Nick's family had a tragic accident which has left them shattered.Please help them in any way possible.Thanks

On saturday night our brother Amir "Nick" Ekbatani was riding his motorcycle down PCH and Beryl when a taxi cab in the oncoming lane struck him on his left side. He was pronounced 90% dead when the police showed up and was rushed to the intensive care unit. Nick has no recollection of how he got to the hospital. The tragic part of this story is that the doctors had to amputate his left leg. Anyone who's everyone know's that Nick is the most active, strongest person we know. For those of you who don't, he was a massive football player all throughout high school (South Torrance High School) and into college where he played offensive line at UCLA. Apart from that, he has always been a caring, loving, gentle giant kind of guy who has had an everlasting effect on not only his friends and family, but his peers as well. It was because of his strength and his motorcycle helmet that his life wasn't taken. We are waiting for him to become more conscious and stable to break him the news about his leg.
Nick has a good health insurance plan but we all know how far it can only take us. What I'm proposing is this donation page. I know his family would be so grateful for any kind of support all of us are willing to give him. His recovering process will be that main factor in our support for him.
Knowing Nick, I want to do all I can to make sure he will have the best prosthetics he can get so he can restart his life being as active and social as he was before the accident. I've done some research and the standard price for a prosthetic leg is around 30,000 dollars but I think we can 50,000 so thats I'm making the goal for. We don't HAVE to reach this goal but if we did I know it would be a huge weight lifted off from the Ekbatani's back's. Again, anything will help. And if you can't donate then I would just like you to please read this story of one of the greatest men I know and pass it along to others. Thanks, god bless, and have Nick and his family in your prayers.
