The family and friends of Nicole Skoog are uniting to help her with medical expenses for neurosurgery and would appreciate your support!

My daughter, Nicole, has been suffering from a debilitating condition called occipital neuralgia. She has suffered from chronic daily migraine for over a year now every single day. Being an ER RN herself has weighed heavily on her; not being able to help others, do what she loves, and what she was meant to do. She has been unable to work for the last 12 months, undergone 4 cervical spinal surgical procedures (epidurals in C2 and C3, as well as a C2-4 facet block, 3 occipital nerve blocks, countless hospitalizations, and has tried over 45 medications, which many have caused horribly painful side effects such as anemia, severe constipation, numbness/tingling, and numerous kidney stones. It is congenital. She was born with numerous cranial nerves that have grown through the muscles under her scalp. Car accidents many years ago and a worker's comp injury has triggered muscle spasms that have limited blood supply to these nerves, triggering the inflammatory process and scar tissue...making it worse. She vomits almost daily, has been taken away from the joy of her career and life and I need my fearless, caregiving daughter back. She is need of neurosurgery by renowned neurosurgeon Dr. Carlton Perry and plastic surgeon for cranial resection and occipital nerve decompression surgery.  We are attempting to raise $15,000 for Nicole's surgery at Memorial Hermann Hospital in Houston, Texas in October. Any donation is tremendously appreciated. Let's help someone who has devoted her life to helping those in need...I need my daughter back. An Internet fund is set up for Nicole at US Bank under "Nicole Skoog's Medical Donation" account and is TAX DEDUCTIBLE! We will be hosting several more fundraisers by our band and others in Tacoma. Details will be announced soon! God Bless!
