He has been cancer free for over 8 years!
There will always be physical and emotional side effects from having cancer and there is a wonderful Cancer Summit he is hoping to attend in April.
This is my son, Nick. 10 years ago he was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma.
See that lump on the right shoulder blade?
That was it! The cancer!
It was a long hard journey, for Nick, for our family.
He often had a smile on his face, even when it was tough.
There were many, many surgeries.
This was the big one:
The took out his entire shoulder and replaced it with metal. 13 hours of surgery.
Can you see that right shoulder, it dips a bit. This doesn’t slow Nick down.
He was diagnosed over 8 years ago with a second cancer. This time it was Leukemia. He needed a bone marrow transplant. This is Carissa (Nick’s sister) she was a match and became his donor.
Nick had been cancer free for over 8 years.
Why do I share? Well, Nick is now 23, he is a good person. He volunteer coaches a youth volleyball team, he has done many fund raisers for American Cancer Society and last year he was a camp counselor at Ronald McDonald Camp. He is trying to raise money to attend a Young Adult Cancer Summit. I am asking for financial support for my son. This will help me personally and help others when he gives back.
Can you help him? Even just a little?
