This Saturday night at 7pm there will be a comedy show benefit at Monroe Township High School to support Mike Nichols, the 17 year old hockey player who fractured his spine after being checked into the boards  from behind in a game on Jan 4th.

Performing along with myself will be Stanley Cup Champion and Broad Street Bully Dave “The Hammer” Shultz, along with Jimmy “Roundboy” Graham and Eric Potts. The night will also feature a silent auction. All proceeds will be going directly to the family.

There is an incredible YouTube video done by Indy that Nichols mother Christine feels personifies her son.  Check it out below. The song can also be found on iTunes with all proceeds going to the family as well.

 Mike’s mother Christine says her son is on the road to recovery.  Small steps everyday but they are steps in the right direction.  He has been in The Kessler Institute for one week now.  He has 3 hours of occupational and physical therapy everyday.  He passed his swallow test and is now on a liquid diet.  Tomorrow he will have ice cream!  He can speak and is getting his voice back.  He can move his left arm.  Mike has no more fevers either. Mike has been  fever-free for 5 days...YEAH! It will be a long road but Mikey is convinced he will walk again.  He has an amazingly positive attitude.

Mikey started playing hockey when he was 7 years old.  He is still an avid hockey fan.  He is the biggest supporter of Team USA out there.  He was asking everyone for updates on today's game while he was in therapy.  His passion for hockey will never die.

Mike is still the same person he was before his injury.   His charismatic personality has not been injured at all.  He is always smiling and winking at all of the ladies.  They have come to realize how many lives Mikey has touched from the overwhelming support they have received.   Mikey and his family are very grateful for all those who have sent well wishes and prayers.  Hopefully you can make it to Monroe Township THIS Saturday night Feb 22 at 7pm.
