Thought it was just a clever video to go viral, i was wrong.
Crazy Mike didn’t care if he had to travel cross-country to get a job because he loved his work. From modeling to production to stunt work, Crazy Mike did it all. Though his last job in Hollywood would have been a big break for him, it has now left him unable to work and may end his career.
At 25 years of age, Mike Gaboff held the world in his hands. From a young age, he loved to entertain people with his unique personality. As he got older, he incorporated tricks until he took this passion to stunt work in Hollywood.
On April 21, Crazy Mike attempted a motorcycle stunt for Break Media that involved Sony Production. After a miscalculation, he overshot a lake at a height of six stories and landed tough; pounding the asphalt at a high speed.
After a four-day struggle for his life, family and friends took a deep breath when the news came that he would survive. Mike’s injuries range from a broken neck and back, two broken arms, a broken pelvis, ribs, sternum, second-degree burns, and, needless to say, a broken heart. At this time, he still sits in the Arrowhead Medical Center in Colton, California. Disturbing information came to the family that the production companies have denied workman’s compensation.
Mike’s family lives in Millstone Township and is in urgent need to have him return to New Jersey to continue his healing process. At this time, the family is awaiting admissions to any facility in New Jersey to take him. There is Medicaid pending at this time. If Mike is lucky enough to have a facility take him in, then a medical transport must be arranged. These types of transports run thousands of dollars. The family has continued to travel to stay by his side. Mike’s parents are both self-employed and must return New Jersey to continue to manage things. Because it will be a long road to recovery, Mike and his family are asking for your help.
There are several ways to help. Anyone interested in helping with Mike’s recovery can contact firstname.lastname@example.org and make a non-tax-deductible gift to the Gaboff family at Brunswick Bank & Trust in Freehold or by mail to P.O. Box 6384, Freehold, NJ 07728. The family is in the process of planning fundraisers at Applebees of Manalapan and TGI Fridays of Freehold in the beginning of June. The first fundraiser will be a pancake breakfast to be held on Saturday June 16 at Applebee’s in Manalapan
