Before the incident, Robert was responsible for taking care of his mother and elderly aunt. Now he is trying to support 2 households. At this time both Robert and Nicole are physically unable to return to their previous jobs. After being hospitalized for 2 months, Robert still has extensive right hand and wrist damage that requires additional surgery. Robert is right handed. His left shoulder is frozen. Nicole was given a colostomy and at this time is still too ill to have her reversal surgery.
The two Officers haven’t been paid since early August and Robert’s medical insurance has temporarily been shut off making him unable to attend his thrice weekly physical therapy appointments. Robert and Nicole have both been diagnosed with PTSD. They have amassed thousands of dollars in medical bills over the last 10 months. They are struggling to pay their monthly bills as they currently have no income.
Robert was a New York State correction officer for 3 and half years and a Westchester county correction officer for 2 years. Nicole has been a Westchester county correction officer for 7 years.
All donations and support received will go towards their medical bills, continued medical treatments, financial obligations and the rest of their basic needs. I love these two good hearted people very much and hope that you find it in your heart to support them in anyway possible. Thank you for taking your time to consider their circumstance and please share it with as many as possible.
