ShoutLife.com, part of the FrontGate® Media family, has partnered with Nicolai to feature his story and build awareness throughout their social networking community at ShoutLife.com.  Nicolai has established a goal of raising $110,000 through his ShoutLife Friends to impact another 2,000 disabled people around the world.

It&rsquos not a question of &lsquoif.&rsquo It&rsquos a question of &lsquohow many?&rsquo&rdquo says Scott A.
