Images: Essence of Mickey’s Story

A plane crash in 1968 consumed half of Mickey’s body in third-degree burns. 

Crossing into Eternity, Mickey entered Heaven.  But… he was given a second chance.  His Mission: bring back to Earth a crucial message of HOPE!

Months after the crash, Mickey is still badly burned and hanging onto life, December 1968. Both of Mickey’s legs were paralyzed with severe nerve damage.
