Victor Martinez, 4, of Hammonton, shown with his mom Nicolata Martinez and sister Thalia, 13, in their hone in Hammonton, Tuesday Aug 29, 2013. He was born with a rare condition called Nager Syndrome and needs constant nursing supervision due to breathing through a tracheostomy tube, deafness and other medical complications. His family is requesting that the Hammonton School District pay to have his regular nurses accompany him to school, but the district is trying to save money by hiring its own nurse.
Victor Martinez, 4, is held by registered nurse Karen Fullerton-Elsohn, Thursday Aug. 28, 2013.,who has cared for him since he was a baby. Victor�s mother, Nicolata Martinez, wants Fullerton-Elsohn to accompany Victor to preschool, but the Hammonton School District is hiring its own nurse to save money. The family feels Victor�s problems, which include deafness and breathing through a tracheostomy tube, are too complex for a new nurse to handle suddenly.
