This is Nicholas; a precious 1 year old boy. He is the youngest of 5 children and is full of energy, giggles, playfulness and joy….an incredible blessing to his family. Recently, Nick's family has been devastated with unthinkable news, a parent’s worst nightmare. Nick was diagnosed with Stage 4 Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma (ARMS). Only 350 cases of this rare form of cancer are diagnosed in the United States each year.
The treatment process for Nick will be aggressive due to the stage and malignancy of the cancer. In addition, it has metastasized to his lymph nodes. The journey ahead is long for Nicholas. He is scheduled to have 43 weeks of chemotherapy, possible radiation, regular scans & tests to monitor the cancer, and surgeries. Due to the aggressiveness of the cancer and the intense treatment involved, Nick’s mother had to take an unpaid leave of absence from work. She is dedicated to taking her son to his weekly treatments some times 5 days a week. Our wish is to help make the path for Nicholas, his parents, and their whole family a little smoother.
We ask for your support to help the family focus on Nick and his fight. Your participation in this event will help minimize the expenses incurred from treatment and loss of income and will show your support to this amazing family and their precious little boy. I once read a quote describing little boys as, “superheros in disguise.” Please pray for Nicholas to use all his power in fighting this illness. Let’s all get in Nick’s Corner and help Nick kick this cancer!
