The family of Rolly Nicolas are uniting to raise money to help pay for Back Desiccated Discs Operation and/or Long Term Therapy.

The L3-L4, L4-L5, L5-S1 discs are desiccated.... This is the MRI findings on my brother, Rolly, on May 8, 2012. Once very physically active in doing so many things but now, most of his time is spent in bed. 15 mins is the longest he can sit up or stand up. This is causing him excruciating pain and I, being a sigle mother of 4, can only help with medications to ease the pain. One doctor says "Back Disc Operation" and another suggests "long-term therapy." It has been almost 2 months since he was diagnosed and until necessary treatment starts, he will be suffering continuously from intolerable pain, the kind of pain, which according to him, no words can even describe.

Our family is trying to raise funds in order for treatments to start. We don't know what the total expenses will be but we have to get something started. The money donated will be used to see another specialist, the necessary treatment needed (whether it be surgery or long-term therapy w/o surgery), medications and any medical expenses. This unexpected family crisis has caused our family emotional and physical distress, because of the fact that we are very limited to sending help. The longer we wait, the more harder and painful it becomes for him.

All your generous contributions, thoughts and prayers are deeply appreciated. May God return to you your gift in abundance and overflowing. And thru your kind hearts, my brother would soon get the treatment he needs in order to get his life back.

For any inquiry, please email at If you want to send something by mail, please forward to: 2175 N. California Blvd. Ste. 1000, Walnut Creek, CA 94596, attn: R.Nicolas

Thank you,
The Nicolas Family
