Help Mrs. Slade with Surgery Bills

Hey everyone, Nick Slade is a great friend of ours within the Orlando nerd community and his mother had a major back surgery this past Summer. Mrs. Slade had three spinal fusions on the last three vertebrae with cages around them made out of metal, screws, and donor bone.

She was in the hospital for two weeks doing rehab then has been home since August 14th where she has received skilled nursing, physical therapy, and occupational therapy. She currently uses a wheelchair to move around in short spurts and will not be able to return to work until at least November 14th.

Mrs. Slade is a school teacher and her insurance has covered some of the medical expenses, but they have had to cut some services like internet to make things work and Nick took up a second job to help out. This GoFundMe is designed to help out our friend Nick and his family clear the financial hurdle of this ordeal and anything you can donate will help out.
