's Hospital Hematology and Oncology Research Department. By helping the hospital, they may find better ways to treat and save kids like Mikael.
This years Youth State Bowling Championship will be held in San Rafael, California on July 8 and 9.
