When smart, precocious Michael Warechowski was having trouble learning to walk at age 2, his parents, Marietta residents Katie and Mike Warechowski, were devastated to learn the unthinkable: their only son has a fatal degenerative condition called Metachromatic Leukodystrophy (MLD). Since then, their lives have drastically changed, but their love and adoration for Michael has only multiplied.
Join us in raising support for Michael’s staggering medical bills, so we can bless this family as much as possible during the time they have together.

In addition to the emotional weight of their son’s diagnosis, the Warechowski’s also live with a crushing financial reality, as most of Mikey’s medical needs are not covered by insurance or government assistance. In addition to running their own business, Fitness Together East Cobb, they also rely on the support of donors and individuals to help ends meet for Mikey’s care. To support them, you can donate via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org (Katie Warechowski’s PayPal account). Or, checks can also be made out directly to Michael Warechowski and mailed to:
The Warechowski Family
1645 Lake Holcomb Ln.
Marietta, GA 30062
