Nick Vessicchio Recovery Campaign

On July 27th 2017, my younger brother Nick Vessicchio was mowing his lawn in East Haven  when a tree fell on him. Firefighters rushed to the scene to rescue him and take him to the hospital. Nick had been without oxygen for a short-period of time thus leading to an anoxic brain injury along with a slew of other injuries.

My family and I spent a month in the Yale surgical ICU with Nick, followed by months at Spaulding Rehabilitation Center in MA, The Hospital for Special Care in New Britain CT, and Yale (again). We were finally able to bring Nick home after our house was redone, thanks to the hard work of numerous people, to make it more suitable for Nick's care.

Since then Nick has been through years of numerous therapies including occupational, speech, and physical therapy to name a few. While Nick has progressed through pretty much all of his medical problems due to the injury a few years ago, recovering from a serious brain injury takes years and a decent amount of funding. 

Through multiple meetings with members on Nick's healthcare team, we decided it would be optimal for Nick's recovery to purchase a Hyperbaric Oxygen Chamber for our household so he can easily be treated multiple times per day, so this is the item the funds from this page would go to. 

Nick just turned 19 in April, so he has a long life ahead of him and we want for him to have the highest quality of life possible.  We hope you can contribute any amount during these trying times for everyone and even for those who can't donate, we greatly appreciate your thoughts and prayers.
