My Story

Nick is a true survivor of Bi-lateral Wilms Tumor. Diagnosed at age 1, he has come a long way and kicked cancers butt! Nick had 4 years of heavy chemo and 6 days of radiation.He is a genuinely nice boy with a huge heart. He LOVES all animals and R2D2. Nick is an orange belt in Tae Kwon Do. He can not participate in contact sports because he only has 1/3 of 1 kidney left. Nick will need a transplant in the future and his mom and little sister Gianna are matches for him. He is an AWESOME kid and we thank GOD that he is here with us.
