About This Cause

Nicholas Andrade, a 2012 Charlotte Catholic High School graduate, suffered a tragic accident in September 2012 when he dove into a river in Brazil causing a severe spinal cord injury. This injury left Nick paralyzed and unable to breathe on his own. We hope and pray that with the proper rehabilitation, Nick will be able to regain his ability to breathe on his own without a ventilator, and regain movement in his limbs. Our goal is to raise the funds necessary to offset Nicholas's growing medical costs.


Nick needs $80,000 to assist with the ongoing expenses to get him off the ventilator and help regain movement in his limbs.

    Nicholas came through surgery on June 30th, 2014 in San Diego, CA. He was supposed to be in there about 8-10 hours, but it ended up taking 15 hours. He awoke from the anesthesia without any problems. He has made great progress ever since. The greatest concern was now for any type of infection to set in. Our family took turns staying with him round the clock in the SICU and the staff at Hillcrest Hospital was great too. The worked alongside us the whole way. Nicholas was in a lot of pain and took some medications, but within 2 weeks weaned himself off of all of them. He was discharged on July 12, 2014 to the Bannister House near the hospital for further recovery. Since we drove out to CA, he must heal completely before attempting a drive back home to NC. Please keep him in your prayers. He's done great so far!
