Nick Needs Our Help!

Nick is a 33-year-old young man who is very ill. After years of struggling with both cardiomyopathy and congestive heart failure resulting in four strokes, a heart transplant is his only hope for survival. Nick is one of the kindest people you’d ever hope to meet and he needs our help. The cost of a transplant can be overwhelming.

My dad and Nick have been staying together in Stanford it’s required that Nick has 24 hour care , my dad relocated himself to be with my brother , there relationship is defiantly trying sometimes but these two both have a chance to be there for each other . Dad says he is so happy that he gets to be there for my brother. My dad has really stepped up he has left his job and his life back home to assist his son in my brothers time of need . Nick my brother knowing this pushes himself to want to get healthier and looks at life like it was there last. These two inspire me and I’m the oldest sibling. Love them both .
