Help a mom get through a tragedy.

I've created this page to help one of my best friends, Melanie Middleton get through a tragic time. Melanie's son, Nicholas stepped in front of a car and is now lying in a coma. Nick just turned 22 while in the hospital. He has a beautiful son, Leo.  Nick is about an hour away from his friends and family. The family is struggling to stay by his side but the financial situation is overwhelming during these times. Melanie is a traveling photographer so she isn't even working and making an income. She is staying in her truck to be with Nick. This family really needs your help. I'm asking for donations to keep the family close.
