  Jamie Oakley, orginally from Scott Twp, PA, but now calls Mesquite, NV home is one of a kind.  He is the type of individual that would help anyone including animals before him.  He provided for his family in holding down 2 jobs away from home and working over 12 hour days, when he first got married to Debbie back in 2003.  Approximately 4 years after they got married, he started dealing with severe back pain. That led to 6 back and 1 leg surgery.  Bills were piling up, and they are still trying to catch up with them today.  In between all of that, Niko, his youngest son, was diagnosed with Epilepsy.  Niko, an advide motocross rider, was told that he could never ride again, but with the help of hours of research and finding the right medicine to control his issue, he is still riding and racing.  Jamie now is permanently disabled, due to his back, but still takes care of his 2 stepchildren, Tommy and Francesca and his own son Niko and his wife, Debbie and her dad George.  Niko, age 13, and Jamie are not only father and son, but best friends.  About 2 months ago, Jamie was hit with another obstacle.  He found out that he would have to endure a leg amputation.  This was due to his leg giving out about 4 years ago.  He broke his foot in 9 places and after 3 surgeries on his foot, the doctor gave him the news that it would never get better and it was dying.  He suffered through years of severe pain to be by his son's side during his race career.   And the way he looked at it was, "I will do whatever I have to do, to make my life enjoyable with Niko".  It has not been easy, since his surgery.  Even serving through Desert Storm, did not prepare him for this.  He has lost his leg right below the knee and will hopefully be fitted for his first prostatic soon.  Unfortunately, with minimal insurance and with another surgery along with prosthetics, come more financially issues.  At this point, with only Debbie working, this is becoming quite difficult to make ends meat.  Jamie is a giver, not a taker, someone that has never asked for help, but I want to do this for him being only 40 years old and his family, since he did so much for me and others!  Please help him through this very tough time by donating whatever you can to assist him in paying for some his past and current medical bills.
Thank you in advance!
