Support for Martin Nicholson

Martin lost his 20 month old son, Ryan, and his 5-year girlfriend, Cristina Mier, in a car accident on July 7, 2017. They were beautiful and full of life. Martin went through the windshield on the passenger side and suffered severe injuries, yet got up and tried to rescue his family from the vehicle. He has a head injury, broken neck, broken ribs, lacerated internal organs,  and he was impaled by debris from the accident that broke his clavicle and went deep into his neck. Along with these and many other lacerations and bruises, Martin is suffering from post traumatic stress as a result of witnessing the horrific events of his family passing away in the accident.  His clavicle injury could not be fully repaired in the hospital due to the severity of his other injuries. His health insurance is minimal and multiple attempts to get Marty seen by a surgeon and approved by insurance for the surgery needed to repair his clavicle and restore full use of his arm have failed. He is currently relying on family for support, but Marty will need long term physical and mental health treatment  in order to recover. We are raising money to pay for his surgery and other medical and living expenses he will have on his long road to healing. Thank you for you help!
