BOUNCE OUT THE STIGMA
With "Mighty Mike"
BASKETBALL
CAMP
For youth 7-17 with an epilepsy/seizure disorder and other neurological disorders 


MEET "MIGHTY MIKE"
"Bounce Out The Stigma"

Born in Glendale, CA, Mike Simmel developed epilepsy at the age of two. He struggled as a youth and could not participate in "regular" activities due to his condition.  Mike was placed in special education gym class because of his slow motor skills.

At age seven, Mike outgrew his early "drop attacks"; his father gave him a basketball to develop his coordination. It worked and Mike dreamed BIG. Years later when he was at a basketball camp, he had his first major grand-mal attack in nearly ten years. The camp nearly, but unsuccessfully, tried to have him dismissed. That incident would change Mike forever.

Mike continued to have seizures and played basketball throughout high school and college. Eventually, he went on to play for the Harlem Wizards basketball team!

Mike makes it his mission to connect with kids and to "Bounce Out The Stigma" of epilepsy. Read more here
