Special Travel Awareness In Need

Nick Chisholm is a Kiwi legend.

At the age of 27 (15 years ago) Nick suffered a major brain stem stroke whilst playing rugby, leaving him with a condition called 'Locked-in Syndrome.' Nick is completely mentally aware, but cannot walk or talk and has limited movement. Nick wasn't supposed to live, but his determination, strength, and positivity got him through the dark days, and now he continues to defy the odds. Nick has regained more movement and strength than ever thought possible...he trains three hours a day at his gym - everyday. His hard work has seen him become the four time NZ Wheelchair body-building champion (he's going for it again in 2016!), and in 2015 he won the prestigious Spirit of Attitude Award at the Attitude Awards in Auckland.

Nick is only half of the story though, he fell in love with his gorgeous wife Nicola over the internet in 2009 and it didn't take long until Nicola was living in NZ as Nick's carer, but more importantly, his girlfriend. The pair married in 2013.

Now the Chisholms want to have a child, it's not as easy for them as it is for many in order for them to fulfill their dreams, they need to go to the USA to find an egg donor and complete their family. The waiting list in NZ is two years, and this is time Nick and Nicola don't have. There aren't many more deserving couples around than these two...every dollar counts...please donate and let's help them create! #projectbabychisholm
