The Nicols Family

Megan Nicols is just 14 months old and suffers from Osteogenesis Imperfecta, a genetic disorder in which bones break easily – sometimes for no apparent reason. The disease can also cause weak muscles, brittle teeth, a curved spine, and hearing loss. Megan will spend the rest of her life in a wheelchair.

Referred to CFC by the Butterfly Program, Ryan and Leslie Nichols had nowhere to turn. As the Nichols home was not wheelchair accessible, Jerry contacted the Homebuilders Foundation and they offered to widen doorways throughout the home as well as build a ramp leading up to the front door.  Caruso Family Charities assisted the Nichols family with the payment of several months mortgage payments to help ease their financial burden.


Rick Spencer – donated his time and materials for Nichols family home.

Rick purchased the materials and volunteered his personal time to widen the doorways throughout the Nichols family home. He made it possible for the home to be wheelchair accessible. Baby Megan is learning to use her motorized wheelchair and will now be able to navigate it throughout the Nichols family home making her life a lot easier and more enjoyable.

Metro Denver Home Builders Foundation

Volunteers of this great organization spent the day building a wheelchair ramp leading up to the front door of the Nichols family home enabling easier accessibility for Baby Megan’s wheelchair.

Thanks to all for your generous support of Caruso Family Charities. Your help really does make a difference!
