"Mike Yasick appreciated every single second of those he loved. He appreciated his life, and when you were with him, when you thought of him, you appreciated your own life even more."
Why the red pants?
There is a now famous picture of Mike Yasick, one of the Yasick men who was lost too soon to VEDS, sitting in his office with his feet up on his desk in a pair of bright red pants. The attitude of living fearlessly that is captured in the picture is a wonderful reflection of the person Mike was in spite of his VEDS diagnosis. Today, the red pants serve as a symbol of VEDS that helps us to honor the memory of Mike, and all those we have loved and lost, and to spread a message of living life to the fullest and appreciating the people that surround us that we know would make Mike proud.
