Here’s Tag’s classic bowling alley interview with from early 1999, probably one of the funnest interviews ever, in that you will learn virtually nothing about him.
I’ve known Tag for years, and the news today of his health issue hit me hard. My wife went through a similar struggle over 10 years ago and it wasn’t easy, but after being cared for by a great group of doctors she fully recovered. Tag has been diagnosed with Stage II non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma. With Stage IV being the worst, it’s hopeful Tag can make a recovery like my wife. Having strong and supportive friends and family around you makes all the difference in the world.
Like many BMXers, Mike doesn’t have health insurance and would appreciate any financial help from our community. Here are some other sources with great info about his situation. Get well soon Tag.
