My Story

Nicholas is a vibrant, energetic little boy. He has grown so much since his diagnosis. He has matured and learned more than a little boy needs to at his age, much like other childhood cancer victims. He did outstanding through all his 60-week treatment, and was able to live life as full as he could whenever we weren't in the hospital. We are extremely lucky with his diagnosis and prognosis, but it will always be a part of what our life is. He has been off chemo for a little over a year, and we're working really hard to keep it that way. Nicholas loves trucks and tractors and continues to add to his "fleet" every chance he gets!! Watching a big machine in action, or getting a chance to ride on is like heaven on earth for him. He loves being outside and being active, as well as reading books and chilling at home with mom and dad and his little brother. Nicholas has such an incredible network of family and friends around him that he won't fully understand how lucky he is until he is able to look back on this time. He has a great heart and is thoughtful and kind beyond measure. His dad and I are grateful every day for him and we're all better people for having him in this world with us!!
