Hey guys, was just passed along some encouraging news about former UCLA offensive lineman Nick Ekbatani, who was in a car accident last weekend that resulted in a severe leg injury, and ultimately, amputation up to the knee.
“Nick stood up today with the help of a walker and they put him in a wheelchair so he can get used to sitting up and everything. He’s doing really well.”
The Big Nick Fund is charging ahead still, with more than $37,000 raised in just a few days, due in no small part to the support of UCLA community. Kudos.
