On 12/10/17 Nikki Mancinho Schlogel was rushed to an ER located in Wyoming after having severe back pain and feeling extremely ill. It was there that during her CAT scan it would be revealed that she was having an aneurism of her heart. Nikki was then flown shock trama to Loveland, Colorado for an emergency open heart surgery so she could get an artificial heart valve on her ascending aorta. 

After spending over a week in the hospital, Nikki was discharged and free to fly back home to her residence in White Marsh, MD.

This has been an extremely tough recovery for Nikki and it hasn't been easy for her but she is a survivor and one of the strongest people one could know. Nikki is currently still recovering and is at home watched over by nurses that come in and out of her home throughout the day.

Nikki is an amazing mother of one, wife to her husband Scott and truly loved by her family and friends. Nikki is one of the brightest, goofiest, down to earth and giving people you could ever come across!

As you could imagine the amount these expenses cost to keep her on her way to a speedy recovery, they are not affordable by the family. Scott has had to take off a large amount of time from work, the cost of the hotel to stay in Loveland, CO for the rest of the family to be by Nikki's side as well as the around the clock nurses, medications and the list goes on and on.

Please contribute anything you can to this amazing family so that they can continue down the path to the life they once had without having to worry about the burden of these medical expenses.

Any contribution does help. Please also share this to all of your friends so we can be sure to get Nikki's story heard and accomplish our goal of helping the family out financially during their time in need.

The Schlogel family thanks you in advance for all of your kind contributions as well as helping to get their story heard.
