If you guys would like to hear about any updates with Nicole, please feel free to contact her family! Thank you!
Nicole Ruffolo is a senior at the University of Iowa, but orignially from Bloomingdale, Illinois. She is a loving daughter, sister, and friend to many, and we are asking for your support in this difficult time.
This past Friday night/Saturday morning Nicole was hit by a car while walking at a crosswalk. It was a hit and run accident that took place on Purdue's campus while she was visiting her friend, Tara, for the weekend. The driver was caught immediately and taken into custody. Nicole was rushed to the emergency room for head trauma surgery, but was quickly stabilized. She is now in critical condition and is in a medically-induced coma. Nicole is a very strong person and we are confident that she will recover.
Her and her family could really use our love and support at this time. The money we raise will go to help Nicole and her family with hospital bills, traveling funds, ongoing treatment, etc. Any amount of money can make a difference! Thanks everyone!
