Being able to donate my time and money to the Hurricane Sandy victims is my way of giving back to people who are in need.

Knoxville, Tenn. (PRWEB) January 09, 2013

Nathan Wells, 19-year-old who wrote a book detailing his struggle with a mysterious illness caused by an experimental H1N1 vaccine, donated more than $140,000 worth of supplies to Hurricane Sandy relief last month.

“I feel incredibly lucky that I not only survived my illness but have been able to help others,” said Wells. “Being able to donate my time and money to the Hurricane Sandy victims is my way of giving back to people who are in need.”

Shortly after Sandy tore through the northeast, Wells rented a U-Haul and packed it, along with two other vans, full of supplies. He purchased thousands of blankets, hundreds of coats, gloves, hats, medicine, food and first aid supplies. He drove from Tennessee to New York, stopping at distribution centers in schools, churches and other organizations to drop off supplies and help where needed.

At the age of 16, Wells began suffering from extreme weight loss and chronic headaches. He sought answers from 12 different hospitals throughout the southeast and underwent test after test, yet no one was able to provide a proper diagnosis. He was later diagnosed with mercury toxicity from an experimental H1N1 vaccination. This experience led the now-19-year-old to publish the journal he maintained through the sickness in hopes of inspiring others.

Wells’ book "Am I The Enemy?" is now available Barnes & Noble and Amazon. For more information on Nathan Wells and his charitable donations, visit http://www.nathanscotwells.com.
