On August 21, 2018 our son Nicholas was shot in the face and head as he tried to leave what he and his friends viewed as an escalating situation. He was rushed to the ER in critical condition, fighting for his life. Nicholas is in an ICU unit getting round the clock care. Each day is a gift full of his amazing strength and will to live.
