ABOUT MIKEY

AKA FOOTBALL’S DAREDEVIL

When Mikey was 6 years old his parents took him for a routine eye test and a few months later was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare incurable eye disease called ‘Rod Cone Dystrophy’ that in most cases eventually leads to blindness.
We are on the search for a cure for this amazing young boy.
