Nicole O'Connell Lyle Benefit

Three and a half years ago, our son came home from the hospital following a profound brain injury. Nicole Lyle has been his nurse since day one. Nicole has not just taken care of our son, she has loved him and her care expresses that and the exceptional person and nurse she is. What she has done for us is invaluable and priceless. She now needs our help and yours. Just 28 years old, this precious young woman suffered life-threatening complications on June 4 during a relatively minor heart procedure at Shands Hospital in Gainesville, FL. She coded and doctors performed CPR for 10 minutes on her before rushing her to surgery. Once she is strong enough, she will have a second open-heart surgery.

Nicole's husband, Thomas, is at her side. Married just 10 months, his devotion will not let him leave her in this condition. Gainesville, Florida is a long way from Panama City where Thomas operates his business, "Quick Fix Computers". Presently, he is unable to work any at all, and of course, neither is Nicole. They now have large medical bills in addition to their living expenses. The couple has a seven-year-old daughter, Amanda, whose needs continue though her mother is fighting for her life. Here's how you can help.

Please pray for Nicole, for her to grow stronger so she can have the surgery that will get her back on the road to health. Please pray for Thomas and Amanda and all who love Nicole. And, if you would be willing to help them with their mounting expenses, even the smallest contribution would help so much. Perhaps at a time when you were in need someone reached out to help you. If so, please pay it forward now. Nicole and her family need our help.
