My Story

Thank you for supporting me and the more than 300,000 kids worldwide who will be diagnosed with cancer this year. By sharing the gifts of your time, talent and money with the St. Baldrick’s Foundation, you're supporting research to give all kids with cancer a better chance for a cure. My name is Nik and I was diagnosed at 10 years old with TCell ALL, I spent the first 3 months of my diagnosis in the hospital battling several infections and side effects from chemo. I always have a smile on my face even when I'm not feeling so brave. My cancer journey has been longer than most because I've had several delays due to infections. I still have a long ways to go in my journey, but I try to face it with integrity and a positive attitude. I love to help younger kids in the cancer community as I have younger siblings and they mean a lot to me. I hope one day that I can work for NASA as a computer engineer and volunteer within the cancer community to help kids going through the same thing that I have gone through. I want to be a light of hope to all the kids who are fighting just like me!
