Inspiring Edison High Soccer Star Overcomes Brain Injury

June 9, 2017
When Nicky Macchiavello was 17, a motorcycle accident at a motocross track changed his life forever. The HS varsity soccer player crashed and suffered a traumatic brain injury, landing him in a medically-induced coma at Arrowhead Regional Medical Center for the next 2 ½ months. The Huntington Beach community rallied around Nicky, holding car washes, selling bracelets and hosting Go Fund Me sites to help with Nicky’s medical costs. It wasn’t long before Nicky was back at school and back on the soccer team (as captain!) with an incredible story that shines a light on the power of community, friendship and a positive attitude.
