Michael Brewer, Burn Victim, Has Thousands Raised For Him At Benefit

Posted: Updated:

Valerie Brewer described the turnout at a fundraiser held for her son Michael as "incredible." The 15-year-old Michael was doused with alcohol and set on fire a month ago in South Florida. Three boys have been charged with attempted murder and will be tried as adults. But Valerie Brewer says that she's not focusing on the prosecution of the assailants, only on her son's quick recovery.

A foundation to help pay Michael's medical bills has already raised over $130,000, including donations from several members of the Miami Dolphins who attended the fundraiser, including injured quarterback Chad Pennington.

All donations are currently being directed through Neighbors 4 Neighbors, sponsored by the local CBS affiliate. To make a donation to Michael Brewer's fund, visit their site and specify "Michael Brewer" in the field marked "Intention For Donation." You can also donate via the widget below.

Michael's doctor and mother say that he is making great progress. Valerie says Michael is determined to overcome his ailments and return to normal life. His friend D.C., a brother of one of the suspects, expressed his sympathies to "Mikey" and said he hoped they could all get through this. Watch the complete report on "Good Morning America."
