Go Fund Me – Nathan Rogalski: Most Genuine Kid There Is
Nathan Rogalski, probably the most genuine kid you will ever meet. This kid will drop anything that he has planned if you ask him to do anything for you. He is a phenomenal athletes, amazing teammate, friend, and overall person. Recently he has been sent to the OU medical center and we have been told that he needs to have a drain put in his head to clear the pressure. If you are willing to donate anything helps. Prayers are what is needed most. We love and miss you Nate❤️ #4NR
