The Project

On Monday December 14th 2015, John Michael Night, only 17 years old, suffered a devastating brain stem stroke leaving him in what is medically referred to as Locked-In Syndrome (LIS). JM has played for many club teams in Florida and was a regular member of the PV Sandgnats Team.

With Locked-In Syndrome the patient is fully aware with no mental impairment, but sadly cannot move his body or communicate verbally due to complete paralysis of nearly all voluntary muscles in the body except for the eyes…

Bottom line is John Michael has been dealt a horrible card to say the very least!

Immediate, intensive, and ongoing rehabilitation is critical to achieving the most optimal outcome.

Just two weeks before his stroke, he signed a scholarship to play D1 lacrosse at Mercer University. This was the moment he always dreamed of and highlight of his young life… the reward for years of dedication and hard work on/off the field.

John Michael and his family are facing a super long and financially taxing road ahead. They need your help and support to provide their son the very best chance at a full recovery.

We’ve already been told that insurance will cover only a very small portion of the immensely costly rehabilitation needed. Sadly, insurance won’t cover the endless and ongoing support, care, and rehabilitation needed for John Michael’s lengthy recovery process.

We have all the confidence in the world that John Michael will do his part to fight like a true warrior and we so desperately want to do our part in giving him every chance and opportunity to succeed.

We know he will be a true inspiration to other brain stem stroke patients and any person or athlete going thru a traumatic life-changing event!

ALL money raised will go directly into a designated recovery fund and only for John Michael’s rehabilitation.

This is why we suit up; for JM24 and one of our own.

Please feel free to follow John Michael’s progress on the Caring Bridge website located here:

Thank you for all the love, support and prayers for John Michael!
