Nick, age 14 and our hero, died unexpected of brain cancer. Here is his story.
Nick had been suffering from what was originally thought to be migraines since August 2012. The episodes progressively increased in intensity and lasted for one to two days causing Nick to vomit, have body aches and sleep for hours. Usually within a day or two, the symptoms would subside and Nick would continue with his regular routine, seeming perfectly fine.
His episode on November 19 of headaches and vomiting resulted with a trip to the ER where he received IV fluids and anti-nausea medication and was sent home to rest. He became progressively weaker throughout the day, incapable of getting comfortable, weak from being unable to keep food down and incredibly tired. He had a follow-up appointment scheduled for Tuesday, November 20th at 9:20 a.m., at which time, we were going to request a CT scan for our own peace of mind.
At 4:45 a.m. on November 20, Nicholas was found groaning on the floor beside the bed, having a seizure. He was rushed to the ER in Maple Grove at 5 a.m. where they immediately performed a CT scan. The doctor returned with the news that there was a significant brain tumor discovered and he was being sent by ambulance to Children's Hospital in Minneapolis.
Despite all of the nurses and doctors efforts our little boy died on Dec 16th 2012.
Nick's story is an all too familiar one that too many families endure. He was an athlete, student, brother, son, a dreamer, but most importantly just a kid who never got the chance to live out his dreams. There are so many firsts he never was able to experience because cancer cut his life short.
In his 14 years on earth we were able to enjoy his contagious smile, his incredible sense of humor and his good-hearted kindness. If Nick were able to choose a cause to fight for this would be it because he would never want anyone to suffer from this horrible disease. We know he would want to fight for a cure. Although Nick is no longer with us, our memories of him will last forever. Please honor Nick and all those children who have lost the battle of childhood cancer by making a donation.
Nick - you will be forever loved and always remembered in our hearts.

The Champions for Childhood Cancer Research program is a tool for families to use when friends, family members and coworkers ask “what can we do to help?” It’s a place for families to celebrate and honor the milestones of children who survive their cancer battles, as well as a place to remember those special children who did not survive.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund knows that a family that experiences the diagnosis of cancer or a genetic disease related to cancer needs a lot of support throughout the journey. The one thing they want the most though is a cure for their child and for any child whose family hears that devastating and frightening diagnosis.

Children’s Cancer Research Fund shares that focused goal — to eradicate childhood cancer. We are a national non-profit investing in a leader in the prevention, diagnosis, treatment and cure of childhood cancer, the University of Minnesota Masonic Cancer Center. Together, we are accelerating the pace of discoveries — from research lab to patient care — that are revolutionizing the way childhood cancer is treated worldwide. Children’s Cancer Research Fund also educates the public about childhood cancer and supports quality-of-life programs for pediatric cancer patients and their families as they undergo their cancer treatment.
