Michael Schumacher will have his 50th birthday tomorrow and as a tribute to the 7 time world champion, Keep Fighting foundation has created a virtual museum.
Schumacher’s official app too will be released tomorrow so as to help fans relive the glory days of their German champion.
Schumacher has been away from public eye ever since his horrific ski accident in 2013. His family has kept his fans away from updates about his health as they want to solely focus on getting Schumacher back to his feet.

However, 5 years on from his accident and on the occasion of his 50th birthday, his family has released a small statement.
“We are very happy to celebrate Michael’s 50th birthday tomorrow together with you and thank you from the bottom of our hearts that we can do this together. As a gift to him, you and us, Keep Fighting Foundation has created a virtual museum.” the statement read
“The Official Michael Schumacher App will be released tomorrow, so that we can review all together Michael’s successes. The app is another milestone in our effort to do justice to him and you, his fans, by celebrating his accomplishments. We wish you a lot of fun with it.

“Michael can be proud of what he has achieved, and so are we! That’s why we remember his successes with the Michael Schumacher Private Collection exhibition in Cologne, by publishing memories in social media and by continuing his charitable work through the Keep Fighting Foundation.
“We want to remember and celebrate his victories, his records and his jubilation.” it added.
Coming to the part of his health, the statement clearly stated that everything humanly possible was being done in order to get Michael up and running again and it is indeed Michael’s wish to keep his health updates private.
“You can be sure that he is in the very best of hands and that we are doing everything humanly possible to help him. Please understand if we are following Michael’s wishes and keeping such a sensitive subject as health, as it has always been, in privacy. At the same time we say thank you very much for your friendship and wish you a healthy and happy year 2019.” the statement concluded.
