Mike Picou Fund. An account was established at Capital One Bank by friends and relatives of Mike Picou to help with his expenses related to medical costs, equipment and lifesaving drugs. Mike was on a heart transplant list for some time, but through God's grace and the generosity of the donor he has received a new heart! You may make a donation to the Mike Picou Donation Account #2077621949 at any of the Capital One Bank branches. Any donation would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
