Hello my friends! Nick’s family is looking into ways to raise funds for Nick’s rehab and care at the Eisenhower Center as the VA has pulled the plug. I no longer have time to fight with them for coverage of Nick’s care and Nick needs the care as well as the rehab, sooooo…… We are looking into different ways to raise funds, (i.e.) Benefit dinner, t-shirts if you donate, future run, etc…. so please be on the lookout for a future benefit to take place. I will keep you all posted on dates, times, location. Nick does receive disability from the military, but it is not enough to cover all his cost, this is why the need for fundraising. All proceeds will go into helping Nick and his goal in “getting my brain back” as he has said so many times.
We are looking at getting him seen by a physician outside the VA realm for a second opinion and maybe more clarification on the route needed for Nick’s care and treatment. I find the fact that we have to go outside the “system” in order to find care, treatment, and support, absolutely dumbfounding as it is clear to me that if a person serves their country and sacrifices “ALL”, they surley deserve to be taken care of in a quality fashion and not over medicated, left in a nursing home with no stimulation to rot away, and clearly receive the best care possible. Do you not agree? Nick and other the other soilders deserve being treated with respect, honor, and dignity. Nick, in a lot of ways has not. Yes, there are those who have supported him and us that are in the system, but they are only a few amongst many. Thank God for those who have had the compassion to help us “Fight 4 Nick”.
So please stay tuned as we will be announcing information soon on fundraising events. Thank you all for supporting Nick, it means so much to him and his family. Nick is updated frequently on what is happening for him behind the scene. In Nick’s own words, “Oh really? That’s good.”
