My Story

In the spring of ‘07, fourteen-year-old Nick Reed was diagnosed with a rare and deadly cancer, Stage IV Alveolar Rhabdomyosarcoma. After 5 years of being cancer-free, at nineteen, Nick faced a terminal cancer diagnosis after his freshman year of college: Stage IV Osteosarcoma. After a courageous battle, Nick’s long struggle ended at the age of twenty. He was a 2011 graduate of Salem High School, where he was a drum major his junior and senior years: Nick had also been a member of the band since the 5th grade. He was a part of jazz band for three years, in which he played bass guitar. Nick was also a member of the National Honor Society and the German National Honor Society. He was enrolled at North Central University in Minneapolis, where he was studying pastoral ministries when he got sick again. Nick loved to serve God, and was very active at the Rogers Assembly of God in Rogers,OH, Gardener Chapel in New Castle, Pa., and the South Oaks Community Church in Elgin, MN. He was active in outreach and ministry work in the inner-cities. 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.
