We are going to raise as much money as we can for Nathan Cicle’s recovery!
As many of you already know, Nathan Cicle was involved in a scooter crash on October 26, 2013 in Saint Petersburg. Nathan was driving his scooter eastbound on Central Avenue when two j-walkers attempted to cross the street in front of him. Nathan swerved to avoid hitting them and was ejected from the scooter, hitting his head on the pavement. Nathan suffered life threatening head injuries and spent weeks in the intensive care and trauma unit at Bayfront hospital.
This past week Nate was discharged from the hospital and is now being cared for by his sister, Shannon Cicle. Nate is doing really great and has shown amazing progress, but he is not out of the woods yet. We need to raise enough money to pay for essential medical care.
Unfortunately, Nathan does not have insurance. Shannon is attempting to pay for the medical service’s that are needed during Nate’s recovery, but it is very expensive and difficult, and, after the siblings have spent the last 18 months as their mother's caregivers, there is no one left in the family to help. We are hoping that Nathan’s friends and community can raise funds to help pay for important therapy and doctors appointments as well as lighten some of the cost associated with everyday living expenses, as neither Nathan, nor his sister, can work while he is needing around the clock care.
We are all so very lucky and thankful to have Nathan still around, and want to get him the care he needs. The Cicles are waiting to hear back from public assistance healthcare programs, but, unfortunately, the rehabilitation process cannot wait and time is of the essence.
