Appeal to ALL BRUINS for former OL Nick Ekbatani

Bumped. Calling all Bruins. Time to get the UCLA family on BN to get behind Nick. Please take a moment to help him out today. We are all pulling for you Nick. GO BRUINS. - BN Eds.

Hello Bruin family, sad news. This past weekend Nick was hit by an oncoming taxi while riding his motorcycle on PCH. He suffered severe injuries and is currently in the ICU and unfortunately had to have his left leg amputated. This is truly tragic. Nick was a great guy while at UCLA and was a huge supporter of the UCLA football team after leaving.

I hope this is a chance for the UCLA community to unite together and help Nick out as well. A fund has been set up by his family to help out with the medical expenses a prosthesis may end up costing him, as a high-end prothesis is not cheap, nor are they covered by most insurances.

Take a moment just to check out the donation site and read a bit about him. He's a great guy, and I really wish him nothing but the very best in his recovery. The Big Nick Fund
