Nick’s heartbreaking life story is contained in Saving Ourselves from Suicide—Before and After: How to Ask for Help, Recognize Warning Signs, and Navigate Grief, a book by Linda Pacha. Part Nick’s tragic story and part compassionate guide, it contains helpful information and encouragement for those desperately trying to stay in this world and anyone who has suffered a significant loss. This book is published by AutumnBloom Press, owned and operated by Nick’s Network of Hope. All net proceeds from the sale of this book will be distributed to Nick’s Network of Hope, a nonprofit, to carry out the mission to serve others.

On April 29, 2013, the world lost a very pure and loving soul. Nick leaves behind a network of hope to help others who are in pain—Nick’s Network of Hope.  We believe Nick would want you to know that although he temporarily couldn’t feel hope, it was there. It is always there. If you too feel hopeless right now, reach out and get help. You may feel like you’re alone, but you are not. There are many people out there who care about you and want to help. Take a deep breath and reach out.
