Nikolai now is 31 years old. He has being in coma since 2010 do a car accident. Hey
was in in his last year in college.
Through this years he has being through many surgeries and infections. In and out of hospitals.
His being a fighter surviving all this years all this conditions and havent being easy.
The true is that isnt out there places for people in coma. So they place people in coma in nursing home and that is where he has being all this years.
Im his mother and I spend many hours with him daily in the nursing home making
sure he is in good condition . I exercise him , turn him in bed, place him in a chair ,bringhim outside. Put music and TV for him, talk to him daily.
He has medicaid which doesnt pay for physical therapy so I do what I can to move
I buy him special suplements to keep his body healthy.
We have faith and hope that he wakes up to all the friend that love him so much an
also his family.
He was in his last year in college when the accident happen and they still send us all
his bills in $80 thousand.
During this years we have being doing many sound and reiki therapy for him which
has help very much. We would like to do much more alternative therapy for him
because he respond very well. Its-many ways to stimulate the body to wake but we
can afford. We need some help to wake him up.
Despite extreme medical odds and continuous projections of failure, Nikolai has overcome many life threatening emergencies that are caused by brain injury. Nikolai is a
fighter, and we love him.
Nikolai has endured 5 surgeries with over 50+ hours and many years in and out of
Everyday Nikolai shows signs of improvement, and signs that he will waking up soon
. It has been 8 years but each day Nik reminds us the strength of human will and
He has not only shown movement of his mouth as if he wants to tell you something
, opening an eye to acknowledge your presence or squeezing your hand with joy that
who come to sit by his side, he has connected and taught everyone who has crossed
his path a life lesson. A life lesson that is different for each person.
Value life, friendhships, and the people around us that we might take for granted that they will be there tomorrow. Nik has awaken spirits and humbled them too. Nik has
made friends with all his nurses and doctors while shocking them as I may add.
Though a donation to help us bring Nikolai to a specialized coma facility will be appreciated 100000X over, Nikolai needs us. He needs us emotionally and physically.
Throughout these 8 years people have come and and gone, but lately it seems that the thought of hope has been forgotten. Nik has not forgotten, he still here surgery after surgery, infection after infection. He's in there and he's fighting to get back to us. We believe it and the more we truly believe the quicker reality is impacted.
Our goal is to raise $100,000 to move Nik and help pay his student loans (who still call us everyday to get payment but refuse to talk to anyone else except for him),
medical bills. and more treatments.
We ask if you do donate to share with everyone that you did. The more love we send out there the more we receive!
