Though he recently lost his left leg in a freak accident, Nick has no complaints. He's a real hero in our eyes, as his attitude towards his situation leads you to understand... it's just a Nick.

We can rebuild him . . .
Today was an exceptionally good day. Having taken delivery of his new ottobock C-leg 4, Nick is now officially bioNick! It’s kind of humbling that we are at this point in Nick's recovery, with Veterans Day still in our rear view mirror; as this microprocessor controlled, hydraulic leg that will give our son his mobility back was developed to address what so many injured soldiers have required over the last few decades. We are extremely grateful for these technological advances and just seeing that new knee supporting our son today was about the best gift his mother and I could ask for! I’m pretty sure I can speak for Nick’s whole family when I say that we are eager for the next phase of his recovery because we’ll all get to take part in it - getting out and walking strong again!
