Nick is your everyday 8 year old, he loves to play football for Arbutus and gosh don't even think to put Legos in front of him because you won't see him for hours. Nick was living his life as any 8 year old would, spending his days going to school at westtowne elementary coming home playing with his younger brother and sister and playing football for the Arbutus Eagles. On Saturday Nicholas went to his football game as he always did except when he walked off the field he didn't feel the same as he did the day prior this time he walked off and was in pain! Nicks mom thought maybe it's just tired muscles but nicks behavior showed otherwise, so immediately she went to the doctors who in turn sent her straight to St Agnes emergency room. While his parents waited for the doctor to come back after a catscan they new something wasn't right when they asked to speak to them outside the room away from Nicks presence. The doctor told his parents every parents worst fears that they had found a 9 cm mass in his abdomen and needed transported straight to John Hopkins Children Hospital for further testing, sadly Nick didn't get to go home test confirmed not only did he have cancer but it was a Rare form and had spread to his lungs already. Nicks mom and dad are your average family they both work everyday but struggle like many of us do and live paycheck to paycheck and now due to Nick needing to stay in the hospital for surgerys, bone marrow testing, biopsies, chemotherapy and radiation they will have to miss multiple days of work.
