Help for Nick

My name is Michelle Jackson and I'm starting this GoFundMe page for my nephew, Nick. He has been battling a chronic illness for 3 1/2 years. During this time he has been hospitalized over 35 times. He has been diagnosed with Cyclical Vomiting Syndrome, Gastric Reflux Disease, Severe Gastritis, Esophagitis, Bleeding Ulcers and Stomach Tears. When he has an "attack" he becomes quickly dehydrated due to so much vomiting and experiences collapsed veins. Unfortunately, the illness has escalated and he is now being hospitalized every two to three weeks, with a stay of 5-6 days each time. He lives day by day on a very restrictive diet and we all hope that the condition will improve over time. At this time the doctors do not know what causes this vomiting syndrome and when or if the condition will ever go away. Nick has been unable to work the past 2 years due to his illness and frequent hospital stays. His medication is expensive and his bills are adding up. My family and I would appreciate prayers: any information you have on his diagnosis, and any financial support you can give Nick. He's an amazing young man and has so much to offer this world. We are praying this chapter in his life is coming to a close and he can move forward and live a healthy, happy, and productive life.
