CHICAGO (April 26, 2021) It has been discovered by Team Mongo that unauthorized t-shirts and other products are being sold on the internet without any of the funds being donated to Steve McMichael’s ALS care.
Steve would like his fans to know how grateful he is for their support with sales of the “TEAM MONGO” Obvious Shirts and rubber bracelets and the donations to the GoFundMe. However, he is very upset that there are people out there that are profiting from his devastating ALS diagnosis.
“Please let everyone know Misty, Macy and I are very humbled by the love, support and generosity being shown to us. It’s overwhelming. However, I am disheartened to learn of the vultures circling trying to make money off my illness. I ask that they do the right thing and remove these products immediately. I don’t want my real fans to think they are donating to my struggle when they aren’t. Is there anything worse than people making money off someone’s illness?” said McMichael.
