Gold Angel Nick
Nick loved playing football, baseball, and Legos. In September 2016, Nicholas was at his football game when he walked off the field in pain. His mom initially thought it was just muscle pains from football; however, she could tell from his behavior it was something more. They went to the doctor, then the emergency room, where doctors conducted a Cat Scan. They discovered a 9 cm mass in his abdomen, and transported him to John Hopkins Children’s Hospital for further testing. His parents’ worst nightmare came true. The tests revealed not only did he have cancer, Rhabdomyosarcoma, but it had spread to his lungs. Nick started chemo immediately and had surgery to remove the tumor in January 2017. Unfortunately, Nicholas passed at the age of 9.
