Oregon State Trooper Wounded 12/25

$85,975 of $100k goal

 Tigard, OR
On Christmas night Oregon State Trooper Nic Cederberg (32) was shot multiple times at close range while engaging a murder suspect, who died during the confrontation.  Nic sustained life threatening injuries, and is currently in the intensive care unit at a Portland hospital.  He's undergone multiple lengthy surgeries and has a long road of recovery ahead of him.   We are also very lucky to have him still with us.

Nic's brave actions that night are no suprise to anyone that knows and loves him.  He's not the type to run from a fight and unfortunately during this fight he was hurt fairly bad.  He loves being an OSP officer and is extremely good at what he does.  He pours his heart and soul into protecting each and everyone of us, and now we are asking for you to send a little bit of that love his way.

I went by to see Nic yesterday and when I opened the door all I found was an empty hospital room. All of Nic and Hayley’s stuff was in the room but they were gone. I checked in at the nurses station and they told me they gave him free reign to roam the hospital as long as he was supervised, in a wheel chair and back before 4:00 PM. When I found them they were on the ninth floor atrium which overlooks Portland and the Willamette River. He was staring out at the landscape and at one point he made the comment that the sky looked a lot different than it had before everything happened. This was the same spot where we spent the first three days waiting for updates on his condition, spending time with loved ones and supporters, and most importantly just being there for him and each other. What many don’t know is how bad it really was that night. Most can speculate but few know what really happened, and with Nic’s permission I’m going to give you the highlights.

On that Christmas night my brother was shot twelve times at a distance no greater than twelve feet, a gun fight in a phone booth. Almost every one of his rounds, three magazine’s worth, had been fired when it was all said and done. When the shooting stopped and all went quiet Nic knew he was in serious trouble. As he lay there for a little more than two minutes by himself bleeding, he locked in mentally and found a way to survive. When the first police officers arrived he demanded they take him to the hospital in his own car as it would be faster than every other ambulance on the planet. What he didn’t know is how bad of shape he was really in, and that had they done that it would have probably killed him. What he did have with him were experienced officers who knew how to pack bullet wounds correctly and this ultimately saved Nic’s life. This wasn’t a typical shooting in that, to my knowledge, no police officer has ever taken twelve rounds at that range and lived. Of those twelve rounds that hit him, five were stopped by his bullet proof vest and the other seven struck his flesh. Those bullets hit him in both arms, the torso coming to rest in his lung and abdomen, and two hitting his spinal canal almost paralyzing him. Of the seven that hit him, four were still inside him when he arrived at the hospital. When he leaves the hospital tomorrow for the next stop in his journey he will still have one lodged in his lower spine for the rest of his life. When I said that he was “one tough hombre” I meant it, and the only reason he is still here today is someone was watching over him that night, I firmly believe it. Any one of those twelve bullets should have killed him and they didn’t.

To all of you out there holding fundraisers, sending him cards, letters, emails, balloons, hosting hellish Crossfit workouts (he hates burpees by the way), and commenting on these posts wishing him encouragement, Nic would like to say THANK YOU. He and Hayley are in absolute disbelief and truly humbled at the amount of support they are receiving on a national scale.

Yesterday Nic was able to stand for the very first time, and the result of that small victory sapped him of every ounce of energy he had. In his own words he was “smoked”. It took him an hour to ever so carefully position himself on the side of the bed just to get ready to stand, something that most of us could do in mere seconds with ease. Mind you he has two arms in casts which essentially render them useless. All of this effort was to help him jump start areas of his body that desperately needed to be moved in order to speed up his recovery. He could have very easily laid in bed and just waited patiently for rehab to start in a few weeks, to him that was giving up. Instead he chose to fight through excruciating pain just for this small victory. Yet he was only half way there when he sat back down, now he had to get back into bed which took him another thirty minutes. When it was all said and done he took a well-deserved nap knowing that tomorrow he will do it all over again.

As of late I’ve been hesitant to respond to those people who question the need for the GoFundMe account. Yes, all of Nic’s medical bills will be covered. Yes, Nic will be paid through workman’s comp but it will only be a fraction of what he was making prior to this accident. No, this is not a reward or bonus for doing his job that night. What this GoFundMe account is really for is to give Nic as well as his wife Hayley what they need the most and that is TIME. Time to heal, time to rest, time to decompress, time for Nic and Hayley to be together and breathe easy knowing that thousands of people have their back and that WE will stand watch for them now. This is why this GoFundMe account was set up and we are truly grateful for the support of those who have donated and those who will donate in the future.

I’ve also read a few comments about how Nic signed up to be an Oregon State Trooper and that he knew full well the dangers of what he was getting into. Yes Nic, as well as every other law enforcement officer (LEO) and military veteran is fully aware of the dangers that come when they put on their uniform and protect and serve our country. If you’ve ever seen the movie American Sniper there is a scene where Chris Kyle’s father is telling his boys that there are three types of people in this world. There are the sheep, who if evil ever knocked on their front door they wouldn’t know how to protect themselves. And then there are the wolves who use violence to prey on the weak. And then there are the those who have been blessed with the over powering need and ability to protect others. These men and women are a rare breed who live to confront the wolf, they are the sheep dog. I tell you this because Nic and the other LEO’s who responded to this call are undoubtedly the sheep dogs. In this particular case Nic went one on one in a gun fight at close range that lasted several minutes before additional help arrived. He could have let the wolf evade him and keep going and who knows what could’ve happened if Nic hadn’t engaged him. He could have very easily driven down the wrong way on a one way highway at high speed and killed a family coming back from Christmas dinner in a head on collision. He could have very easily continued killing other people he deemed necessary. I do know that Nic’s only focus while on that call was to stop the wolf from hurting someone else and to do that it nearly cost him his life.

So please in this difficult time we would appreciate it if the handful of negative comments and criticisms stopped going forward. I understand that you may not agree with the situation but it does Nic and our family no good to read them and just makes the healing process that much harder. To those of you who have donated, written him via email, offered your time and resources, drawn him pictures, and stopped by to see him he is truly humbled. So on behalf of Nic and our entire family to all of you again we wouldn’t be able to do this without you, THANK YOU.

Seven days ago my world, as well as hundreds of others, was turned upside down in a dramatic way. Someone I love dearly was hurt and there was nothing I could have done to change or stop it. What I do know is that that person was ready, willing and able to not hesitate to do what was needed even if it cost him everything. That person is my brother Nic Cederberg. Right now Nic is starting to realize the severity of the situation he was in that night. He questions everything that happened and what he could have been done better. I'm here to tell you his actions were above reproach and he saved countless lives all while disregarding his own.

His his physical condition is improving at a rate most wouldn't believe. I have yet to hear him scream or moan when he's been worked on. He locks in on someone in the room with his eyes and grits his teeth and stays silent until they are finished. I'm hear to tell you he is the toughest person I know and those who've seen him would agree.

A day ago he decided to sit-up for the first time. To most of us this is not a big deal but to Nic it was everything. It validated and reassured him mentally that he was going to be okay. It hurt like hell but was another huge step, just as it was to be moved out of the ICU. He sat in the bed with Hayley and locked in once again while she held him.

I didn't post this picture last night because it didn't feel like the right thing to do at the time. But the more we've talked about it as a family we've realized it's important to show the struggle and how real it is. It's also meant to show that he's not laying around enthusiastically high fiving his friends and family. It's really purpose is to show everyone how hard he's fighting to move and recover. It's an extremely powerful moment between Nic and Hayley in that it reassured both of them everything WILL be okay.

Talked to Nic again today and he is doing well. He is still amazing the doctors and nurses with how his recovery is going. Although he is in a lot of pain and your encouragement is not lost on him. To date we've tallied close to 2,500+ comments via email, Facebook, and gofundme and they are still rolling in. I don't think we will every be able to thank all of you individually but we want you to know that your support has made it easier on our family during this difficult time. Whether it be a shoulder to cry on, a much needed hug, or just words of encouragement when we can't be as strong as we need to be we want to say THANK YOU!

Hey Ryan Crutcher...how about reading this: An online charity drive seeking $100,000 has been launched to raise money for the trooper and his family. Though bills related to Cederberg's injuries will be part of a workers' compensation claim, people can donate to the family to help cover the cost of lost wages, hotel rooms and other expenses! Copied from an online post! The man served his Country as an Army Veteran and a Police Officer...it's about time his Country gave something back to him. Take your negative comments somewhere else...God Bless the Cederburg Family & Thank You Nic for your Service!

Ryan Crutcher - I am an officers wife out of SC and I want to educate you on a few facts about an injured officer. The medical bills are only a part of the big picture in this situation. What you are missing is that in most cases - the injured officer does not receive full pay while out. Additionally - most officers work side jobs to make up for their low wages so this injured officer is not able to do this. Also - officers spouses will miss work and pay in order to be by the side of their injured LEO so there is even less money. Since most households in America live paycheck to paycheck - most budgets are set up knowing the exact amounts of money coming in. So now we have an injured hero making a portion of his salary trying to heal all the while knowing that the bills are piling up and he has no way to make the additional income. I realize that you felt the need to have your voice heard and do not agree with this campaign- so just realize that while you are out making 100% of your salary today in good health and have the ability to work extra should you need to - that there is a hero lying in a hospital bed not able to do any of those things because he was out protecting neighborhoods just so you can go about your day safely.

A person just shared this message with me, thought I would pass it along "I was reading some comments on the go fund me page - you might want to educate 'Ryan Crutcher.' He makes a statement referring to all medical costs and loss of time should be covered. As a 30yr. veteran of DOC, I have had to scrape by to pay medical bills long after the incident, and the insurance of being paid while recuperating is only a percentage. The young man who commented should become a state employee to learn the facts!"

Ryan Catcher, I am a paramedic with an on the job injury. Guess what if work comp denies treatment, which they do all the time, you get the bill. You also only get a percentage of your pay and it doesn't compensate for lost overtime. I'm getting about 55% of what I was making and work comp has been denying surgery for 2 years even after 5 surgeons, including their own have told them it's 100% necessary. Nic didn't ask to be shot, he will need the money. He is a hero and a veteran and needs to be treated with much more respect. If you don't want to donate, then don't. But keep your opinion to yourself.

Hey Nic....I am a patrol Sergeant from the La Grande Police Department. Your McMinnville supervisor was my training officer (many years ago), so we share that together. Because of that - I'm following your story a little more closely and am sending good thoughts your way! Please ignore the few negative comments here on this page. They have no understanding of how WC works, or the help your family will need that will not be covered by your department. It's easy to troll, when you have the courage of a keyboard and monitor to hide behind. You are a true hero. You probably don't feel that way and are incredibly humbled by all of this - but hold your head up high. The only expectations you have to hold up to are your own. Stay strong and know that your blue family has your six! You are an inspiration for the rest of us still wearing a badge!

I would like to address the lady who had some question about the need for a GoFundMe account in this situation. I can speak only for myself, but this donation I made was as much for me as it was for Trooper Cederberg. I do battle on a daily basis, on line, with those who have adopted an inaccurate perception of law enforcement and all it entails. They have been spoon fed untruths by those with a voracious agenda, and it has put our law enforcement officers, all over the country, at risk. I cannot do more than talk, discuss, try to iron out the inaccuracies and spend time on my computer doing this. Making this donation to an outstanding officer who put his very life on the line for the safety of the rest of us, was a tangible thing I could do. It was as much a statement that there are people who have HIS back in whatever way we can, and it was as great a statement of appreciation as I am able to give. I doubt the family would be enamored by my showing up at the hospital room offering to make coffee runs. So this is what I can do. It made ME feel good, and it was a positive communication of support, however small, to the Cederberg family.

Although it is terrible what officer Cederberg is going through, I don't see the purpose of a "Go fund me account" with a goal of 100K. Being an employee of the State Police and especially being hurt while on duty he should never see a medical bill! His pay should also not be affected regarding the incident! What am I missing here, is the 100K going to be a "Bonus" or "Reward" for being hurt while performing his sworn duty? if anybody has a sensible answer please share!!

Oh, your updates just leave me in tears. So wonderful to read ! It maybe just "doing my job" when one is in uniformed services such as police, firefighters and EMT/ Paramedics ....BUT without all you the rest of us would be up a stream without a paddle ! So, please, take good care of yourself , listen to your nurses because we know best :-)) ,take your meds !! , get plenty of rest so you can heal well AND be KIND towards yourself as you heal and recover. It will be a long haul I'm sure but it seems you have the ability to do anything you set your mind to . You have my admiration and that of my son who is also in law enforcement back east, as well as that of thousands more . Sending wishes for good healing and to a good NEW YEAR for you and all your family. ♥

Oh, your updates just leave me in tears. So wonderful to read ! It maybe just "doing my job" when one is in uniformed services such as police, firefighters and EMT/ Paramedics ....BUT without all you the rest of us would be up a stream without a paddle ! So, please, take good care of yourself , listen to your nurses because we know best :-)) ,take your meds !! , get plenty of rest so you can heal well AND be KIND towards yourself as you heal and recover. It will be a long haul I'm sure but it seems you have the ability to do anything you set your mind to . You have my admiration and that of my son who is also in law enforcement back east, as well as that of thousands more . Sending wishes for good healing and to a good NEW YEAR for you and all your family. ♥
