Diagnosed with epilepsy at the age of 2, he had a seizure when he was 16 years old while participating in a sports camp, and was told to go home and not come back. but that didn't stop him he continued to go to therapy and now he's on the world famous Harlem wizards basketball team.Mike shows that with just a little faith that anything is possible and that a child shouldn't give up because they were denied. THey should show some courage and try again and maybe one day they could be like the mighty mike who does what he loves. All a person have to do is have passion for something and they can achieve anything they would want too.
