The Story

Omaha, NE

Mike (38) and Denise Shearer love nothing more than to spend time with their three children and are proud, doting parents. They recently relocated back home from Minnesota to Omaha with his young family to be closer to their family and friends. As a director of Business Development, Mike is the primary provider while Denise cares for the kids at home. However, the Shearers’ world completely changed when Mike suffered a severe stroke on November 5.

Prior to his stroke, Mike was diagnosed with diabetes. In the past year, he lost a significant amount of weight and was feeling ill much of the time. On November 5, Mike was rushed to the intensive care unit (ICU) at Methodist Hospital after falling ill with pneumonia and having complications with his blood sugar levels. While in the ICU, his doctor discovered a staph infection in his bloodstream. The infected clot from this valve broke away to infect his spleen and kidneys and caused a massive stroke on November 8 that has impacted his ability to control the right side of his body and his receptive and verbal communication.

Following his stroke, Mike was transferred to Nebraska Medical Center where he is slowly regaining consciousness after being in a medically induced coma. He underwent a decompressive craniectomy to relieve the swelling on his brain that occurs and will have an open skull for the foreseeable future. Denise has stayed by his side every moment he has been hospitalized, often running on short amounts of sleep. His large network of family and friends have helped support the family the best they can by take care of their children and visiting them at the hospital. “We are all beyond shocked how a seemingly healthy 38 year old may never speak or comprehend others again, although through the power of prayer we believe strongly in the miracle that he will,” said family friend Kourtney DeFreece.

To ease the burden of Mike’s hospitalization, his friends and family hopes to raise $80,000 through RedBasket.org to help with his out out-of-pocket medical expenses, ongoing medical treatments, and daily living bills. “Reaching our goal will help the family with covering all of the many expenses that may arise with Mike having the inability to work for the foreseeable future,” Kourtney said. Let’s allow the Shearers to fully focus on Mike’s recovery journey with the added financial stress. Show your support by making a tax-deductible donation and sharing his story today!

An update on Mike's progress and a thank you to our donors |

After Mike’s family was told he would have no verbal


communication, no receptiveness, and would never move his right side after his


stroke in November, he has made incredible progress through rehabilitation! This


video shows the family’s joy and Mike’s improvements.

“We’re always moving forward and continuing to celebrate each


milestone,” said Denise. “Never say never. Love, determination and faith got us


through.”

The Shearers are so grateful for your donations that made


this recovery possible and relieved Denise of her financial worries during this


time.
