OAKHURST — After more than six months, Nicolas Medina is back at home following a devastating car accident, from which he has recovered beyond all expectation. Now, friends and supporters are invited to a celebration on Saturday, May 27 at the Oakhurst Community Center from 2 – 5 p.m. Let there be cake!
“Nicolas was in an accident on Oct. 28, 2016, where he suffered a severe traumatic brain injury,” explains his mom and champion, Martha Medina.
“His prognosis was extremely dismal but Nic has overcome all odds. After two hospitals and four months of rehab at Centre for Neuro Skills in Bakersfield, he’s on his way to a full recovery.”
Nicolas, 19, has been and continues to be an inspiration to many, including doctors, practitioners and therapists, along the way.
“Working with Nic has been one of the most rewarding things I have even done,” says Ashley Pinkerton, who practices energy medicine. “He has shown me that anything is possible when we align our will to live with the power of the Almighty that lives within us all. His journey has shown me that when we harness this connection and our own innate ability to heal ourselves, miracles happen. Nic constantly inspires me to reach beyond the limitations we place on ourselves and others.”
With Nic finally back in the foothills, where he previously worked at Raley’s and graduated from Minarets High School, friends and family have planned a special event to celebrate.
“The community wrapped our family in love and we humbly invite you all to come give this miracle a hug on Saturday, May 27 at the Oakhurst Community Center.”
It’s a potluck, Nic’s mom says, so please bring a dish your family likes, to share. There will already be cake for the party, so no desserts are requested. Donations are accepted but not required. Raffle tickets and drinks will be available for purchase. Raffle donations can be dropped off at Pak & Page in Oakhurst.
“Thank you for your prayers and positive thoughts,” Martha says with gratitude. “You helped our family through the worst experience we’ve ever faced and we would love to hang out with you for the day.”
