Support The Bushnell's

As most of their loved ones know, Nick and Vicky have faced and overcome several battles over the last couple of years.  Health-wise, this past year in particular has been tremendously hard for Vicky.  

Nick and Vicky have been together for over eleven years and married for five.   They have two beautiful children, Ava, 3, and Madden, 6.  They’ve created a wonderful and strong family, and for those of us who have had the pleasure to be bystanders throughout their journey can agree they’ve done an extraordinary job at fulfilling their roles as both husband and wife and mommy and daddy.  

Unfortunately, as health issues arose in the last year or so, their family has struggled to hold all of the pieces together.   

As the stubborn little fighter that she is, she pushed through every obstacle with determination and grace, all while managing to balance work, family, friends, personal obligations and much more (I can’t even comprehend how she does it, personally!).  

Just as she thought she was in the clear, other complications surfaced.  She was recently hospitalized again, enduring back to back seizures for the past week.  Working and praying hard to find answers, she’s been removed from her home, her family, and her job once again.  As you can imagine, this brings a great deal of stress in all aspects, but one in which can be helped and that is financially.

This family is in need of support as Vicky faces yet another long road to recovery for both present and future obligations. 

As a friend of Vicky’s, I can vouch that she far exceeds this role as well.  Never is there a time that she will turn her shoulder to someone in need.  She goes above and beyond to protect and help all of her loved ones without hesitation, and also those that she doesn’t know.  Even as she battled consecutive months of health complications, she managed to attend her son’s games, create beautiful handmade costumes for her daughter, fulfill wedding obligations, attend birthday parties, organize benefits, respond to texts at all times of the day and night with relationship and wardrobe advice.. You name it, she did her best not to let anything hold her back.  She truly is a spectacular person, and she and her family deserve every bit of that support in return at this time.  So please, every little bit counts.  Every penny, every ‘share, like and comment’... It ALL goes appreciated.
