Assistance Following Assault

on behalf of Nathan Meyer
 GREENVILLE, RI

The Meyer Family of Smithfield, RI is in need of donations.

On June 12th, 2016, during the early morning hours of his 29th birthday, Nathan Meyer was assaulted in Providence, RI.  This brazen, unprovoked attack came in the form of a single punch to the side of Nathan’s head.  With no forewarning, he was unable to brace himself for the blow.  As a result, Nathan fell a near seven feet before striking his head on the cement.

This senseless act of violence left Nathan with a fractured skull, arterial bleed, and severe brain swelling.  He endured three emergency brain surgeries within his first week of care at Rhode Island Hospital.  Each were necessary to save his life.  The doctors were unsure if Nathan would survive.  Against all odds, however, Nathan continues his fight – nearly one month after being admitted.

Although Nathan’s condition continues to improve, this assault will be life altering for both him and his family.  Nathan will need several months of intensive rehabilitation therapy; his recovery may take several years.  As a Registered Nurse and beloved fiancé, Nathan’s prognosis has been especially devastating. 

It is now with heavy hearts that the Meyer family is requesting your help.  These donations will ensure the transitionary years moving forward will go as smoothly as possible.  Any excess funding will be given to The Brain Injury Association of Rhode Island and/or The Institute for the Study and Practice of Nonviolence of Providence, Rhode Island.

Thank you all so much.

Nathan, As I t ype this, i'm having trouble breathing normally. I"m sending you enough rosy pink as I can. I cannnot believe someone could do that to you. You look like you have a great personality and really soft sould. (soft, meaning gentle, and generating positive bright light. Although I have a feeling gold energy may help as wel. Will consult my Reiki Master on that one. May you heal whole.( Protection, wholeness, safety, bringing in the light. ) is a wonderful healing Mantra. You don't have to say it out loud. Just see his face and send the energy his way. See him recovered fully. Positive energy full of love never hurts. xo
